*whew* I officially made it to the one-year mark for this blog. I thought reaching this point would be a lot harder than it was.
Life is often that way. We put off something we dread, and then when we finally buckle down to do it, we wonder why we feared it so much. (Note to self: Remember that lesson.)
I thought it would be hard to think of blog topics, but I have hundreds of ideas for potential posts. I thought my blog would be me talking to myself, and yet I have all of you. *hugs you all* It’s actually been a great experience.
Now if only I could pause time so this blog didn’t take away from my writing time. *smile* One of you get to work on that for me, okay?
If I seem scattered in this post, blame today’s topic: Interviewing myself through the use of Google search terms. These are all search terms that have brought people to my blog over the past year. Talk about random…
Google: can authors get multiple personality disorder?
Me: No, authors can’t “get” multiple personality disorder because it’s not contagious. Now, can they start off that way? That’s an entirely different question. *grin*
G: i am addicted to buying free books on kindle.
Me: Aren’t we all?
G: writers are insane.
Me: Yes we are. Your point?
G: should i get me stories published or self publish?
Me: Neither. You should learn the craft and proper grammar first.
G: what kind jami a situation this now?
Me: Uh… I have no idea.
G: introvert don’t even use twitter
Me: *shocked face* Don’t even use Twitter? *writes prescription for Twitter*
G: what does happily ever after mean?
Me: Happily ever after means you choose to be happy every single day. Other people have worse situations than we do and are still happy. We can be too.
(Sometimes Google is deep. *pats Google on head*)
G: why characters have flaws?
Me: Characters have flaws because otherwise we would hate them. We look for things to pick on when we see a Photoshopped picture of a model. We relate to others’ flaws and quirks, not their flawlessness. Besides, perfection doesn’t exist. (And I say that as a perfectionist.)
G: do you have sex with your muse?
Me: That’s a rather personal question there, Google. And I know I’ve stated my muse is male and I joke about being insane and all, but even I know that would be impossible.
(Muse, are you blushing?)
G: muse pervert shower writer
Me: I had to include this one because it’s my favorite search term for my blog—ever. Especially because I completely deserve it. *snicker*
(Too bad, Muse. Deal. You’ve got a reputation now. *Muse glares at me*)
And now, the part you’ve all really been waiting for…the winners from my Milestone Contest!
