Blogger, Be Good.

Blogger extraordinaire Lynn Viehl has a great post up today on her blog, Paperback Writer. It's about ways to stay interested in your blog. She says, "Blogging is a labor of writing love..."

But here's the thing: I love to write, but I don't like to write about me. That's why I write fiction.

Viehl advises bloggers to reinvigorate their blogs by reviewing their favorite and least favorite posts. That snippet proved much more useful. All of my favorites, the Not-a-Reviews, the discussions of / rants about genre conventions, and the omphaloskeptic examinations of the writing process are only tangentially about me. My least favorite are all about me.

Note to self: write less about yourself. D'oh!

In the future: Less me; more everything else.
