"Whenever I endured or accomplished some difficult task...such as watching television, going out socially or sleeping...I always look forward to rewarding myself with the small pleasure of getting back to my typewriter and writing something."
This weekend certainly held it's challenges, that was for sure. Elvis didn't want me to sleep, he wanted me to play. When a 30+ pound cat sets his stubborn mind to something, there is no convincing him otherwise. As a result, I am tired...really tired. Hopefully I will be able to get enough rest today (Monday) and Tuesday to be able to go up to Twin Peaks and take photos of the 4th of July fireworks over San Francisco. I look forward to that, but right now, as sore as I am, it's a bit iffy.
So, while I didn't feel like making this a long entry, I did think it would kinda be nice to have a little fun. So, I thought I might share and idea I had today. What if Blogs and Journals had dust jackets, the same as books do. If they did, what might yours say about the author? Hmmmm...now there is a thought. What might mine say? So, with a little bit of fun with my digital camera, I created a self-portrait, then I threw in a little of my sense of humor, and a little bit of my recent past, and here's what I came up with...
"Carly Gordon became a successful citizen journalist by authoring her first journal/blog, "Ellipsis," which she began on AOL in late summer of 2003. Her modest success continues with her second blog, "Ellipsis...Suddenly Carly," after she, along with many of her fellow blog authors, made the exodus from AOL to Blogger following the events of "Black Tuesday." The AOL ad scandal of November, 2005. She is currently working on her first book, a horror story tentatively titled, "Silver Key." Carly currently lives in Berkeley California, with her husband and a cat named Elvis."
LOL. I don't know...maybe if there was such a thing as a dust jacket for blogs and journals, that would be what mine would say. How about you? What would your blogs dust jacket say? If you want to play along, post your entry and come back here and leave me a link so I can see it. I will update this entry so folks can find you. Who knows...maybe it will catch on. :)
Alternately, if you would like to write a review of my blog, "Ellipsis...Suddenly Carly," go for it. Be honest, I can take it. This is your chance to tell it like it is. Feel free to leave your review in the comment thread for this entry. :) Go on...it's ok...I can take it. FRET! LOL. :)
