i personally don't consider myself published because i have a blog & a couple of stories up on my website. honestly, i don't even really consider my chapbook as something that makes me a so-called published author... it was more of a summer project i came up with when i was drunk. that's not to say that i don't like my chapbook or my website (pink floyd album cover design aside)... i guess maybe i'm stuck in a more conventional way of thinking about being published; that someone else has to see value in what i write & put it in a book & sell it.
but the thing that's cool about web publishing actually is that any hack with an internet connection can say anything. i don't know if i'd consider it publishing per se... i don't know.
