Adventures In Living With The Mythical
I am transferring my blog once again!

This time the blog will be located at:


In the future, I will make announcements here and link them.

This is a process I am transitioning into, so by March I will be doing that. Until then I'll make posts here, and also link there.


Well, it goes back to the original intention of this blog.

Life With A Werewolf was always intended as a fictional blog. It's a story being told in blog format. There for, I want the character of Jason Forte to stand on his own, and his world to stand on its own. It's kind of difficult to do that when the blog you're writing is attached to a profile with your name on it.

This is because most people associate blogs with the person they perceive as writing them. When this blog is Jason's it works better than when this blog is mine written as Jason's you get me?

The other reason is if I hope to ever have this blog start making money, then it definitely needs to stand on it's own. That's the full intention of this, after all.

So, anyway, that address again is: https://lifewithawerewolf.blogspot.com/

Please bookmark it and enjoy!

Thanks for reading, and enjoy.

(New uploads will be every Friday unless I can't or don't want to.)

About "Life With A Werewolf"

Life with a werewolf is a dramatic blog. As such the characters in this blog are not real but maybe loosely based on real people. The situations represented are not real but maybe loosely based on real things that have happened in my life. There are a multitude of ways to view life, this is simply one of the ways I have chosen to view mine. Updated Every Friday unless I can't or don't want to.)

I'll give a state of the blog.

First, the reason. This week was going to be a brief posting on AI and a small rant from Jason that was mainly about how bad the images where, (cause I had bing do a few images and they're bad), but instead I'm having a fight with back pain this morning which is shattering most of my concentration. Guess that's what I get for waiting until last minute to write it. Usually I start the post on Tuesday or Wednesday, then make corrections until friday and post.

The blog itself: Well, I've had a total of about 50 posts, 8656 all time views as of this posting, including 4257 this month alone. From all of those views, I've made a grand total of: $.46. Lol, I definitely don't do this for the money.

Advertising: Well, I do advertise it in one area and have been spending around $20-30 a month on it. Good thing I'm not in this for the cash.

Characters, well I've introduced several which I'm not certain who the favorite is so far as far as characters go. Anyone got any ideas? Who's yours?

I've had a total of 15 comments so far. And 2 subscribers.

Can't help but feel I'd have had a lot more if I'd have just gone with blogger to start with. Ah well, you live, you learn.

I do have questions for you guys though if you're willing to answer them.

Who is your favorite hero?

Who is your favorite villain?

Who is your favorite side character?

Is there any quests you'd really like to see?

Any other mythical creatures you'd really like me to tap into?

Just curious. I'd be grateful if you answered, but of course answering is not mandatory. Thank you all so much for reading.

This one is up only a little bit after when I wanted to post it, but not by much. The town seems to be returning to normal, more or less.

That's the current blog post.

That's the first blog post if you haven't read any of the blog yet.


And that's the first blog post in the last plot line.
If you don't know what this is:

Life With A Werewolf is a serial story told in a blog format. Jason Forte is a military veteran who was on the verge of suicide when he was "adopted" by his friend, who happens to be a werewolf. Now an official part of his pack, Jason's life gets increasingly more strange with each adventure he finds himself in. This is his blog about his adventures.

Please check it out, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask. Thanks!

I got the latest update in the adventure posted. And it's the finale of this particular story.


Next few updates I figure will be Jason rants and then we'll get into zombie stuff. There maybe at least one posting talking about the aftermath of things in the town.

If you haven't been reading any in the Absentminded Accusations storyline, start here:


If you haven't read any of the blog yet, start here:


I'm going back and forth on doing a Kheid Christmas special type thing. On the one hand, it could be entertaining, but on the other, it could turn into a cheesy Santa Clause type thing, and I really want to avoid that. The zombies will be back for Halloween though, that's a given.

And now for the other side of things: The advertisements.

I've gotten no push back from them, which I'm grateful for. Currently the blog has earned a grand total of $0.43. So, it's not like I'm making a killing here. Technically I'm operating at a loss, still. So, if they're a bit intrusive please let me know I'll see what I can do. If they're annoying or they begin advertising something offensive, let me know. After all, this is an experiment.

Thanks everyone, hope you enjoy this update. And please let me know if the ads are bothersome.

Google has finally allowed me to put ads on my blog. To be entirely honest, I forgot I even put the request in so I can't tell you how long it took, but I do have that ability now. So, please if the advertising in it gets obtrusive, let me know. If it gets annoying with certain ads, let me know. My goal here isn't to get rich off this blog, just to make SOME money from it. In truth, I'll probably make a grand total of about $5 off the blog per month from the ads, I'm not even kidding about the amount.

I have the ability to edit which ads get placed on there, so the advertisements that will be there I am trying to keep it to more family friendly ads. We'll see if they mess that up, of course. And if they do, please tell me. This, after all, is just a giant experiment on my part.

So, what's next for the blog?

In truth, I have no clue. It's always been an experiment to see if people will actually read it, and I'm stunned that so many people have read (and hopefully) enjoyed it over the months. Now, it's an experiment to see if I can earn cash with it. Any amount will do, lol.

Where's it heading next?

Again, I have no clue. Halloween is coming up, so the zombies will return, and maybe Kheid will have a grand Christmas adventure? Maybe another villain? I don't know off-hand.


Lol, not yet. I'm under no grand delusion here. I know a few of you enjoy this blog, for which I am eternally grateful. But I also know that enjoyment doesn't mean you want merchandise with hats, T-shirts, Coffee Cups, (Life With A Werewolf The Flame Thrower!) etc...

What about Patreon? All The cool kids are doing it!

Well, I was never a cool kid. I was the geek in the back of the class day dreaming through the whole thing who somehow still passed all the exams and assignments. I don't want to offer a service like that without having something for your money in return. I couldn't possibly ask people for a dollar or five dollars a month to view things in advance for example. I never have anything written in advance. I couldn't have a live stream writing session: I don't write well when people are watching me, so it would be an hour of jabbering about my ideas and not much getting on paper. And then there's the issue of HOW I write.

Well, how do you write?

I'm not telling. Seriously, I want to keep some things private here.

I am going to continue doing the audio. It will run behind the blog, and yes I understand this blog takes about five or so posts in before I get my footing with it and things start getting good. It was an experiment after all, and I'm not cutting those posts out of the audio version just to get to the good stuff.

If you'd like to know anything else, please just ask below. If you'd like another werewolf AMA or an AMA with any of the other characters, let me know. Yes, even the villains, I'll be more than happy to fill those in.

Thanks, and hopefully you're having a good Sunday, good labor day weekend or just a good time in general.

Don't you just love when your story stays hidden from you when you're writing it?

Not so hidden that it becomes writer's block, but hidden enough that each sentence and paragraph is surprising to you, and it begins to take twists you didn't for see coming? That's what this blog update did for me.


Hope you enjoy. Trying to go for a bit more creep factor than gore with this. Some of these step into Sam Raimi gory, it's true. But this one I'm hoping ventures a little closer to chills.

I'm always open to critiques. If you see a way I can improve, please let me know.

Thank you, everyone!

This one is up, if you want to read it. I'm bringing back an old villain for this one. After this series, it's Halloween time again, so for Jason and his crew that means more zombies. yay. I do have a couple ideas brewing on how our resident 'soul wrappers' are going to trick Jason into coming along with them again this year. How do you get a guy who has sworn of alcohol drunk? We'll see, I suppose.


If you want to check it out.

Thank you everyone who reads it. I do hope you're enjoying it.

So I updated this blog yesterday, but it seems to think I didn't. Though it's not sending out the reminder that I set up so, *shrugs*

Ah well. Anyway, there was a new Life With A Werewolf posted yesterday. This one I hope will be fun. Trying to play with paranoia on this one. We'll see if it works.

I got it up early! I expected this one not to be done till 3ish.


This one is kicking off a short series. I expect it to take six or eight posts, so of course that probably means 3 or 4, lol. Everything is backwards with me on these things!

Hope y'all enjoy.

I got another one up, finally.

This one is a fun piece. A pause between the insane episodes of their lives, so to speak. Next update will begin another episode and we get to see the return of a villain we haven't seen too much of to be honest. Should be good if everything works the way I expect it to. Which it rarely does and yet still comes out good most of the time. I wonder if anyone else experiences that in their writing?


Please stop by and check it out. Thanks everyone!
