I write this stuff by seeing what’s on Google News or the BBC that day that starts an idea (or drives me into telly-smashing RAAAAGE). Scribble something in a text editor (usually Google Docs), find a suitable picture on Wikimedia Commons or Flickr (paying due attention to licensing), or get a famous image and claim fair use for parody, and manipulate it in the GIMP (usually InGIMP, to be precise). Then post.
If you like a story, please do tell your friends, send the link around, click “I like it!” in StumbleUpon, click the little “Spread the love” buttons to post it to your other hangouts, etc!
Don’t forget to get the daily alert email as well.

The blog engine is WordPress, of course.
The theme is a much hacked-up version of News Magazine Theme 640 by AntiSocial Media LLC, who also sell a more elaborate version for those of you who aren’t PHP coders. One day I’ll put my version up for download.
(News of the News died of a senile host. Everything has been rescued. No, I still haven’t updated all the photos.)
