Janey Loree: Who is Kilroy? Tell us more about Fear And Loathing - The Gonzo Papers!

Kilroy: Kilroy is an evolving character; an explorer, spiritualist, consultant, writer and photographer.

Fear And Loathing - The Gonzo Papers is meant to be a vehicle that pays tribute to the spirit of Hunter S. Thompson. In the Gonzo spirit, distinctions between the author and subject are blurred. There is a merging of fiction and nonfiction.

Fear And Loathing - The Gonzo Papers examines the human condition; that which lurks in the shadows is explored; questions are asked and a point of view is taken without apology.

It should be noted that the author accepts no responsibility for spontaneous anger, personal outrage, blurred vision, headaches or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder experienced by visitors.

One final point, I regularly publish my original photography. The photographs rarely have anything to do with the narrative. I do hope that people enjoy the images; or at least that they inspire thought.

Janey Loree: What prompted you to start blogging in the first place?

Kilroy: I spent a week at Cape Cod with TheSpecialOne. It was good for me to step away from having work be omnipresent. I had time to contemplate my life and consider the need to gain a greater sense of balance. Blogging was something about which I had knowledge; it was an opportunity that up to that point I did not pursue. Shortly after returning from the trip I decided it was time to begin.

Janey Loree: When do you do your blog reading?

Kilroy: I don't have a specific time that I do anything, other than filing my taxes by April 15th. Unless I file an extension. 8-D

Janey Loree: Where did you hear about BLOG VILLAGE?

Kilroy: Reviewing sites to include in my "A Hitchhiker's Guide To The Blogosphere" series, I am always finding different things posted in sidebars. I'm sure it was one of the ones I chose to investigate.

Janey Loree: Why did you name your blog "Fear And Loathsome – The Gonzo Papers"?

Kilroy: When you mention Hunter S. Thompson, invariably, the first thing people think of is his book "Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas". Fear And Loathing is a phrase The Good Doctor frequently used. My "first" blog Fear And Loathing In The Blogosphere was lost in some sort of inescapable Blogger archive hell. I used the name of one of his books when I recreated the original blog and moved forward.

Janey Loree: How often do you post and how many blogs do you maintain?

Kilroy: The first year I only posted about 100 times exactly. I was disappointed with that. It was, though, the best I could do given a certain circumstances.

Right after my blogiversary I started exploring Pay Per Post. I have published about 80 posts over the last month. About 40 of them are sponsored by Pay Per Post advertisers. It has worked out well in that it is virtually seamless with what I had already been writing.

Fear And Loathing - The Gonzo Papers is in the Pay Per Post Affiliate Program. If anyone is interested in testing the program, I would appreciate them signing on through my site,

Janey Loree: Which BLOG VILLAGER would you recommend for the next interview?

Kilroy: I referred a blogger to you; one who is a personal friend and a professional associate. So, it seems only logical I would refer you to The Lives And Times... of Anthony McCune.

To conclude, I'd like to thank you for your interest in Fear And Loathing - The Gonzo Papers.

One last thing I feel is important to say. I believe blogging is an excellent educational forum. It's not possible to learn, though, if your viewpoint is the only one you see. I am interested in what input other Blog Villagers have to offer. Whether it is in agreement or not; I'd like to encourage an exchange of ideas because it's helpful to us all.

Janey Loree: In the near future, you will be reading interviews by Kilroy. Not only does Kilroy have a way with words, he is proactive in the blogging arena. Drop by his blog to inquire about The Gonzo B$ Carnival.

Sift through his posts to enjoy all his photography, lithographs, and renderings and let him know that he needs to start another “Headline Naming Contest”…

Thank you Janey and Rosemary.

I enjoyed the interview; again I appreciate your interest in The Gonzo Papers.

I look forward to joining The Blog Village interview team and contributing to the success of the group.

A quick note, registration for the first Gonzo Carnival - this particular one for blogs listed on Blog Shares - closes Saturday night. It would be great to see Blog Village well represented.

I'm sure our Villagers will find what you have to say interesting, Kilroy. As for your Blog Carnival, I entered posts from two of my blogs. I do hope other BLOG VILLAGERS have entered, as well.

You are most welcome, Kilroy. Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions.

Say DB...When are we going to have a BLOG VILLAGE Carnival? I have not listed with Blog Shares yet, so I missed out on Kilroy's Blog Carnival.
