My Side of the Story

There's been a lot of commotion over at Acidman's blog....He's picked up the torch that Dax lit with his "Put up or Shut up" post...Acidman is holding a contest to see if we can guess which post isn't his...It is a lot of fun...

However, I just wanted to do a quick post to explain my comments that I gave to Dax at the Jawjuh Blogmeet...which, it seems, has gotten this a bit tangled...

I read my entire blogroll everyday...but, I've only been doing this for a few months, so, there are still a LOT of blogs that I am slowly finding and enjoying. The three first people on my list of "must read everyday", were Acidman, Velociman, and Dax...These three have hugely different styles, and I like them all. They all have a sense of humor, hugely different backgrounds, and a wealth of life experiences that are individual to themselves. They write differently as a result. Anyone who reads those three blogs should be able to identify their "styles" when they are writing as themselves.

Now, it seems that this idea of "identifying a style" has morphed into a "can you copy my style"...it certainly makes you examine their writing in a different light...I guess Imitation is truly the greatest form of flattery....

Nooooo!!!

Not the intent.

HUMBLING the man was the intent.
He was sure that a lowly, young, new, female blogger could come nowhere near his caliber of writing. SURE of this, his ego was.
He LAUGHED at the idea.

"You don't want to go up against the TALL DOG," he said.

This solidified my determination. Don't tell me I can't do something.

I got rebel blood in me.

Key fooled me. She's better than I thought she was. Or maybe I'm not that difficult to imitate. I dunno. She's got me all confused.
