Photoblog

The Head Lemur pointed to photoblogs.org, an index site for listing and finding photoblogs on the web. And I said to myself, “Say, you have a photoblog, don’t you?” Why, yes I do. So I listed Sammy’s Photoblog on there for people to find.

Sammy’s site didn’t start out as a photoblog. If you look at the first few posts, you can see I intended to actually talk about life with Sam and the experience of going through the C-section and everything after. But that didn’t quite work out. Either I found it wasn’t that easy to put things into words, or, more commonly, he took up so much time that I never was able to write. So one day I posted just a picture with a few words, and that was it. I was hooked. This was such an easy way to update the page, why would I ever do anything else? Just choose a picture, crop and resize it, upload it, and copy and paste yesterday’s HTML into a new post. None of that pesky thinking or writing that seems to take so long.

And so, slowly, a photoblog was born. And it seems that’s what visitors are really after anyway. They don’t want me to go off on Zen and the art of changing diapers, they just want a picture of the little tyke. So, a photoblog it is.
