Does having airships in a story automatically categorize it as steampunk?

I hope not. I’ve got nothing against steampunk. Personally, I think it’s an awesome genre. I love the idea of smashing Victorian style together with crazy levels of steam-powered technology. However, I think it’s a little bit too anachronistic for the setting I’m creating. I may pull bits and pieces of things from some of the steampunk-y world, though. I dunno. Something about goggles and sundials and compasses really appeals to me. Plus, as I mentioned before, airships. “Hello, airplanes? This is blimps. You win.”
