I want to build a little web between my blog and others. The adage claims that I’m known by the company I keep, so I’m going to be fairly picky about which blogs I link to.
Do you write about something that other people are afraid to think about? Are you rough around the edges? I want to read your stuff and link to you.
I encountered a wonderful blog here on wordpress, for instance, called “Confessions of a Forum Troll,” which is about identity politics. The owner and I have a forum in common, and I’m not sure if we get along, yet, but I like what I’ve been reading from her.
And please don’t ask me how this relates to fiction. It does. Characters are based on real people, and the best fiction is based on something real.
