- I can crank out material. I've always had the fear that I would wake up one day and not be funny or that the comedic well had run dry. Writing this blog has allayed that fear.
- Writing every day is hard. This is not for the undisciplined.
- Atheists are a wide assortment of people. D'uh you may say - fair enough. It's interesting that my most vigorous discussions are not with Theists, they are easy to deal with, rather it is with non-God people about morality, responsibility, political action, etc.
- Atheist bloggers by and large are fairly decent people. They tolerate my antics and support the variety of ramblings that I call posts.
- I never want the Theists to go away completely. Who would I make fun of? Oh wait, I forgot about politicians, lawyers, and BP (I know they won't be in the news forever though I suspect some other company will take their honored spot).
- I've learned a lot. It's kinda funny, when you read informative posts some of that information - just by osmosis - sticks in one's head.
- My screenwriting has helped my blogging. Screenwriting is about using language economically (maybe not if you are Quentin Tarantino) blogging is similar.
- I have become less computer illiterate. Got that? I'm not even close to being computer savvy, but I'm not in the Special-Needs class anymore (and yes I can make that joke because I was in a Special Needs school/pullout classes for a time).
- My children are useful for something else beside tax deductions. I've gotten some good material from them.
- I need to learn quite a bit more so I can make fun of more people. There's a lot of crazy religions in dem dere hills! I need a map to explore every nook and cranny.

What I've Learned Blogging
It's been just over six months since I started Laughing In Purgatory and here are some tidbits I've picked up.
