Comments: Blogging In Search Of a Theme

Hmm, a theme. Well, if you really want a secondary theme to your primary one of "commenting on current events," I'd still go with literature, something you've discussed in the past. How about "strange literature-related story of the day" or somesuch?

It's tough not being pigeonholed, isn't it? We never get voted for best-anything in the Koufaxes, I'm not considered a comics blog by Journalista because I talk about other stuff than comics, so many people want blogs to be Just One Subject Or They Don't Count! Ah well, we essentially do it mostly for ourselves, don't we?, so we don't really need to please anyone else...

Nah, I don't have time to search out specialized sites every day. :) I spend too much time blogging already.

I don't imagine I'll ever be nominated for awards, and it doesn't really bother me. I do bounce all over the place but that's how my brain works.

Anyhow, I think those awards are for people who "specialize" in deep thought or something. (I've never really looked at them.) It's a pity they don't nominate you for your comics posts, though. I'd vote for you, not that I know anything on the subject.
