We've got fan clubs and followers (hubpages,squidoo, twitter, et al).
We use creative talent to craft our (sometimes eagerly awaited) new release.
Occasionally some trash a forum thread like it's a hotel room.
Are you a content creating rockstar?
We would be. Except for one litte thing - the real-world rockstars also have fans online, their materials i.e music online, and still have forums where people trash talk and obsess over them. Not much of a difference with the advent of the Internet, huh.
I don't mind that sort of title except I don't want tossed panties or boxers k lol
OH Yes we ROCK........
I love the bit about hotel bedrooms, you kinda know when to give a couple of hubba's space, you see them slipping in and out of each others forums.... it is kinda cute...
I think writers are writers and not rockstars:) Rockstars are rockstars! anyway, from my point of view it's much better to be a writer than a rockstar:)
I second that. I wouldn't wanna end up blowing my brains out or ODing at age 28.
but it would be more fun (and lucrative) to be a rock star like Mick Jaggar (who has managed to live to be an "aging" and yet very wealthy rock star) than it is to be me. (I wonder if Mick Jagger has secretly found his real calling by being a Hubber. ).
If you say "ROCKSTARS OF THE ONLINE WORLD", then I would yes they are but they should be very good writers.
Darkside - I'm not so sure we're Rockstars as Mockstars.
Though I do believe we tick all the required Rockstar boxes. With a few extra ones belonging of or to writer folks.
Yes. We're Mockstars.
I'd like some groupies. All I have outside my door right now are a bunch of workers and giant, yellow, pieces of equipment - installing a sewer system on my street. The house is definitely rockin', though.
Darkside - I'm a Sockstar. I am you know. I'm not really frogdropping ... I'm someone else too
I think "rockstar" is one category. There are the divas and the drama queens, too!
plenty of drama queens, that's what is good about it eh????
That would be a hit I'm sure.
Because the rumour is that I am you. Or is it that you are me.
I'm not offended Darkside. You're spiffing.
But I would be if I was you ... because I'm not.
*wanders off to find fierycj to write, produce and direct: Darkside - Is There A Frog Within?. The Sockumentary*
Only slightly. Some randon half assed comment. I either read it or someone actually said it to me. I forget which.
Don't worry Darkside. No one really thinks that. You're Darkside. And I'm well ... I'm not. You're openly intellectual for one. And I'm openly nuts. And I doubt very much that you live in Lisbon.
I dont think you'd look too good wearing one of my skirts either.
Personally, I feel more like the person who practices in the garage until the neighbors call the police and who MIGHT get a few gigs at local bars now and then. I suppose I'd really be slightly higher on the ladder since I do make a living at it, but not much higher.
Yes, I think writers are the rock stars of the online world in that, just as in music, it's placement and exposure that really define your success. While good writers are more likely to rise, it's not necessarily only good ones that make it to the top, and many who are good enough to be at the top don't make it there.
