About Treated & Released


robin-mizellBased in Beaufort, South Carolina, USA, I enjoy helping people communicate in print and digital media. I’m an advocate of citizen journalism. My business website and contact information can be found at RobinMizell.com.

This blog was launched to demonstrate to my clients the value of transparency. You can read here about how I inadvertently learned to blog. Don’t be shy. Grab a blog and join the party.

Technology is the campfire around which we tell our stories.
—Laurie Anderson

Your comments

Comments are welcomed and appreciated. If you’re wondering why they don’t appear on the blog immediately, please be patient. I moderate all comments, which occasionally necessitates posting delays.

If a comment violates the law for any reason, including libel or copyright infringement, I’m obligated to edit or discard it. A spam-blocker also is enabled. Consequently, if you include HTML tags in your comments, it will take a little longer for me to find your remarks and override the spam protection. Don’t let that stop you. I want to hear what you have to say.

The illustrations


I’ve been taking photographs since I was a child and occasionally incorporate them in my work. These were taken in Northern California.

Some of the images used to illustrate Treated & Released were purchased from iStock and 123RF.

Other illustrations on this blog are in the public domain or were obtained from free stock photography sites such as freeimages, Smithsonian Institution’s Flickr photostream, Unsplash, and Flickr’s Creative Commons collection.
