Margarite Elaine, whose real name is apparently not Margarite Elaine, tagged Kristopher Dukes, whose real name is Kristopher Dukes, to play Q&A.
What’s the story behind the name of your blog?
My dot-com began as an online portfolio for my writing in high school, and my legal name is Kristopher Dukes.
Why did you start blogging in the first place?
I wanted to cut out the middle man between readers and me. Also, it was illogical that fetching Splenda-laced lattes for some devil in Frada for a few years would make me a better writer than actually just writing. So I skipped paying my so-called dues and dove into self-publishing.
What’s your best blogging experience? Your worst?
My best? I love chatting with readers, who send me dirty instant messages. I like that I spend my nine-to-nine in lingerie, writing.
My worst? Readers send me dirty instant messages. And I’m often in my PJs all day.
What do you think will happen to your blog in 2008?
Give me a week or so — Kristopher Dukes the dot-com and Kristopher Dukes the girl are stripping down to what I love to do, to what is my motor and food and reason for living.
No, not speaking in the third person, or venti green tea soy lattes from Starbucks.
More pure writing. Stay tuned.
Now it’s my turn to tag some bloggers, but I’m handing that over to you lovelies. Leave a comment and a link to the blogs of whomever you want to answer these questions.
