    Do you think fame and fortune will follow?  Perhaps you crave existence or non-existence.

    I'll tell you flat out I can hardly keep up with a good diary as it is, what with promising personal snark and giving out hugs and kisses and all.

    Well then do it, just do it.  Be a great writer, post 1500 words (with illustrations) every day for months.  Step up in a time of crisis and volunteer to do some heavy lifting.

    Or maybe you'd rather be Jerome.  Heck, he even posted a diary sharing the secrets of his success here in the FAQ.  You could look it up.

    Or start e Pluribus Media, or code up your own scoop and start a blog or six.
