Jason Bugg, writer, editor, content manager

WHO IS JASON BUGG?

Well, that’s me. I’m a writer, editor, content manager and communications handyman extraordinaire based just outside of Asheville North Carolina in the lovely town of Waynesville. I started this site as the best sort of visual resume/portfolio that I can muster. Some of you will appreciate it, while some of you probably won’t. I get it. I’m not for everyone. But here’s to hoping that someone sees this and likes my work, likes me, or likes some combination of the two.

WRITER

Over the last decade my work has appeared in many magazines, newspapers, weeklies and online covering music, film, the arts, theater, recreation and a myriad of other activities.

 

EDITOR/CONTENT MANAGER

As an editor and content manager I’ve worked with writers, photographers, comic creators, bands and educators in helping get their message across in attractive and efficient ways.

 

WEB DESIGN/SEO

I’m also skilled in the latest SEO tools and is a huge fan of the WordPress platform. I know and understand Social Media and I’m active on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. I also have a Snapchat account, but only uses it to take bad selfies in order to make my wife laugh.

OTHER SKILLS

I’m adept in audio and video editing, I know and understand the Microsoft Office suite, all Google Apps, and I have working knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite.

 

IN ADDITION

I’m also a husband, devoted uncle, a good bass guitar player, a fan of nice bourbons and rye whiskeys, an avid Carolina Hurricanes fan, a lover of burritos and a friend to dogs near and far. Cats are alright, but not as cool as dogs. Do yourself a favor and have a look around and let me know if I can help you with any of your communication needs.

BLOG

I suppose there needs to be one of those somewhere on a site with blog in the URL, eh? Well, rest assured that The Bugg Blog has a blog with writing by the guy whose awkward picture is the first thing you notice upon visiting the site. In this area you’ll find the latest blog entries laid out by category. It’s a nice way to lay things out on this page that might make me look smart or organized to someone who might be visiting this website for the first time. But there is also a blog section of the website with everything just entered as a big, jumbled mess. You are welcome to choose. If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice. I’m pretty sure that Neil Peart of Rush said something like that, and as much I hate to paraphrase, I do believe that it’s apt at this moment.

An Anniversary

An Anniversary

So today is an anniversary. Not a happy one, and not a sad one either. My dad died five years ago, and I'm not broken up about it or sad or anything else. It's just interesting to me to note the passing of time. My dad and I had (and probably even moreso now still...

RIP Merle Haggard

When people talk about what a poet Hank Williams was, or what an outlaw Johnny Cash was or what an amazing piece of Americana Willie Nelson and his music represent, they aren't talking about those artists. Those notions are what we've been told about through marketing...

Things That Have Happened Since the Last Update

I established new personal bests in a few lifts that I do at Crossfit. My gains were big because I’m worried that I’ve been afraid to try to go heavier on my lifts. It’s been really invigorating for me to be able to lift these large amounts. My new personal bests are:...
