Wanderings

Anything you dream is fiction,
and anything you accomplish is science,
the whole history of mankind is nothing but science fiction.

Story of the Day

SFSignal picked up my Story of the Day site.

In a comment (a tad sarcastic to my ears), they wrote: File under: I Can’t Believe This is the First Time I’ve Seen This: The Science Fiction Story of the Day website which offers free fiction online daily.

If this is truly the first time they’ve seen this, then I think it is a good thing. It means that I am the first to give it a shot. It is hard to tell if they are being serious , though.

In my research into blogging economic models I cam across the idea of a Blog of Blogs. The first practical application was this SF story a day blog. I’ve received a couple of hundred clicks from SFSignal, so now, rather than drop the whole idea, I have to go out and find a bunch more stories (I have them lined up to May 2nd). I think I’ll have to start a little db to keep track of how many times I’ve hit a website or included an author. I want to vary this as much as possible to spread the stories around from the Pro markets to the For-the-love-of markets. So far no suggested stories. I have to see if the web form is actually working.

    Hi Keith,

    Pardon my sarcasm…I just meant that this is the first time I saw your specific site, not realizing that it was still relatively new. I’ve already subscribed to your RSS feed, so I’ll be keeping an eye on all the free, sf goodness. :)

    I might be a day ahead or behind, what being so busy and all lately but was my story Crosshairs the one SFsignal saw or was it the day before? Oh and can I a link to the “Story of the day” and put it in my Reading section on my website?
