• Renovation Complete

    Welcome to the newly renovated website of Chase March. I spent quite a lot of time trying to get the site looking the way I wanted. There was no question about staying with WordPress because it truly is the best blogging platform that I have ever used. The only problem was finding a theme that […]

  • Is Blogging Dead?

    I started blogging back in 2007 and it was a great way to express myself, build a community of like-minded writers, and read some insightful articles and commentary. I used to start my day by perusing the blogosphere. I don’t do that anymore. I don’t think too many people do. My favourite bloggers stopped publishing […]

  • New Posting Schedule

    I’ve been blogging since 2007. Back then, Bloggers regularly read and commented on each other’s sites.

  • Nothing Lasts (not even audio players)

    Why doesn’t anything seem to last these days? Last year, our podcast host shut down operations and I had to find a new home for all of my audio files. In the process, some shows were lost. Today, I logged on to my favourite media player for blog posts and found this message. So, the […]

  • 200,000 Pageviews!

    Last year about this time, my blog reached 100,000 pageviews. I was proud of this milestone even though it took me four years to reach it. Now, less than one year later, I’ve doubled that number. Silent Cacophony has just reached 200,000 pageviews. Here are my stats for the week. I know I don’t have a […]

  • Silent Cacophony Turns 5!

    In March of 2007 I started this blog with a very specific goal. I wanted to become a published author and thought it would be a great idea to establish a presence online. So I started this blog with the goal and desire to become a published author within five years. Well, tomorrow, this little blog […]

  • I Should Blog That!

    Image via Wikipedia There have been many, many occasions where I have been out and about and thought, “I should blog about that!” Ideas float around in my head constantly. I can be inspired by something as simple as a comment or part of a conversation. Sometimes a great idea comes from something I have […]
