Does this mean I'm not an ectoer?

There is no such thing as a blogger:
there is no such thing as blogging. There is no such thing as a blogger. Blogging is just writing -- writing using a particularly efficient type of publishing technology. Even though I tend to first use Microsoft Word on the way to being published, I am not, say, a Worder or Wordder. It’s just software, people! The underlying creative/media function remains exactly the same.
That's why TfK is described in all outgoing email as "an online journal of science, politics and policy, focussing on issues in and around Kansas."

Of course, everyone just calls it a blog anyway.
