I promised this guy that I would contribute to his book about Southern Bloggers. (By the way--- that's an EXCELLENT post I linked to.) I haven't sent him anything yet. I need to be dragged off and shot.
I'm going to work on that project today. I have two problems to overcome: First, I don't know how to make sense of my archives anymore. This blog has been rebuilt FOUR TIMES since I started it, and the "search" feature doesn't work the way it should. I know I have some pretty good reads in there, but I don't know how to find them without doing a lot of plowing.
Second, I really don't like going back and reading stuff I wrote years ago, or even YESTERDAY for that matter. That's old news and when I DO go back and look at that stuff, I want to re-write it. I always believe that I could make it better, but if I try that idea, I usually fuck up the post because I'm thinking like an editor instead of a writer.
But I'm going to sort through my stuff today and send Adam some links to my archives. I like the book idea, and I want to be a part of it. Hell, if you're a Southern blogger, YOU should contribute, too.
Just send the links to Adam.
