Liebster Award

Liebster Award Chain Letter

I received a chain letter (perhaps better known as a Liebster Award) from scorpionglow which prompted me to answer ten questions, and then pass on to five lucky people the pleasure of responding to ten of my questions.

Thanks, Lisa, this song‘s for you.

Now, my answers.

1. What is your favorite fruit?

Apples because they make delicious pie, juice, and alcohol.

2. Why have you chosen to blog?

I chose to blog so I could say bad things about people where I know no one would see it. Well, that, and to get my name as a writer out there.

3. What is your favorite genre in which to read?

Science fiction and fantasy covers a whole lot of stuff, but that’s what I’m sticking with. Of course, some of my favorite works of literature don’t involve sci-fi or fantasy (e.g., A Farewell to Arms, All Quiet on the Western Front).

4. What is your favorite social media platform?

I’m going to say WordPress so the WordPress people will be less likely to shut down my blog.

5. Hometown?

Minas Ithil before it was overrun by the forces of Mordor and they put up this frickin’ gate. Jerks.

The Black Gate

6. Are you drinking enough water each day? Continue reading

I’d like to thank the 362 people I’ve tricked into following me, 2 or 3 of whom who may actually enjoy my posts. Also, I’d like to preemptively thank all my future followers so I won’t have to bother with that it later.

Thanks!

Now, I’d like to commemorate this auspicious day with a short list of crap I’ve learned since I started blogging.

1. Blogging is addicting! WordPress really utilized flow theory and addiction with notifications on likes, follows, comments, and their little milestones. Those evil geniuses.

2. A post that’s basically a link to an Adventure Time video on Youtube will get you no likes, comments, or followers. Yeah, you need to actually create some original content or make some sort of commentary. Earn those clicks. Continue reading
