I finally did it. I started a blog. Now I can really be a part of the world. How exciting.
The name of my blog, Mixedblood Messages, comes from a book of the same title by Louis Owens, a Choctaw-Cherokee-Irish author who wrote tribal mysteries/thrillers and literary criticism. This blog, however, will probably have little to do with Louis Owens. I stole his title because a. The only identity I have ever really been comfortable with is mixedblood despite its colonial overtones and b. it sounds good.
I plan to use this cyber-space to write about books, movies, politics and culture. I will try my best not to post cute cat videos or talk about my boyfriend, unless it is really, really important.
Please be nice to me,
