I want to expand my blog in 2017. More readers, more posts. More things.
Most of the time, that’s a back-burner thought. Ideas go fluttering in and out of my head, and to be honest… that’s probably a good thing. Some of my best ideas really stink.
The range of ideas is phenomenal. Some of them are incredibly humble. Gee, I bet I could find another hashtag on Twitter. And some of them border on the grandiose. You know what would be cool? StoryTime Youtube videos. And with a little creative computer editing. We could make them look like all the authors are in the same cafe. And uhm… maybe the authors could all be penguins.
Well… I lack the skills to edit people into the same cafe, and I lack the compromising photographs to make them dress up as penguins.
I think Youtube channel.
Doesn’t that involve cameras? And what would I camera at, anyway? Me, sitting in front of a computer, typing things? Me building a computer? Reupholstering that chair I’m in love with?
And then comes the children’s show… but for grownups idea.
And the children’s show for actual children idea. I think I could recognize a child, if someone showed me a picture. Maybe. But I could dress up as a fairy.
I think podcast.
Isn’t that just you talking to yourself for an hour? I could do that. I could read stories, and tap dance, or something. Somebody would want to listen to that.
What? I wasn’t paying attention.
I really might do more of my art. Painting. Drawing. ATCs (Artist’s Trading Cards, if people still do that) seem like a good mixer. Photography. I could finally build the atl atl of my dreams, and make the whole world watch.
Atl Atl? Oh. It’s a kind of spear-throwing device. Like lacrosse, but with pointier projectiles. Get your mind out of the gutter.
I’m still batting ideas around. Still looking for the right add-in to give the site flavor and style.
