I’ve been flirting around with the idea of a photo blog for quite some time. I’ve had a tumblr account since the birth of Could I Have Been because I briefly considered using that platform for this blog.
Most recently, I realized I take a lot of photos of my food. So I uploaded all of my food photos from my iPhone and thought maybe it would become a What Derek Eats blog. I was never that excited by the idea but it made sense at the time because I had so many photos already. After I set it all up, a week went by with no more activity and I started to realize this was going to be a flop. Back to the drawing board.
I don’t know what triggered the idea of taking and posting a photo everyday of Booger and me, but I was most likely influenced by a few things I had seen on TV recently including a 20/20 story about the guy Noah, who took a photo of himself everyday for a six years and made a video which went crazy viral.
Hopefully this new project doesn’t come off too narcissistic. 🙂 (Booger and I admit we are pretty attractive.) It’s more personal than this blog, and I am not planning to enable commenting. I don’t really want feedback because I don’t want to start taking pictures in attempt to get more comments. I think it will be a fun photo diary to have and keep, and will be especially special in 20 years when Booger is prancing through doggy heaven with Lassie and Toto.
