Calmkate, at Aroused, has posed a series of questions about our blogging “career.” I thought they were kind of interesting. So….
What led you to start?
When I first started to blogging in 2005, it was (1) to exercise my writing chops, and (2) to feel the rush of publishing posts in the blogosphere.
Has your motivation changed since starting?
I’m more political than I was when I first started. I also write more flash fiction and respond to a lot more prompts. Now my rush comes when people read, like, and comment on my posts.
What has the experience been like?
Well, I’m still at it after 13 years, so yeah, it’s been good.
Have you learned anything?
I’ve learned to let critical comments by trolls roll off my back.
Has your writing style changed?
I write more flash fiction and respond to more prompts, as I mentioned before. But my overall writing style hasn’t changed much.
Are you planning to write a novel or are you already published?
Nope and Nope.
What advice would you give to a new blogger?
Do your own thing and don’t ask for or take advice from experienced bloggers. We don’t know what the fuck we’re talking about.
