Meet Doc Z or Doc Zayden
I don’t know where he gets the time to juggle his work as a physician, chase his creative muse and spice up the comment section of this blog with his impish wit and good humor. I have a good feeling I can leave the reins of this blog to him and take a vacation. He’s that good a friend and writer.
Here are my favorite poems from his creative collection:
Among his short fiction Insanity Road is my favorite. The protagonist’s name is Jan who drives a car and has an Ipod and has a healthy appetite to dominate the world – nope, I made that up. It strikes me as true creative work because all of it has nothing to do with me. A creative leap of faith! I also love the O. Henry twist of the story’s ending.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez book for Doc Z
For his contribution in making this blog come alive, I’m giving him a book by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. You can take your pick, Doc Z: Will it be One Hundred Years of Solitude? Or Chronicle of a Death Foretold. Kindly send me your mailing address so I can send this first thing in the morning.
Q and A with Doc Z
What does blog commenting mean to you?
It means getting in touch with the blogger – sharing thoughts, emotions and what-nots. There are different types of comments such as appreciation, criticisms, and greetings. I would prefer to have a diversity of comments on my posts. But as you know most of my posts are poems so I encourage the reader to pour out his/her emotions about what he/she reads.
Any wonderful blog commenting experience?
Not exactly sure that it’s an anecdote, but Jena Isle keeps telling me to keep my feet planted on the ground. Humility. I plan on sticking to that.
What do you remember most – and why is it important to you?
The above lesson is important because it reminds me where I come from. The horizon is brighter and more promising if you know where you come from. Well, that’s just me.
Have you had an argument with any blog author?
I can’t exactly say that I had a clash with my fellow writer. No blogger has done that – not to my face anyway. Maybe, but I haven’t known about it. I can’t say that I directly clashed with anyone.
Do you have a funny story about blog commenting?
Something that made me laugh? Well, it was Roy and Holly. Roy said, Doc Z you can write about anything. Then Holly said, Doc Z, if Roy is right, I challenge you to write an ode to a roadkill.
Update on Top Commentator Award
This sucks, I know, but the top commentator award will be until the end of June only. As I said previously, I’d be saving up for the upkeep of this blog. I intend to keep this blog going for as long as I possibly can. I need to watch every centavo. If, however, a manna from heaven or from anywhere falls on my lap I’d be happy to share it with you. That’s a promise.
Over to you, guys. Tell us your blog commenting stories. Are you getting some headway in your blog commenting strategy? Pissed off any blog author lately? Discovered a kindred soul in your blog hopping trips?
