    What To Do When Two Blogs Aren't Enough

    Some of us are just hooked on pimping ourselves. I'm not proud of it. Once a person gets tens of readers, the adulation becomes addicting.

    "But Frank," I hear you moan, "you already have two fine blogs which tens of people read. Well, one of them gets tens of readers. The other one is pretty dead, to tell you the truth."

    Sheesh, everybody around here is a critic.

    Anyway, since I got my new camera and lenses, I decided to start a photo blog. Post #1 is hot off the Interweb press. I hope some of you folks will take a peek at Canon Fodder.

    (Now to tweak my sig, so I can pimp it with every post.) :)

    Godblessya' Diane. You're a peach. :)

    And although I'm quite certain you meant "vicariously," I love the word you chose instead. Many folks would agree that living through me would be precarious indeed. ;)

    Actually I used it deliberately.. My life right now is simply at my computer and anything outside of it is danger and wonder filled!

    What to do when two blogs aren't enough? Is this a trick question? What to do is to latch onto the concept that there are so many blogs out there that it's become a pretty useless device unless there's a hook to it that keeps people coming in droves. "I've got a book/I've got pretty much a normal life/I can blow off steam with the best of them" don't cut it.

    I don't think I've ever read any blogs. Trying to remember. Nope. Not one.

    Is there some sort of central index of blogs?

    I've stumbled on a few, but that's because I googled a word or something. I may have bookmarked a couple of them.

    But leslee asks a good question. IS there a central index?

    I really enjoyed those photos, Frank. Once upon a time, I had an awesome camera with a zoom lens. Do you do your own developing? I have a hard time just staying up with the two message forums I post on, but I'll take a look at your blogs. I go wherever my interest leads me. I'll definitely peek in on your canon fodder periodically. Good stuff!

    Thanks, Cheryl. Nowadays, "developing" is done on the computer and yes, I do it. I spent a couple of years in the early 80s working in a darkroom. My cousin and I started a photgraphic restoration business -- touching up and copying old photos on to archival quality paper. We did some work for museums and all the B&W developing for the local photography shops. (They were focused on colour developing.) We also did some printing of coloured slides, a difficult process in the day.

    Anyway, I was avid photographer in the late 70s and throughout the 80s, owning a couple of decent 35mm SLRs. By the early 90s I had to give it up. Simply couldn't afford it. So, it's a real pleasure to finally own a great camera again and some fine lenses. And the developing aspect is virtually free today, once you have the software installed on your computer.

    There's still lots to learn but I'm enjoying the heck out of it. :)
