Fire Ant Flickers: Introduction
I don't think my brain squirms like a toad, but my writing might.*

Eighteen years ago, the first “Random Thursday” post was published on The Fire Ant Gazette, evolving to over 140 posts under that category. Inspired by Blackie Sherrod’s “Scattershooting” columns, this multifaceted format suited the my short attention span and engaged readers without overwhelming them. However, the concept has lost its appeal, prompting a need for rebranding. I sought ChatGPT’s advice for a new category name, considering suggestions like “Ant Bites” and others. The favorite, “Fire Ant Flickers,” might be adopted, subject to reader feedback. This post reflects on the evolution and potential refresh of my blogging approach.
