Sunday Stealing: The Pretentious Blogging Meme 2



You can play here.

Missed the first part of this meme, but I'll leap on for the second:

12. How many drafts of potential blog posts do you have right now?

Twelve, including this one, though a lot of them are unfinished past posts that could be deleted.

13. In what medium do you draft your posts?

I just type them into Blogger.

14. How often do you completely scratch or delete drafts or blog post ideas?

Not that often, usually when I won't have time to finish them.

15. If you had to leave your blog in your will to another blogger, who would you choose?

I'd probably leave it to no one, since that way the output rate wouldn't change that much.

16. Are there other blogs that you feel are similar to yours in content, style, or voice?

No, I find most people's blog's unique and different from each other, which is another reason I wouldn't leave my blog to anyone.

17. Has anything surprised you since you started blogging?

Yes, the fact that people read it.

18. What are your goals or plans for your blog going forward?

I like to keep it pretty directionless.

19. Do you make any money from your blog?

No, it's a loss-making blog.

20. What blogging system do you use?

Blogger.

21. How did you come up your blog name?

I came up with a list of potential names, then got rid of all the ones that had already been taken, then the catchy ones, and this is what I was left with.

22. How many blogs do you have? What was your peak?

I've really only got this one (I've got another one relating to a novel I wrote that I've yet to post to, plus a hidden one my girlfriend started that I really need to post to sometime). That's as peaky as I've ever got.

23. Are you having as much fun as when you started?

About the same, though these days I'm doing way more blog reading than blog writing.

24. Where do you find other bloggers like you?

By checking out blogs.

25. What’s your one wish when it comes to blogging?

That I had more time to do it.

I've always liked your blog name and glad that this is what you were left with. Aren't all blogs loss-making? Well maybe not some. But most are just for us to communicate I suppose. Good answers :) Have a great Sunday

Thanks for the comments.

Jodi - Like your blog name too. There's a lot to be said for spontaneity.

I Am Harriet, Thom - Blogs may be loss-making, but they're also rewarding, plus they give me lots of free entertainment, so I'm saving money in that sense, so I'm sure I'm at least breaking even overall.

Can you imagine making money on this? I can't believe I even have readers. Happy Sunday...

I love your blog name, especially since I can now put my carpets to good use. :)
