Oi! Blog Pondering

I am going through an internal debate about my blog. I cannot decide whether this should be a "diary" sort of thing or whether I would like to turn it more into and anecdote, short storish kinda of place. Now I just kinda put up whatever I feel like...which is fine. Sometimes it’s more composed, while other times just quick and dirty. I’ve just been thinking that I would like an outlet for my WRITING writing, if you know what I mean.

Any stories I publish on here would also have dairy-type qualities. I would still write in a memoir form, not pure fiction or anything (or at least I don’t think so). A place with less ellipses! And I’m not talking about a bunch of flowery language or 3 paragraph descriptions of last night’s sunset. More like my entries regarding the Amusement Park and less like yesterday’s boring weather report and observations about the size of my ass. I have toyed with the idea of yet ANOTHER blog...but I already have (3)...and NO! you can’t see them by looking at my profile. They exist completely independent of each other…well, there are one or two cross-over readers that I trust. One is parent friendly, one is a group of friends who all post and then there is Nacho. And yes, when I am short on material or energy I put up the same posts on different blogs. Lazy perhaps, but efficient, you bet!

Maybe it’s just that I am feeling especially creative today. I was thinking about stuff that has happened in my life and decided to sit and write about it. Reading through it, I’m not sure it fits on this site. Also, I am a closet poet (shut up, stop laughing) and would like a place to put it all down. Can you copyright a blog? Not that anyone would want to steal my stuff...

That's funny, I've been thinking about the same thing. Neither LJ or my blog are really places to put actual writing writing. Have you heard of www.lulu.com? It is an actual press that will print books as they are ordered. You should go check it out. I have one in the works right now.
