Thank you guys, that's very nice of you all i think you are right, I'll take me time getting used to it, but for now I am still unable to keep track of everything
Welcome back, Alexei, you were well missed. I don't think of you as a 'new member'. The place is some changed but basically the same really - just the profile pages and the social clubs are new really. You will get used to it and like it, as I did.
Welcome back to the amiable forum.
Welcome back Alexei. It's nice to have you back.
I tend to agree with you about the posting of work on a dedicated website. That is what I do. The blogs are (for me anyway) social contact and tapping into the the creative stream of consciousness. I have two website currently. the one I am working on is www.davenmagid.com a fun little project.
You appear to have the skill and motivation to do a similiar sort of thing and you might like the idea and get some inspiration from it.
As for the Steppenwolf connection, perfectly understandable, Hesse is the soul of an existentialist. Read Narcissus and Goldman. the similiarity is even more apparent there.
I didn't know what to do with a blog until I started one. It turned out to be a great place to put things that came to mind that I wanted to express, but that weren't salable, nor were they things that would interest any of my friends. Some of what I have blogged, here and elsewhere, are ideas that I may want to use as part of something else, someday. I can put things into a blog, and they will be there a few years later for me to refer to, or revise, or whatever. Blog more, it's good practice for writing in general and for a general audience.
Thank you, kathycf!
I think you can post whatever you like in your blog. It can reflect your personality however you see fit. If you want to put stories or poems, personal thoughts or experiences....all are fine to do, or only one. It is completely your choice.
