Reading groovy stuff at Whiskey in My Sippy Cup (and yes, normally I’d link, but I’m a lazy ass right now). She’s teaching things that we SHOULD know but don’t. Going to explore more, but right now I need to get my ass in bed. And yes, that’s me using “ass” twice… Nice.
So, this leads me to comment: Do I consider myself a blogger? Well. Yeah. I haven’t been doing it a long time, but I have been consistent since 2006. (Wait! But it says I’ve only been on here since 2008. Yes, but I started blogging on *cough* freaking Myspace and when I shut down that ridiculous profile, I lost it all – **weeping copiously**)
Here’s the thing. I’m only mildly technically proficient on this blogging thing. I’m really more about the writing and hideously lazy about the tech/backdoor stuff.
And no, I don’t mean that in the snooty “Oh la! I’M all about the writing!” tone. No, what I mean is that this is the medium that finally broke through for me. I have absolutely sucked at getting my ass in gear and writing. I deeply desire to write science/speculative fiction, however (sadly), I suck at writing fiction. I’m a kick-ass reader, but writing?
not. so. much.
Anyway, I was wondering… Does this mean I’m not truly a blogger? I’m only marginally a writer – you know, a fiction created in my own mind. If I’m not a blogger too? Well. Then I’m screwed.
I do love Whiskey for teaching us though. In case I haven’t said it enough, she is amazing and awesome. So click my link – the one over there on the right hand side (cuz yes, I’m lazy). Read her and learn from her.
Maybe I’ll be a true blogger yet.
