Do You Ever Run Out Of Blog Topics To Write About?


black birdfall leaves centerblack bird


Nope, I am never out of topics!


I have a lot of hobbies and lead a very busy life. I get my ideas for topics to write about from my life, my hobbies, my jobs, my family, things I do, places I go, etc. I have 32 different blogs, when I get bored with one I start writing on a different one. I go back and forth between them, because I try to keep each one on it's own topic. Here is a list of the things that inspire me most:

* I am a writer. I write books. I write short stories. I started writing in 1978. I have been writing for a very long time. I have a million and one fictional characters running rampant in my brain, begging, no not begging, demanding I write about them. I write so much so often, that I get a lot of emails asking for advice on how to be a better writer, and thus I currently have 32 Squidoo lenses devoted to helping writers write and publish what they write, all of which started out as posts from my "Writing Blog".

* Comic books. I love comic books. I own more than 7,000 comic books. I collect comic book memorabilia. I collect autographed comic books from my fave comic book authors and artists. I email most of said authors and artists constantly. I am a CosPlayer. I dress up in my daily life as my favorite comic book characters. I am a freelance writer who writes comic book scripts for Danish comic books. Did I mention I love comic books and that my favorite Squidoo lens of all the lenses I have ever made is completely devoted to a comic book character and resulted in nearly 20 other sub-lenses spun off of it, and that all of the content found on those lenses originated off of 4 different blogs of mine?

* M-I-C-K-E-Y-M-O-U-S-E spells Donald Duck! And I'm still loving comic books. I love Disney. I love Disney Ducks. I own one of the world's largest Disney Comic book collections. I have gotten a lot of them autographed. I collect Disney comic books, Disney DVDs, Dinesy picture books, Disney toys, Disney cloths, Disney socks, Disney totebags . . . hell I'm a walking Disney advertisement half the time! LOL! I got A LOT of Disney related Squidoo lenses, and again, those all started out as posts off my blogs.

* Manga. What is Manga you ask? Why it's Japanese comic books of course! uh-uh, even more comic books. You know, I'm seeing a pattern here . . . comic books strike again! Three of my highest ranking Squidoo lenses are devoted to Manga and Anime (cartoons based on Japanese Comic Books), all of which were created using posts off of my CosPlay blog.

* I'm a costumer-fashion designer-Glam-Goth-CosPlayer-Historical Reenactor: big hair, bright colors, fishnets, sparkles, sequins, gowns fit for an 1300's princess from France and elaborate kimonos any Japanese demon would envy, capes, hats, frock coats, all that glitters is better than gold, esp if it's purple. I make all of my cloths myself from drawings I created and patterns I made from scratch, a result of having a seamstress for a mother and taking a two year course in Dressmaking and Fashion Design. I write about CosPlay, fashion, and sewing, often yapping about my projects as I create them.

* I live on a farm. I own and run The Pidgie Fund, a shelter that rescues feral cats and pit-fighter cocks (roosters). My home is currently the home of 13 formally stray no-longer feral cats, and 60+ now tame and peaceful roosters, and one 13 year old dog who loves all his cats and birds. I write about animals as a result.

* I have a garden. Me and my dog and my cats and my birds all spend hours in the shade of my rose bushes and lilacs and hostas and lilies and orchids. I have a few posts about plants and gardening.

* I like to cook. I am a vegetarian. I love Asian food. I love pizza. I have posts on cooking and foods.

* I read books. A lot of books. I read books A LOT. I collect books. I own The Twighlight Manor Library. In The Twighlight Manor Library collection is more than 10,000 books which took me nearly 30 years to acquire. I have library cards at 4 local and one state library. I take out an average of 15 books each week, from EACH of those 5 libraries. When those 5 libraries have book sales, they provide lots of big boxes just for me, because they know I'll be the first one through the door, and I'll buy them out in the first hour of the sale, so long as I can keep packing more books into my dad's car, my mom's car, and my boyfriend's car, and the cars of anyone else I can convince to tag along to help me carry home the hundreds of books I buy each time I go to a library book sale. Yes, I really do buy books at a rate of hundreds a week and by car loads. . . you don't end up with more than 10,000 books by buying one or two books at a time! I love all of my books and I have several posts devoted to them.


* I like music, movies, and video games. I write posts about singers, music, actors, TV shows, movies, and video games.

* I obsess very obsessively over the things I like best in this world and end up with massive collections and lots of lenses about those collections. I have 32 blogs and 264 Squidoo lenses because like everything else in my life, I could not join Blogger or Squidoo without getting obsessed over it.

Everytime anything happens in my life it inspires me to write something about it, so I never run out of ideas, and don't expect I ever will.

Handling possible "spam" comments on your blog.


black birdfall leaves centerblack bird


Handling possible "spam" comments on your blog.

    Since most blogging software allows people to include their blog link with their name, is it "spamming" when they also end their comment with a link to their blog?

    I've been having this happen lately and I've been rejecting the comments.

    My view is that you should comment on the post you've read, fill in your name and URL (which is common), and leave it at that. Adding another link to your comment is little more than self-promotion and it makes it look like you're only commenting to get traffic.

    Agree? Disagree? Thoughts?

    Thanks.


Links that are "True Spam" are indeed spam comments and are booted off my blog before they even have time to settle in the dust. What is "True Spam"? We all know it. We've all seen it. And we get dozens to hundreds of it in our email every single day. They are links to websites, with or without a comment. Most spam comments look something like this:


"get free diet pills by clicking here!"
"hot pictures of hot girls"
"buy my eBook and make millions overnight!"


However:

Links in comments are not always a bad thing!

*THUD*



Oh dear. Half my readers just fainted. I'll sit here and twiddle my thumbs while I wait for them to get over the shock of what I just said . . . oh look! an ice cream sandwich! I'll eat that while I wait.

AL-ERT!-AL-ERT!-THEY-HAVE-A-WOKEN!
EX-TER-MI-NATE!-EX-TER-MI-NATE!-EX-TER-MI-NATE!
KILL-THE-DOC-TOR!
Zaps Dalek with Sonic Screwdriver.

Good! You're awake again! You missed the war between the Daleks and the Time Lords while you were out of it. Let's continue . . .

I know, I just got off ranting about links in comments being spam, but not every link in every comment is spam. Spam is unwanted. Spam is off topic. Spam serves no purpose. Spam helps no one. And here's the shocker: Relevant links are NOT spam!

So what exactly is it I've done here and why do I do it? Simple. The way I see it, people are going to leave links in your comment box, wither you like it or not, that's just the way life is.

Now you have several choices. You can rave and moan and get mad about it and go leave nasty comments on their blog. You can ban them from ever commenting on your blog again(if your blog host has that option). You could just delete them and hope they never post again. . .or

You could do what I do and ASK people to leave links in your comment box. Yes, that's right, I actually tell my readers to go ahead and leave links in my comment box. Why? Well, for one thing, they are going do it anyways. There really is no reason to get mad at them, because all getting mad will accomplish is getting you all stressed out and they will not feel any effect from that, so first off don't get upset. If it's spam, just delete it and move on in a calm rational manner. So if they are going to leave a link anyways, why not do what I do and I ask them to leave an on-topic link?

I shock people when they find out that in many of my blog posts I actually ASK people to leave links. I tell them that this is a topic I'm researching and would like to find other bloggers who are interested in it, and ask them to leave links to either their blog or some site that deals with this topic so that I can add them to my blog's blog roll.

I've found a lot of good forums, sites, and blogs this way, most of which since were added to my blogrolls. Since I have started doing this I get a lot less spam comments too. Seeing that request for on-topic links in comments has just about stopped most off-topic links from being put in comments on my blogs! Less comments for me to approve, but hey, less spam for me to delete as well.


    99% of the comments I receive on my Wordpress blog are spam - and some pretty bad ones at that. So I use Spam-Free and Akismet to filter them out. Of the comments, that I do leave on my blog or have read on other blogs, about 1% add value, the rest are just "nice blog" kind of comments.


ugh! I hate WordPress for the kind of comments it brings! Akismet, grabs up spam comments at a rate of 200 - 300 per day on my WordPress blog! I hate it! It says that in the last year I've gotten some 40,000 comments! But I've only actually approved maybe 20 of them!

I think WordPress just attracts spammers for some reason. I never have problems like that with my Blogger blogs, and not once have I gotten a spam comment on my Blogger blogs either. I can only say that about Blogger though, all the other blog hosts I've tried, I get swamped in spam, often spam that is not even written in English!


    If I am looking for comments, I will usually go to niche forums, where there are active and moderated discussions. Usually comments on blogs don't add to much to the blog itself. Blogs don't seem to be a good means to interact with members - compared to forums such as DigitalPoint, where information sharing is much more active.,


I hear ya there, and second that! My blog posts are generally about one of my hobbies: creative writing, sewing, comic books, etc. So I join forums for those topics and most of mt blog posts get "reposted" there as thread topics. On my blog the same post will get maybe 2 comments, while as a thread on a forum, it'll get a whole flood of comments and I end up chatting up a storm with the other members and making new friends. Forums are great, I love them.


What's your take on this? I'd love to hear what you have to say about this post. Leave a comment and share your views!

Question about blog comments?


black birdfall leaves centerblack bird


Question about blog comments?

    Do you reply to each and every COMMENT made on your blog?

    Just wondering if this is the proper thing to do? or not?

    Your thoughts?

I leave comments on nearly every blog I visit (provided I found a blog post that caught my attention and I felt was interesting enough for me to add my 2c on what the poster was saying), it is quite rare however, that a reply is ever made or questions ever answered. I don't let it bother me that most bloggers do not reply, however, I do question the fact "Did they ever read my comment?" . It is very rare for me to leave a simple "drive bye" comment, most of my comments run into the 200 word range. Last week I wrote a comment that went on for some 600+ words! OMG!

I can explain how my comments get so long though. It's because of the type of posts I tend to comment on. I enjoy seeking out questions to answer, so I actively look for blog posts that ask questions to which I know the answer too.

For example, that 600 word comment I left the other day, was left on a blog post that asked a simple 2 sentence question, about how to do a certain type of sewing. The blogger was sewing a costume and was stuck on a piece and used her blog to ask for help, and I read her question and knew the answer and how to correct the problem she was having, and so I wrote down the detailed instructions which she needed to solve her sewing problem.

Anyways, it is very rare for me to stop by and say a simple "Great post", I'm more likely to say "Great post, I loved what you said about... yadda yadda yadda, for another 100 words."

When I do leave a quick comment, it is usually a "Your welcome" to their "thank you" reply to my comment.

On my own blogs, I don't get too many comments, but I try to reply to them when I do get them, because I think of the comment box ask a forum discussion rather than a comment box.

And this comment that you are reading right now, is a typical example of how long a comment you can expect to see written by me, should I decide to comment on a blog, btw! I feel that if I'm going to leave a comment, it better be a worthy one.



What's your take on this? I'd love to hear what you have to say about this post. Leave a comment and share your views!

Low votes in squidoo should be banned! (PART 2)


black birdfall leaves centerblack bird


A few days ago I wrote this post on my blog:

Low votes in squidoo should be banned!

. If you haven't read it yet, than go back and read it, than come back here and read this post.

Remember what I said in that last post, about how every time one of my lenses gets near the top 100, a whole bunch of my lenses get a 1 star rate all at once? Well, low and behold, it has happened once again! As of this morning, three of my lenses are now bouncing off the top 100 list, and within the last hour, 22 of my lenses have been given 1 star rates!

I don't know about you, but I think Squidoo needs to find out who is doing this and why. It's happening to often to to many lensmasters, to not be a troll.

I remember a while back someone posting on SquidU bragging that they had done this, and I have since found out that that same person also has several different accounts. It looks to me like they are using their multi accounts to attack other members! Such rudeness!

That also makes me question, why would anyone need more than one account with Squidoo anyways?

What's your take on this? I'd love to hear what you have to say about this post. Leave a comment and share your views!

Low votes in squidoo should be banned!


black birdfall leaves centerblack bird


I found this lens on Squidoo: Low votes in Squidoo should be banned! Love it, agree with it, here's my own thoughts on this issue:

If people gave one star ratings because the lens was really bad, than I could understand the one star rates, but so far it looks like people are not using it that way. The way I see the one star rate being used is this:

Every time your lenses hit 100 to 1,000 in lensrank, they get hit by at least one, one star rate, given to you by a member with a lenses that competes with your own, because they are jealous and angry that your lenses and not theirs made it to a high lensrank.

How do I know this is happening? Because I always have 4 or 5 lenses in the top 300 lensrank, and usually about a dozen under 1,000. These lenses and NOT my low ranking lenses are the ones that get the most one star rates! These lenses include my "Lord Sesshomaru Costume" lens and my "Publishing Methods" lens. If you've ever seen those two lenses, than you know what I'm talking about, with the one star rate being misuse. Each of those lenses is huge. One has over 10,000 words on it and the other over 20,000 words on it(the size of a novella!). The longer of the two, took me 70 hours (over a period of 4 weeks) just to write the words alone! After writing these up, each lens took me between 2 to 3 hours to read straight through!

The worst day I ever had, was the day in mid-April when 43 of the top ranking lenses were given one star rates all in the same hour! OMG!

I have never had a time, when just one of my lenses was given a one star rate. No, every time, 3, 4, 10, 20, or more are given one star rates all at once. The fact that so many lenses are given one star rates, in such a short time period, indicates to me that the person giving the rates, didn't even bother to look at the lens, let alone read it. They simply opened it for the sole purpose of giving it a one star rate. That was the reason they opened it, and they never bothered to look and see what it was that they were putting a one star rate one.

If the rating system was being used properly I wouldn't mind it, but when you have 43 lenses given one star rates in a matter of minutes, you know that the rater did not read those lenses. In order to rate that many that quick, they had to open the page, click one star, close the page, open the next page, click one star, close the page... that just makes me want to scream, the fact that anyone would be so mean as to do something like that!

If the lens is really bad, than I don't mind one star rates, because that's what they are there for. However, I don't use them. I don't believe in giving out one star rates, because I am willing to give the lensmaster the benefit of a doubt. You see, I know that it takes a lot more than 10 minutes to create a lens. I know that sometimes you see a lens and it looks skimpy and dumpy, but than a week or so later you see that same lens again and now it's filled out and got loads of stuff on it.

A lensmaster is not on Squidoo 24 hours a day. They have families and jobs and medical emergencies and the real world to deal with. Sometimes they plan on a lens, start it, but than something unexpected happens and they don't get backk online again for a few days or even a few weeks, and so their lens remains unfinished, even though they had planned on doing more on it. On the other hand some lenses just take a couple of weeks to get finished, esp. if it requires a lot of research to study and an essay to write up for it.

All things considering, I prefer not to give any rate at all, to skimpy lenses, because I would feel terrible if I gave it a one star rate today and than a week later see that the lensmaster was not finished and now it looked like a 5 star lens, but I couldn't change my vote.

All that said, I have never left anyone anything other than a 4 star or a 5 star. Wither I like the topic or subject of their lens is not an issue with ratings - that's what the favorites button is for. I look at it and ask myself "How much work did they put into this?".

Who Are You REALLY?


black birdfall leaves centerblack bird


Another question found on CosPlay.com, asked:
    [QUOTE=DarknessSummit] Who are you when ur "not cosplaying"? what kind of person are you, what social group are u, what clothes do u wear, random hobbies, things like that...[/QUOTE]


I am a writer, editor, publisher, artist, doll maker, animal rights activist, costume maker, make-up artist, sale representative, and fashion designer.

I write in the Gothic, Horror, and Science Fiction genres. My works include a horror series, and it's spin-offs. Some of my other writing habits include children's stories, comic books, and the dark retellings of classic folk lore & fairy tales. I am the owner of The Twighlight Manor Press.

I live on a farm, which is the headquarters for The Pidgie Fund, where we take in roosters and feral cats, and other animals in need of a home. I'm currently caring for 70+ roosters and hens, 14 cats, and 1 dog, but the animals here change over time and have in the past included horses, goats, ducks, squirrels, turtles, wild birds, and just about every type of domestic animal you could name.

I also do gardening, both flowers and veggies.

I live on a farm, in the forest, on the beach. I am very in touch with nature. I spend more time with animals and trees than I do with humans. Me and my dog spend hours each week on the beach collecting shells.

In alphabetical order: I like Alan Rickman, Alice Cooper, Alice in Wonderland, anime, birds, candy, Carl Barks, cartoons, cats, C*C*DeVille, Colombo, comic books, CosPlay, Darkwing Duck, David Bowie, Disney, dogs, Don Rosa, Donald Duck, Dr. Who, dvds, eels, Etiole, fashion, Gothic, haunted houses, horror, ice cream, InuYasha, Jack Sparrow, Johnny Depp, Kieth Laumer, manga, movies, NegaDuck, peacocks, pigeons, Lord Sesshomaru, Prof. Snape, Retief, roosters, sci-fi, Scrooge McDuck, Sir Roderic, Star Trek, Tom Baker, Twighlight Manor, Uncle Scrooge, video games, Vincent Price, Willy Wonka, writing, X-Files, Xena, Zorro.

When I go out in public, usually it's to one of the five local libraries, where I practically live. I am a complete and total bookworm, and own a private library with a collection of more than 10,000 books and over 7,000 comic books, and still I end up at the public libraries doing research for my writing, mostly because I just love being in a library surrounded by all those books!

I dream about opening my own Gothic fashion shop; Gothic~Lolita~CosPlay Clothen Store, that has yet to be built. Everything is still in the planning stages.

As for what I wear: I change from CosPlay to Glam to Gothic to Lolita to Punk to Renaissance depending on my current mood. I've been one or the other since the early 1980's, and often a mixture of all at once. Most people who see me call me "Goth", but I don't really think I fit in with the overall Goth look, but whatever. I prefer the term historical reenactor myself.

One of the dangers of being a Goth-CosPlay-type person in an area where no one but you is a Goth-CosPlay-type person, is that every time you set a foot outside, people gawk at you and start asking the silliest stupid dang questions. Like:


Are you promoting a play for the local theater?

Are you on the way to a costume party?

Is there a Renaissance Fair nearby?

Are you a circus clown?

OMG! It's a Harry Potter fan!

Are you a witch?




. . .and my personal favorite:

What the hell planet did you drop off of?!?




yea . . .okay . . . whatever.

So what prompts these non-ending string of questions everywhere I go? My cloths.

CosPlay is my life. I have never been to a Con, but that hasn't stopped me from wearing "costumes", though technically these are not costumes as they are my actual street cloths or garb and therefor I do not call them costumes because I do not think of them as costumes. I do not own any "normal" non-costume "street cloths". What you see me wearing as CosPlay type things IS the way I dress when I'm not CosPlaying, because for me, this is not about "playing". My CosPlay can more correctly be termed as "historical reenactment of fantasy costumes".

My clothen style includes velvet, capes, empire gowns, gowns with trains, burnoose, shawls, runas, fishnet hose, striped stockings, combat boots, velvet, top-hats, long dresses, ruffled frilly skirts, cosplay, Gothic, Lolita, Victorian, Edwardian, velvet, frock coats, Alice in Wonderland, vampire fashions, Medieval fashions, crinolines & petticoats, kimono, ethnic costumes, eyelash-fringe fabric, sequins, beads, glitter, lace, cloaks, ruffles, broomstick skirts, stripes, plaid, poet blouses, peasant dresses, fairy tale princess gowns, faerie outfits, wizard-look stuff, big hats, bright colored hats, ballet flats, platforms, anything that Dracula would love to wear, and also stuff like worn by Jem*, The Holograms, and The Misfits.

Whenever I go out in public, my conversations with strangers sounds something like this:

I was dressing like Jem, before Jem was invented.

I love anything made of velvet!

I don't like pants: won't wear them, won't own them.

I the 1980's I wore min-skirts, but as the years have gone by, my dresses and skirts got longer; today my hems sweep the floor and they often have trains. I have one dress that has 7 yards of fabric on the skirt alone, it can be worn with or without hoops.

No, what I'm wearing is not a costume.

Yes, I dress like this every day, all day long, even around the house, when working in the garden, and when shoveling manure out of the barn. Yes I am a farmer. Yes I do dress like this while doing farm work.

No, I don't own any "normal" clothes.

No, I can't tell you where I bought them, because I didn't buy them, I sewed them.

No, I can't tell you where to buy the pattern, I didn't buy a pattern I made the pattern. I've been sewing since I was 6 years old when I made my first doll. I made my first ball-gown at age 12. At age 16 I graduated from a 2 year course in fashion design & merchandising. I've spent most of my life studying fashion history and the art of recreating historical clothen from the Gothic periods (1300 - 1500 & 1850 - 1930), and those are the clothes I thus wear.

No I already told you this is not a costume, these are my regular cloths, I don't care if you think this is a costume, it is not, please stop asking me if it is.

I don't like people who think I'm wearing a costume even after been told that I am not.

Yes, I know this looks like a Willy Wonka costume, yes, Johnny Depp inspired it. Yes, I do wear a top hat everywhere I go. No, I repeat this is not a costume.

Yes, I REALLY am making a historical reproduction of Lord Sesshomaru's costume, and yes, I do intend to wear it daily as part of my street cloths, fluffy tail, battle armor, and all.

No, I'm not crazy, I just hate that Halloween only comes once a year so now I live every day like it was Halloween.

No, THIS . . . IS . . . NOT . . . A . . . COSTUME . . . I already told you, I always dress like this. I've been dressing like this for the last 20 years. Please stop making me repeat myself.

I have had that conversation so many times now it's burned in my brain.

I think the funniest thing is that I am constantly asked for my ID...."You got to be over 18 . . ." yadda, yadda, yadda

Than I whip out my ID... "Is this real? Wait, you're really THAT old? . . .but . . .but . . your cloths.... I thought you were a teenager! I'm so sorry, I didn't realize... it's just that your cloths... I thought..."

Honey, I haven't been a teenager for 20 years! But thank you for thinking I was one, it's not every day some one my age gets mistaken for a teenager... will, with me it is, but for other folks my age . . .

Well, that's me. And as you can tell, I really like to write . . . a lot! LOL!

Welcome to my writing blog! If you have visited before, than you will notice some changes, namely, that the theme has changed. My long time readers well recognize this theme: Yes, SHIVER is back, and I'm am now working on my pet project once again.

For those asking "What is SHIVER?". SHIVER is my ghost story project that has taken me several years to get written down, but is finally seeing an end in sight. SHIVER is soon to be published by The Twighlight Manor Press and has a planned release date of: October 2009. Watch for it!

NaNoWrimo 2008 is just around the corner and so this blog is rising from the grave to return once again for iit's third year as my official NaNoWriMo blog.
