I began this blog as an easy way to keep my writing organized and to practice. Then it grew and took on a life of its own,
Since Blogger can only archive but not organize each post into categories, and I didn’t want to go the different blogs for different posts especially since half the time I have no idea what’s going to come out, I began to get my own site together. It’s up but not in really great shape yet. Still tweaking it. WWW.Courtingdestiny.com–hopefully it will be tweaked and ready this coming week.
One of the things that is taking so long is my compulsion to do things correctly, once and then let things just happen. I want to archive my old work that’s on Blogger in categories, and that’s taking awhile. Plus I’m having a hard time thinking up categories. I will stay on Blogger and BE under the current URL so that people can find me, because I haven’t said Courtingdestiny.com 30,000 times and believe that nobody will find me.
My computer was drinking a lot, has been hung over, and is now in recovery. It had many problems most caused not by viruses, but by virus protectors, general old age (three years old–I thought it was young/middle aged) and some by a person who installed a browser she liked that I don’t use that left its footmarks even after the uninstall.
Why do kids always listen to me and adults never do? That’s generalizing and maybe rhetorical, than again maybe not.
Anyway the whole point of this post is to ask a couple of questions:
1) Is compulsion a bad thing?
2) Do other people go this compulsive when setting up a new site or even on Blogger
3) Is this a productive way to spend time or am I hiding from sending out query letters with published works?
4) Does anybody really care that the three films on my semi-permanent DVR collection are School of Rock, Love Stinks and Secretary?
5) Is blogging the almost ultimate narcissism?
6) Is it a major revolution in the way people communicate?
I’m truly curious.
