About Me, Writing, and Advertising


This blog was founded in 2014 as primarily an outlet for me to muse about the serious topics of our day with a little wit and humor. What started out as me sharing my musings with family and friends turned into an unexpected viral success with millions of views logged over the years. The result launched a writing career that has taken me across this country and into a future without precedent.

If your brand is need of the written word, I can assure I have written on just about every topic known to man. You can book me for a gig over at The Veteran Copywriter. Now, if you want to learn how to write yourself, you can check out my online course aptly named, The Veteran Copywriter Course Here. Copywriting has created financial freedom for my family and I’m confident it can do the same for you.

Back to the blog! As we tackle the great topics of our day, I’ve always said the best compliment one can pay me is that they loved my article but disagreed with everything I said. I’m not here to convince you of anything really, but rather to simply tell you where I am at on these topics and let that springboard you on to your own thoughts.

The name Unprecedented Mediocrity reflects the notion that there is unprecedented joy in simply being rather than chasing the arbitrary standard someone likely just made up. If it is all made up anyway, then why not create your own reality and make it work. You can tell by the profile picture that I am a US Marine veteran of Iraq and as such, a good number of articles are targeted to the veteran community and those experiences. However, I must make clear that the picture above was 15 years and 50 pounds ago. So if you are looking hire me for any mercenary work, best we keep it writing shall we?

  1. Im an old Jarhead too..I like your style. If I read this right, you question authority? That’s not bad a thing..I question people..who don’t question authority.. Semper Fi!

  2. Jeff, I love your blog and read every one. I enjoy your perspective and humor. But, and you knew that was coming, please, please, please get a quality editor. While I can wade through the grammar issues and misspellings, it detracts from the joy I get reading your posts. Regardless of what you choose to do with my perspective, I will continue to read everything you write. And all this love coming from an Army guy. Semper Fi!

  3. Jeff, I’m USN(RET) and in response to para. 2 above I enjoy your blog but, true, I don’t agree with everything you say. One exception…I agree with your opinion that GEN Mattis should be POTUS. I was once stationed on an USAF base and my fellow squids (I can use that term after 30 years of ACDU) and I used to poke fun at the 75th Special Feelings Squadron until I realized that the Navy had become in many ways the most PC of all. It was a pleasure to listen to the interview from your entry: https://unprecedentedmediocrity.comif-megyn-kelly-is-a-bimbo-then-general-james-mattis-can-be-president/, Perhaps one day we will return to the days of mutual respect but no BS. I suppose a regularly inebriated old man can dream. In the mean time keep up the good work Shipmate.

    Standing by and thanks.


    • Thanks for reaching out Jim. Glad to have Vets of all eras and walks of life sharing their stories here. And yes, and old man can always dream.

  4. I love your site. You pull no punches. I just wish when I was that angry teenager I had chosen to go Marines rather than go to college. I know I would have become a better person.

  5. Enjoyed the hell out of your article about C.A.R. and appreciate your service as a “grunt” and say that with the highest respect. Nothing more hard core than 0311! I was in an artillery unit in Nam, 1/13, and considered it an honor to support 26th Marines when they stepped into a bad situation by responding with some one-0-freaking-five fire power and help to ruin CHARLIE’S day! A bad day for VC is a good day for Devil Dogs!

    Semper Fi,


  6. Edwards,

    We served in the same Bn and were in the same firefight one night. I need to ask you a serious question about a topic you may be interested in writing about. Could you email me?

    Joe Fernandez; L 3/23 Marines

  7. Please contact me with regard to advertising and guest blogging on our website. I found you via Upworks and have invited you to a few jobs there as well.

  8. Jeff, what sense do you make of how unprepared Capitol/DC police were to quell the riot on Jan 6? Why wouldn’t the National Guard or the FBI have insisted on providing back up even if local police said they didn’t need it? Don’t the feds get the final say on that kind of thing?
