OK, kids, here’s the scoop.
I am taking a blogging vacation.
But it’s not really a vacation.
It’s more like–a change of plans.
It’s more like–doing something different for a while.
It’s more like–shaking up the old blogging pattern and trying something new.
For at least a month.
And it’s gonna be hard on me, kids. (OK, maybe it will be a breeze.)
Here’s the New Plan.
I am going to post only photos for the next month or so.
No words, no stories, no exciting adventures, no blah-blah-blah.
Instead, you will supply your own stories to the photos. Make ’em up. OK, don’t make ’em up.
But photos are going to rule this blog for the month of July and scootin’ into August.
Kathy is swearing off words. (And if you believe this one, she’ll tell you another one…)
OK, she’s swearing off words on this blog for a while. Except for captions under the pictures. (And no, she won’t be writing novellas under each photo.) And the headline. Headlines and captions are allowed.
She also won’t be responding to individual comments–although she may respond via email if you have a stunning question which demands a response. Responding to comments would involve words, and too many words are taboo this next month. (That is going to be challenging. Have tried to do this before. Have failed. I like writing essays in response to comments.)
Thank you in advance for all comments.
Hey, if any of you regular commenters would like a commenting break, that’s OK too. You can think your comments in your mind, if you like, instead of typing them beneath the photos. Or you can continue to comment. Just wanted to let you know I won’t be sobbing into my pillow if you decide to take a commenting break, too.
I might post a photo daily. Maybe 19 photos daily (you know, like the 4th of July parade photos–19 pics, can you believe it? Mostly because my WordPress space upgrade expires the first of August and I have to buy more space by then, anyway.) Or I might post a photo a week. No plans in cement except–not too many words. I will not leave you totally in the lurch and post zero photos. No. That is not likely.
Besides, you want to glimpse a little bit of mid-summer in Baraga County, in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, near the shores of Lake Superior from the Little House in the Big Woods, don’t you?
Takin’ a word vacation. Lettin’ the photos do all the work. Not hangin’ around the computer too many minutes in a day…seein’ who has stopped by and who has commented. Nope. I’m outa here. Except for those photos.
Will be talkin’ to you again in August. Until we chit-chat again… Let the Photos speak.
Barry just walks by and I announce–I’m only going to post pictures on the blog for a month.
“You are not,” he replies.
“I am so,” I insist. “Because I just wrote a blog saying so.”
“You better say you’re going to TRY,” he advises.
OK, reader. That’s the scoop. I am going to TRY to just post photos until August 10th.
And that is this blogger’s “vacation”. Smile! (OK, I’ll respond to the comments in THIS blog. Because there are still words. But next blog, we’ll communicate silently, shall we?)
