So I finally sat down and gave you guys an about page. This I hope will reflect where I want this blog to head, and thus, helping you decided if it’s the blog you’ve been looking for; as it is the blog I was. I will be beginning my projects soon but first I will be doing a few blogs on finding things to develop your ideas from, because the world is so full of stuff to use! It’s not just about where but how to look. I will be doing this in a few parts so it’s not overwhelming and than picking one for myself to start with. From community events to your local learning hubs, there is no excuse to not find something that gets your brain firing!
Today Cherice, Kaiza and I Collaborated on a monster Creature drawing. The game is played by folding the paper into three sections, each artist getting one to draw either the head, torso or legs. You are not aloud to see what the other artist is drawing, only a couple guide lines that follow through onto your part of the paper in order to position your body area correctly. Once complete, the creature is revealed to all. This technique turns out some bizzare and absurd characters.
Give it a go! you never know what you might create!
I know the rules to good blogging, I’ve read through more material on the subject than is necessary to start. So why am I using none of it!
Worst rule brake: consistency. You have to enjoy what you are doing. I love blogging, but there is something getting in my way… wordpress.com. It doesn’t matter how much you enjoy something, if the instrument is crappy you’re not going to want to play it! There needs to be a warning on this hosting site that it is NOT wordpress.org and that there is such a huge difference!
I discovered all this when I wanted to begin customizing my site, I know what I want, it will involve plug-ins and eventually when I develop this skill set java and cute little things that will make my blog feel like my cave and most of all I want to learn how to turn this in to a career!
However, there are no plug-ins here, no room for customize unless you have loads of cash to throw away and no chance of monetization or anything remotely commerce like!
So i’ll be moving to “.org” but to do this I need a new host, here’s where I ran into a snag. I know the host company I want, my brother and his team are building it! but it’s not quite ready. You may be asking, “Why risk a hatchling host site built by your brother in the basement if you seem to ‘think’ you’re blog might eventually take off?” or “That’s a fast track to error 509” (I’m assuming 509 is too much traffic for the server to handle and not just running out of your monthly hosting bandwidth… fucked if I really know)
I have two big reasons. second one first, it’s not being built like it sounds. The team are professional, motivated and I have hope they will take over the world which leads me to the first and BIGGEST reason I’ve chosen to wait and show patience… I can’t tell you. It’s actually, relatively, temporarily a secret. Ha!
But don’t worry, as soon as I get given the thumbs up I’ll be pushing and helping to market it like a MO’FO because it is the coolest thing! So you’ll be the first to know, my one and only subscriber whom I think may possibly be me. Look at you! 😉
