I logged in yesterday to find that one out of seven visitors to this blog ever had shown up to see the Jane Austen-bashing post. That’s a bit like thinking you’ve written Hairy Pooter and the Pisser of Asscanbam and then receiving Ms. Rowling’s actual sales figures in the mail. Whoa.
Which is to say, I’m delighted to welcome all of you finding your way here from the Reddit link. I hope you’ll poke around, find a few other things you like, come back again soon, and maybe even subscribe.
Hi all, I’ll be experimenting with some different WordPress themes over the next few days. Feel free to let me know which you like or don’t. Thanks!
I’m Karsten Piper, and I’m glad you found my new blog.
Literodditi, like its name, will be a sneakily seductive mishmash of literate oddities and/or odd literati. If you like words, their use and abuse; if you’re a precieuse (or her spouse) and enthuse without pause; if you never confuse the abstruse with the muse; if you think a book is a funhouse, a whorehouse, a taphouse, or lighthouse; then this blog’s right in your wheelhouse. And if, somehow, you already know you want to see more, I encourage you to keep up with the blog on Facebook, using RSS, or via email. Check the sidebar for all the links.
(Also, some of you may know me from my old blog, A Poetry Feed, where I read poems aloud and posted recordings of them. That was tremendous fun, but more than once I lost my head of steam, and eventually I couldn’t keep it up. The archives will stay up at apoetryfeed.wordpress.com, and I may add recordings again sometime. When I do, you can bet I’ll link to them here.)
