Yes I suppose they would.
I was really giving my opinion of what I would deem to be "publishing" and "published" if it were ever to happen to me. I would like to think LitKicks is a form of published work i.e. including my own but alas I know better. For me to ever consider myself a writer or to ever consider anything I've done as published I think it would either need to have generated revenue or it would need to appear in some other medium other than the net.
Does that make sense ?
