ghkole at Rooster Calls has put up what she may not know is a meme: questions for us to answer about ourselves and blogging. But I'm game, as usual, so here it is:
- If you blog, do you tell people in your family or at your job about your blog?
No. My husband knows about my blog, and people find it, but I don't run around saying, "Look at my blog!" I have directed a couple folks to it directly, but not a whole lot. I have a separate more photo-laden site for family and friends to follow, that is a little more of a polished and shiny happy look at our lives. This blog is a bit more down-in-the-trenches.
- If so, how does that impact your writing?
I'm not sure. I know it effects the focus here, But mostly I direct people because of the focus, instead of focusing because of the people I direct.
- Do you keep hard copies of your blogs?
I keep a back-up copy on my computer. Which reminds me, i need to make a new one. I don't keep it entry-by-entry because I am an idiot.
- Do you ever not post comments you get?
No, but I have deleted a few that were ads or inappropriate. I do not allow anonymous posting, so that cuts down on the trolls.
- How do you balance writing versus reading?
- Do you think of it as a chore or a diversion?
It is a way of life.
- Do you use RSS to keep track of blogs, or what?
No. I don't actually read that many blogs. If I want something new, I check out where my usual crowd is sending their awards, and often see if there is anything that looks interesting on the Autism Hub. Also, I like to check out folks who comment.
- Do you worry about what you write, or what readers will think?
Sometimes. I know that my students can "Google" me and this blog pops right up, so I try to check the language and I don't often wander off my topic. But I don't do anything crazy and interesting enough to threaten my jobs or anything. Otherwise, well, this is what I'm thinking right now, There you go.
Anybody else want to help out ghkole?
