More updates necessary…

Recently I found out my blog has been linked on two different sites.

Wow. And that is not a sarcastic wow, or indifferent wow. That’s a wow as if it had the exclamation point. But I’m not a big fan of the exclamation point, thus just the period.

It’s kind of flattering, without the ‘kind of’ part.

I’ve been asked on a couple different occasions why I started a blog. And it’s an easy answer. I started it on the recommendation of a friend. That’s it. I had asked this friend how to be a better writer. I write reviews for (linked on the right) and, soon, (also linked on the right). I wanted to write the best reviews possible. My friend said the best way to be a better writer is to always write. And the best way to always write is to start a blog and keep it updated.

I took his advice, as it was sound.

I never intended it to be anything more than a bitchfest. Hell, the first couple months, I barely updated.

I threw the link of my blog into my signature at Horrortalk and I got a few requests from some friends to update. Honestly, I would be lying if I didn’t think that was cool. Someone not only read my crap, but they wanted more. That’s hella-cool.

So I updated.

And then some friends started blogs.

So I updated some more, to keep up with them. I know it’s not competition, but, to me, I didn’t want to be left behind. Also, dammit, some of the blogs they started are pretty damn good and I want to be as funny and as articulate as some of the blogs I read. So I have to keep updating.

Now this. The links.

Now I have to discipline myself to update even more. Dammit.

But that’s a good dammit.

I appreciate the nods, Aric and Ms. Spinster. Considering the quality of the sites I’m being linked from, it’s a high honor.

And to those who read this and even leave a comment or two on occasion, I appreciate you as well.

I have said before, and I’ll say it again, if I didn’t have readers, I would still write. I need to if I want to be better at my reviews. But because of you guys and gals, I write more than I probably would if I didn’t think people were reading, and that helps me.

I have to stop now before I start putting Bette Midler song quotes in the mix. Then I’d have to eat some scissors, The Dead Zone style.

Yes, writing a lot IS half the key to writing well. The other half is reading.

Better writers than I have said so, and I believe them.


I definitely have the reading part down.

Hey, and also, you’re a tosser.

It’s on tomorrow. Meet me at the store at 6, eh? This was easier than sending an email. And almost as private. 🙂


What idiot told you writing often is the key to writing well?

Surely not your review editor. This blog is less coherent than your damn first drafts.



Aric, the store? Not the house. Cool.

Ace, don’t h8.


Stop saying “hella”!



I need to get back into watching that show.

It’s been too long.


Dear lord.

That’s all I can say.
