I have a few blogging quirks. I don’t know if they’re weird… some probably are. But I never claimed to be normal. In fact, I claim the opposite.
My post titles are all lowercase.
Maybe I have an inferiority complex. Okay, yes, I do. But I wasn’t thinking about that when I started this blog. It was a stylistic decision. But I can’t help wondering if it subconsciously means something more. Or maybe I’m just weird.
Many posts a day.
I don’t usually post multiple times a day. Most of the time, I don’t have it in me to do that. But when I do have more to post, I’m hesitant to do multiple posts in the same day anyway. My thinking (which is probably messed up…) is that if I post something new, no one who hasn’t read the previous post will go back and read it. They’ll just skip to the newest one. Is that ridiculous? Maybe it is… because I read all the posts from people I follow who post multiple times a day. It can get overwhelming, but I do my best. Why do I assume my readers won’t do the same? Must be my extreme lack of confidence.
I have saved (and still save) a copy of every post I’ve ever published… from the beginning. They are in Word documents. One for poetry, one for each fiction series, one for weekly perks (remember those?), one for song of the day, etc. I think it’s a side effect of me being a packrat. I can’t bear to throw certain things away. I also download the backup/transfer data file directly from WP every now and then, too. Like, at least once a month. Just in case something goes horribly wrong. I think I might be insanely paranoid.
This one is more of a question…
What do the x’s mean?
To me, and I imagine most others, x’s and o’s are kisses and hugs, respectively. I have been curious, though, for some time, if that is the intended meaning when bloggers end comments with x or xx. Are they kisses? I want to know. And for the record, I’ll take all the kisses I can get. Keep ’em coming. I’ll take the hugs, too, but people tend to write that word out. I guess o or oo at the end of a comment just looks weird. oo
