There nothing like a little competition

I’ve been posting almost everything I put on here on Blogcritics lately. Eric Olsen, the founder and nagger of blogcritics has this list of the side bar of top posters. To my surprise, I was on it. I was on the top 20! I had no idea.

WELL, I am not one to lose ground. I started making a huge point of posting on that site. I’m now number 7.

I am very inspired by things like that, measures of how I’m doing.

It’s been fun, just making myself post.

I decided that I should stop worrying about being perfect, and just kick out reviews. I think it’s actually improved my writing. Imagine!

I have also been spending a lot of time reading other people’s entries, and commenting on things.

People comment on my stuff there, too. I get very few comments here, mostly because I get very few visitors here.

What can I say?

But there, I got TOTALLY flamed for my Catch 22 review. Imagine! People can be rude.

And we’ve been having a big ole discussion about the top 100 novels list.

Makes me want to publish more lists.

But it also makes me feel like I have to be careful. I don’t like being flamed. But that’s the risk you take when you put your stuff out there. Not everyone is going to like you.

I still like doing it. It’s worth it to me.
