Considering I’m finding very little time lately to blog about anything, I’m trying to wrap my head around why I’m even considering starting another blog. I suspect I’m attracted to the simplicity of certain blogs and how posting just one photo can say so much or just enough (see Through My Eyes).

Check out the shooting star on the left...I didn't catch that until AFTER I saw it on the computer.
So, here I am, surfing through Blogspot, trying to come up with something catchy and everything and anything catchy has already been caught. The kicker is all those witty, cute, short & sweet titles I’m coming up with were grabbed up about 5 to 10 years ago and nothing was ever posted to them. OK, so if you consider “This is a test” an actual post, I guess you can say that it’s a blog. Really?! Really?! Ugh!
All I want to do is grab a title that will grab people and invite them to look at some photos. My goal is to take a look back in the archives, pick out some photos I like and see how things have progressed (or not) over the course of time, note how it was shot, and invite critiques. But, up to this point, I’ve yet to grab that title.
So, until I can come up with something that has not been snapped up or until I can get creative and make up a word (see Besoterio), I will hope that one of you bloggers out there who had all these great creative intentions to start a blog and dump the idea before it got off the ground, delete your short-lived endeavor so that another can seize that snappy title and put it to good use. And, maybe, in the meantime, when I’m at a loss for words and time, I will start posting just one photo and see how it goes. It’s often said that simple is best.
