Brillant idea?

I’ve been trying to figure out what to write about in this blog.  The other day, while looking through a bunch of old files, I ran across a journal that I kept for a junior high writing class. I briefly though that it would be interesting to share some of the writing. But after reading some of the initial topics I don’t think that’s going to happen anytime soon.   I do plan to read through the notebook, but for the most part its rather embarrassing.   There might be a few good stories, since the course requirement was to write at least one page a day.   Even now I recall some of those pages as pure BS.  Lets just say that the struggle to be creative and inventive when you’re in 12 or 13 doesn’t inspire much in terms of deep thought. There are topics that would be interesting to pursue, but a lot of random teenage noise.


Flickr just went down while I was getting ready to create my photo post for the past two days.  So far the project in interesting, though there are a few days where I have struggled with what to capture.  I swing between taking a photo of what happened during the day and taking a photo that is interesting.  It’s all in the eye of the beholder.

WordPress Update

Spent the evening updating my WordPress installation.  I had a few moments of worrying, when I navigated to the home page and nothing came up.  Turns out that during the uploading of new files, the old themes were deleted.  Once I logged into the admin side and reassigned a theme, things were back to normal.   Yah!

I’ve another mental note to make:  don’t put blankets and other bedding in the washer after nine on a work night.

Jamie wants big boom

I think of all sorts of witty things to share throughout the day, but when it comes time to set something down to the blog.. Nothing. One of the things I have considered is going back through all the “stories” I wrote in school and sharing them with everyone. Don’t know if that would be entertaining, I’m thinking it might be more embarrassing than anything.

Or.. I need to spend time fixing the template for the site and connect my flickr and picasa web accounts to this blog.

yep, nothing like a big boom to make the whole site a lot more exciting.
