As I’m sure you can assume, I spend entirely way too much time on the Internet. Not as much as I used to — I basically spent sophomore year of high school to sophomore year of college on forums, LiveJournal, and Yahoo! Messenger — but still a lot. But, hey, I work on a computer; I can’t help but get a little distracted sometimes.
Here’s some stuff I’ve come across/revisited recently.
BONLOOK / I actually just discovered this tonight, but I’m suddenly wishing for a new pair of glasses. These are the kind of glasses I always want to try on but never actually see in stores. Even better, they’re all awesome and affordable (that irresistible combination that draws me to IKEA on the weekend, even though I know better). We’ll see how generous Santa is this year, I guess. I’ll let you know if my relationship with this site gets physical.
PHOTOGRAPHY NOW / As I’ve mentioned, my knowledge of photographers outside the world of weddings is fairly limited. Not intentionally, I just lack the formal education and haven’t taken the initiative to learn more (bad, I know, but I’m still trying to figure out how to simultaneously be a good husband, spend enough time with my family, serve at my church, work a full-time day job, build a photography career, and sleep). One of my professors showed me this site last year, and I’ve repeatedly come back to it to look through its overview collection. Striking imagery, for sure.
30-DAYS-IN-A-ROW BLOGGING CHALLENGE / I came across this challenge via CreativeLive and considered taking it on for all of about 30 seconds, after which I realized how much I value my sanity, at least for the moment, and quickly decided to stick with my M-W-F schedule. That isn’t stopping me from checking in on the participants, though. I’m excited to see the content they manage to produce over 30 consecutive days (I start getting a headache just thinking about it). And, dude, they have to be serious entries. None of that one-poetic-photo stuff I’m overly fond of. Not only that, but there are consequences for being a slacker. It’s like boot camp meets reality TV for creatives.
That’s all for now. I hope you enjoyed that peek into how I waste my time.
