it ain’t easy playing god

What could possibly keep me away from this blog for over a month? I love this blog, and I had so much to say when I started it. Where has that gone?

In a word, formspring. I know, I know, what would I, a grown-ass woman, be doing hanging out in a place most frequented by persons of the high school persuasion, where a typical Q/A might go: “Q: is josh a cutie? A: such a cutie.”? Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

But since I scored the username ‘god’ there, such interesting things have happened. I get between 5 – 15 questions per day, some silly, some obscene, and some amazingly thought-provoking and deserving of my best efforts in answering them. I have also entertained my share of theist trolls, and I must say it’s both exhilarating and annoying — the former probably due to my appreciation for the latter, which is another story entirely.

But I get questions that go far beyond religion and philosophy — I’ve answered questions about self-confidence, self-harm, and getting boys to notice you like them. I’m like the Dear Abby of blasphemous reptilian internet personas.

And I like it. I like it so very, very much.

So, this weekend, I shall endeavor to find a way to auto-post formspring to this blog. Not on the main page, but there will be a tab, possibly linking to a page that includes a Blogger feed (formspring will auto-post to Blogger, but not to WordPress, alas).

I still have a lot to blog about, but since a blog is an outlet for accumulated mental energy, I haven’t had much buildup of late.
