I am a book blogger. I am not a book blogger. OK, OK, I AM!
Okay already, I, Bryan G. Robinson of the blog Still Unfinished, AM a book blogger! I am NOT ONLY a book blogger, but I am still a book blogger. It wasn't always that way.
When I began blogging in October 2005, I was chronicling my journey toward a marathon by the time I was 40. I was 37 at the time and I completed a 25 mile trail hike in 2007. Over the next few years, I had a number of blogs, ranging in subjects from running to books to spirituality to humor, including one with all four subjects.
Last year, I started the blog, Still Unfinished, the name being a take-off from the name of my previous blog, an unfinished person (in this unfinished universe), with the first part of the title being the online persona I went by, Unfinished Person. That title and moniker came from a quote by George Sheehan: " 'We live in an open universe,' said William James, 'in which uncertainty, choice, hypothesis, novelties and possibilities are natural.' But if the universe is unfinished, so are we. Each one of us is, in fact, an open universe. Each one of us is a microcosm of uncertainty, choice, hypothesis, novelties and possibilities. Each one of us is an unfinished person in this unfinished universe. And each one of us feels an infinite and mysterious obligation to complete ourselves and somehow contribute to the completion of the universe." and since my life is still incomplete, I decided to keep the name.
When I do blog about books, I mostly blog about crime fiction or mysteries, but veer into YA and other genres from time to time.
On that previous blog, I kept track of my physical, mental and spiritual life, which included books. My blog is now at Still Unfinished, since my life is still incomplete. There, I primarily keep track of what I'm reading, what I'm watching, what I'm listening to, and what I'm photographing. On my Facebook profile, which is public, I chronicle my personal life; on my Google Plus profile, my reading life; and on Twitter and on listography, my reading and movie-watching life. Oh, since this is for Book Bloggers International, I guess I should mention from where I'm blogging: Pennsyltucky, i.e. northern Pennsylvania in the U.S. of A. We're not all backwards here, we just walk and talk that way. That's why we believe in backward masking.
