A few years ago, I was a blogger. I wrote about books and book-selling on a wordpress blog. People read it, which was weird. Turns out only a few of those readers enjoyed my (occasional) posts about video games. There was some grumbling in the comments.
So, I went and created another blog about my adventures in the MMO I was playing at the time. People read that too, which was even weirder.
Then I got a job working for a video game company and found I had no time for blogging anymore.
Time passed, layoffs happened, and I found myself with a ton of time on my hands.
I’ve spent time applying for jobs, I’ve spent time working on a novel (let’s be honest here: I’m always either working on a novel or finding new and interesting ways to avoid working on a novel), I’ve messed around with tumblr and paid more attention to twitter, but I’ve missed blogging.
I thought about reactivating one of my old blogs, but that seemed silly when they’d lain dormant for so long.
So I vaporized them and made a new one.
I plan to write about writing, about books I’ve loved and things I stumbled over on the internet and found interesting. I don’t plan to be mean (and I hope to be called out on it if I ever am), but I will sometimes be snarky. I can’t help it, it’s who I am. I might ramble, I might benefit from more judicious self-editing, and I’m open to any and all constructive criticism (“YOU SUCK!!!11eleventy” is an example of the kind of comment I will roll my eyes at and possibly delete).
Witterings about TV (mostly RuPaul’s Drag Race and Project Runway), and various other odds and sods can be found on my Tumblr.
Also, I do not have a penis and so do not require Viagra, nor do I care how much money your sister’s boyfriend’s cousin earns working from home. I only appreciate spam when it’s being sung about by Monty Python.
