Writing your Blog

Onesome: Writing-- on the web: Do you consider yourself a writer, in that you provide a narrative of some sort? ...or a responder, wherein you primarily work the meme circuit?

Well I'm definitely not a responder because this is the only meme that I do (after careful research of course). But I don't consider myself a writer. I have vivid memories of hating to write in school especially high school, so I can't imagine myself voluntarily doing it on a regular basis. As I touched on in the last post this is never going to be one of those blogs where I carefully research a topic and present it to my readers. This is more of the personal dump every random thought in my head kind (which is why I'm still not sure why you read). Although admittedly since Twitter the more random thoughts have been posted over there and my blog postings have been slightly more focused.

Twosome: your-- place: did you do your own design? ...or did you pick out something from the established templates?

Established template. I am NOT a web designer. I have tried out many blogging systems, but I am happiest at Typepad, except for one thing. Lack of pre-made designs especially compared to all the ones they are dropping over at their other property Vox. Do you hear me Typepad?!? More premade designs please for those of us that aren't web designers or businesses that can hire that are using your system. One other thing has come up. When I redesigned my photoblog in January I decided to have a gray theme running through all my various sites to connect them together (at least in my mind) especially since I'm using all kinds of different systems since I'm not a web designer. But Typepad has added a few (TOO FEW!) themes in the last few days that are tempting, although none of them are in gray. So I'm trying to decide how important it is to keep things in the gray theme (which I like) or to change things up.

Threesome: Blog-- this! What's your favorite type of thing to run across that you just can't wait to get to the computer to post? Photos count, but for the photobloggers (like Laurie and me), what is it that you just know you won't be able to hold on to for even a day?

Awww... hey that's me! *HUGS DAN* That's an interesting question. The only time I can think of that I feel a burning desire to post is when I have an exceptionally pleasant time out and about in the city. I just feel like I have to share it with somebody. Photo wise, I think once I get a decent camera phone I'll be posting a lot more things over to Flickr. There are lots of things I see out and about that I want to share right away, but my camera is so crappy on my phone.

How about you? When you're ready, post your answers in your own space, and leave a comment here so we can find you!
