Does This Make Me a Real Writer?

Recently, I was advised to build my own website and secure a domain with my name. I was told all "real writers" should do this. Naturally, I was skeptical, but after much Googling and a poll of my trusted advisers (read: three best friends from college, of whom I can hardly buy a pair of jeans without consulting) I decided to take the plunge and build a professional website. Ta-da! I hope to fill the Home Page with musings about writing, both professionally and personally, and what it's like to be in an esteemed, small town Masters of Fine Arts Program. I'll probably sneak in a few casual blog posts, too, just to spice things up!
