Blog Update and Blog Type

Apologies to those who've come to this blog looking for new content. The day job is picking up quite a pace and the resulting tiredness at night has not been conducive for good, thought-provoking essays on crime fiction. Plus, there is the general writing funk, as described in this previous post. I will be returning tomorrow with a Forgotten Book, as part of Patti Abbott's Forgotten Book Friday.

--->One of the things I'm very excited about (as a reader and a writer) is David Cranmer's new online e-zine, Beat to a Pulp. It looks like a fun place, especially since other online e-zines are folding. I'll be submitting some material over there in the coming weeks. Y'all go on over and check it out.

--->In the meantime, I found this site: Typealyzer. It's an interesting site that analyzes a blog and delivers its take. Turns out, this blog is The Thinker. Here is the text:
The logical and analytical type. They are especially attuned to difficult creative and intellectual challenges and always look for something more complex to dig into. They are great at finding subtle connections between things and imagine far-reaching implications.

They enjoy working with complex things using a lot of concepts and imaginative models of reality. Since they are not very good at seeing and understanding the needs of other people, they might come across as arrogant, impatient and insensitive to people that need some time to understand what they are talking about.
The wife's going to laugh pretty hard when I tell her my blog is "logical" and "analytical," two things I'm not when living at the house. I do not agree with the "...not good at seeing and understanding the needs of other people" comment as that is one trait I do have when not writing. Interesting.

So, fellow bloggers, take the test and see how your blogs rate.

Scott, Thanks a lot for the mention. Stories have already started flowing in and I'm quite impressed with the quality... I'm looking forward to your submission.

My blog came up as the following:

The Mechanics
[ISTP]
The independent and problem-solving type. They are especially attuned to the demands of the moment are masters of responding to challenges that arise spontaneously. They generally prefer to think things out for themselves and often avoid inter-personal conflicts.

The Mechanics enjoy working together with other independent and highly skilled people and often like seek fun and action both in their work and personal life. They enjoy adventure and risk such as in driving race cars or working as policemen and firefighters.
