About All of My Blogs
I have several different blogs and websites. I like to write and draw, and other things. I have quite a few interests (mostly of the art, history, literature, non-profit, and creative variety). I like keeping these interests separate ~ or at least, categorized in some way that makes sense to me, and (I hope) to the rest of the world. Each of my blogs and sites has its own personality, so to speak. Sometimes, I want to keep up the persona: kind of like Mark Twain, or just Minnie Pearl. A generic profile just doesn't do, and yet that's what the gurus or dictators of the World Wide Web want to enforce. What they don't realize is that, those of us who aren't, say, Meryl Streep, or Stephen King, or the Queen of England don't have a staff of secretaries and butlers or an entourage of bodyguards and limos to keep the World at large. And our paparazzi aren't the glamorous kind. They're the icky kind, the bums, the drifters, the Viagra sellers of the world. We just don't want to let them in. That's part of my justification for the private Whois listing, the obscure contact information, the buried technical stuff. That, and my natural shyness (blush, blush). A real lady knows when to put her little silk fan in front of her face. For those who (for whatever reason) desperately need to know who writes this stuff, where it's hosted, and all that good stuff, I'll be adding posts and links to update you on my doings. Or, if you've read this far, just scroll down to the bottom of this page and check out my profile. In the meantime, visit my main website ~ the one that started all this: SouthernMuse.com.
