I always feel like there should be some sort of photo element to support each one of my blog entries. The only problem is; some days I just don’t have an image that goes with what I’m writing about. I suppose I could get my camera and snap one of those ubiquitous one-armed blogger self portraits but a little of that goes a long way. Believe me, you don’t want to see my face over and over from my one good side. Perhaps I can post extreme close ups! When writing about the tunnel on highway 80 leading into Old Bisbee, I’ll post a giant picture of my nostril and Photoshop an eighteen wheeler coming out of it.
Since I’m always taking pictures and have a vast collection of images, I’ve decided to post my own photos regardless of weather or not they support my entry. Hell, I’m an artist and photography is my medium (one of them anyway). The whole point of having a blog was to hone my skills as a writer and showcase my creative work. I have to let go of my petty insecurities and there’s no time like the present. Here’s what lies on the road ahead for my blog.
From now on I’m:
Posting my own creative photos if I don’t have one that goes with my story
Not going to worry about the accuracy of my grammar
Going to speak my mind even if it upsets my mother
That’s all. Just a short list I had to get it off my chest.
While writing this post, I noticed Brian of Cheap Blue Guitar added me to his blogroll–that actually sounds kind of like a moniker.
I am Cobban of Lopaka Lounge! Be not afraid. Go forth. Be fruitful and multiply!
Cobban of the Lounge of Lopaka? Lopakaland? Nah…
Thanks Brian of Cheap Blue Guitar ! <<cue the trumpet fanfare>> It’s quite a compliment to have a fellow blogger acknowledge your work on their site. The two people who really got me into blogging Jimbo and Homer have also added me. In turn I have created my own blogroll with these three gentlemen (hopefully there will be more in the future).
