NMH: International Pixel-Stained Technopeasant Day

When I think about posts for this series, I go looking for "what happened that sounds interesting." Sometimes, as luck would have it, I find Days that I don't celebrate, but I probably should.

Do I count as a webscab? As a lower quality writer who is guilty of contributing to the over-saturation of written work on the internet?

I hope not.

I know my writing quality isn't on par with some of the names that float to the surface of your mind when you think of "favorite writers," but I do know that there are some pretty horrific compositions out there (some of them frighteningly close to home) that pale in comparison to mine.

International Pixel-Stained Technopeasant Day (henceforth referred to as IPST) was conceived by Jo Walton, a name that unfortunately invokes no recognition from me, for established, "quality" writers to better establish themselves and their work on the internet, shared freely without seeking payment, to help reduce the saturation of "bad writing."
