So I guess the reason why I'm so bitchy about things is because I have this blog, at which I could/can publish whatever I like without editing it, but I still submit things to other websites. So I publish things at The Rumpus, at Thought Catalog, at The Good Men Project, at The Nervous Breakdown, etc. But it doesn't feel like BLOGGING to me, or even PUBLISHING, even though it is, essentially, the same thing. I don't know why I feel this way. Why am I sending things to other "magazines" when I could just publish them myself? I guess there's some air of legitimacy with an editor saying that whatever I wrote is worthy of publication. But don't I have enough confidence in myself? Don't I inherently believe that whatever I wrote is worthy of being seen either print or digital publication? Perhaps that's hubris. Whatever. Another whiskey!
