“Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications, offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution.” Ansel Adams Creating an Orange County Daily Photo Blog has been on my mind for a while. I used to post a daily photo right here on Alive in Wonderland, but it became too difficult to keep […]
"A little nonsense now and then is cherished by the wisest men." Gene Wilder Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Are you a blogger? Do you live in Orange County? Has your family banned phrases like "If you read my blog, you wouldn't have asked me that" or "I'm so blogging this" from leaving your […]
I have started to read a lot of photo blogs lately, especially other Daily Photo blogs. One of my favorites is Auckland Daily Photo. So, I was super happy to be given a “Blogging Best Friend” tag from Lachezar of that very blog. I have always been fascinated by New Zealand–springing from my Split Enz/Neil […]
Being patently bossy–especially when it comes to things I know a little about–I have coaxed not one, not two…fine, four people into starting their own blogs. They are, in order: Marcy at “The Glamorous Life.” Andrea at “Bakers Love.” Carrie at “Splendid Press.” and now, Jenny at “Brain Bunnies.” I have also given my long-winded, […]
My dear friend Marcy over at The Glamourous Life (read in sarcasm here over use of the word “glamourous”) is having a G.I.R.L. party on her blog. G.I.R.L as in Glamourous In Real Life. Bloggers can join in by sending her posts that detail their domestic goofs and blunders or just send embarrassing photos. We […]
Thank you to the outlandishly creative Heather at Bluhm Studios who is busying herself right now with the important work of making my blog look fabulous.
I wrote a “Friday Five” that consisted of five snail jokes. I have a private collection of snail jokes that I tell when I’m asked (which honestly NEVER happens) or I feel the party is in need of a little light snail humor. If you must, you can see the orginal post: Here. Now, I […]
My blog is one year old today. I thought I would celebrate by reposting the very first thing I wrote here. It was email correspondence between me and my friend, Vicki. Everyone should have a friend like her. Thanks for reading me! I am just as bewitched by blogging as I was when I started […]
Awesome discussion addressing an issue close to my heart: journalism and the blogger. Even more exciting, the idea of amateur professionals (Pro-Ams), creative people committed to doing things well and with passion. Leadbeater’s idea of the new organization models sounds like OPPORTUNITY. There are still rules, just new ones.
So, this is the classic blog photo: A shot of the blogger, taken by the blogger in their mirror. Almost every blog has at one time or another sported this picture. My guess is it’s because: A. blogger has been banned from mentioning blog ever again to friends, hence, hindering ability to ask someone to […]
