I thought it would be cool to design a little donkey wearing a college sweatshirt or sweater for the logo. Turns out it doesn't matter weather it's a sweatshirt or a sweater because my drawing looks like a pig, not a donkey. Moving on.

While the handbag people are a tad overzealous, they are at least focused. A lot of the other blogs will say something like "Hi, my name is Karen and I love Jesus and Knitting" and then go on to randomly start the middle of a conversation, which is peppered with photos of nothing related to the conversation. You can't really tell if "Karen" is talking to someone she knows (on the order of family update kind of blog) or she's talking to the world at large. I picture "Karen" with a lot of cats.
Amateur photography blogs are pretty big also. I will cut to the chase here and just spell out what we all already know. With relatively little exception, no one is interested in someone else's scenery photographs. Even if they are well composed and perfectly lit. If you are reading this and you are someone with a photography blog, I of course don't mean you. Your photos are lovely and I was very moved.
Of course, there were lots of fun blogs that were interesting and had cool features. I am hoping to work in that direction. I am amazed at the number of people who actually know what they are doing. I am a little worried that one of those people is going to find their way over to my blog and leave a little "eye rolling" clip art under the comment section. Keep your fingers crossed for me that none of the cool kids find me and try to stuff me in a locker.
