Last Tuesday at my radio show, I was talking to the monitors L and C, student workers who handle all of the technical aspects of the Rodent Hour, such as "are we broadcasting?" "can you actually hear us?" and "we have a band, make it so everyone can hear them." In other words, they do most of the actual work. I mostly just talk, tweet and blog.
C and I follow each other on Tumblr, so we were chatting about our various social media projects. L asked me, "You have a blog?"
"Many of them," I replied, "for the Rodent Hour and for myself."
I was confused. "Why what?"
"Why do you have a blog? What do you write about?"
C and I looked at each other. Then we looked back at L.
"That's the most foolish question I've ever heard," I said.
And the topic was closed.
I reviewed Kurt Vonnegut's "Slaughterhouse-Five" over at my book blog, by the way.
