Another day, another blog. I’m pretty sure it’s time for an APRIL BLOGGING CHALLENGE.
Blogging BFF Lee proposed an idea I think I want to try. I’m assuming she still wants to do it, but I can’t be sure.
The challenge idea is about IMAGES. This is really mostly going to be a challenge for me, as I’m wont to go weeks without posting a picture, illustration, video, or other item of visual interest. Other bloggers like Lee take beautiful pictures and draw compelling illustrations on their iPads. I suck at doing these things, but I’m determined to improve.
I think the rules will be that you have to blog most days and post an image each day? Is that right??
I really want to do well in the challenge. I have a persistent need for success, praise, and encouragement. This is a flaw, but it’s a flaw I’ve embraced.
I tried joining one of these challenges a bit back, and I got my ass handed to me; I don’t think I made more than about a week. And since it’s, what, April 6 today, I’ve already lost this one.
But I think I’m going to try it anyway. That image up there is of notorious Egyptian ex-strongman Mubarak, and he is part of a series of posters for a campus Middle Eastern Studies association.
I’m gonna win one of these one of these days.
