Okay dork boys, geek girls, funky foto fans and drool suckas, itâ€™s your turn.
I read in the Globe + Mail the other day that blogs are dying. Lots of folks started them
when they were all the rage but soon grew weary of posting. Or, I guess, discovered that
they really had nothing to say.
That article got me thinking. Why did I start drool? What do I have to say?
I started it on a whim. I like the idea that each week can be a little mini project, that I can
throw up out-takes, shots from my archives, random thoughts, shit like that.
Some weeks itâ€™s tough to find a subject. I sit down and jot some stupid thing, or post
some throwaway pix. Later I might find out that someone (or other) thought that that post
was one of my best.
Other times I put my heart + soul into it, think itâ€™s the best post ever, and no one cares.
I had no real aspirations when I started drool, no ambition except to do it and see what happened,
what I came up with. So far Iâ€™m mostly enjoying it. And I think Iâ€™m pleased with the traffic. My
latest stats tell me that get over 150 unique visitors a day and that they stay for 14.02 minutes.
Thatâ€™s the average.
And I think: Who are you?
So, this week Iâ€™m running a contest, trying to find out.
All youâ€™ve got to do to enter is post a comment here containing a few sentences telling me why you check
drool out. What you like and/or what you donâ€™t like. There’s a comment link just under each post’s title.
The winners will be chosen by a random draw.
The first prize is a little framed print. â€œSuper 8, Wooster, Ohio, 2005â€. There are also two runner-up
prizes…..my booklet: IN DREAMLAND.
I think that not everyone checks in to drool every week, so Iâ€™m leaving this contest open until the end of
Fill me in.
