A year ago I didn’t feel like blogging very much. Further photo blog methodology analysis followed. I was happy with my photos, but needed a break from the online photography world. Then more digging into the why blog question. I wrote a post that generated a lot of reactions. Then I gave myself permission to shoot more and write less. The existential questions didn’t stop, but I felt better.
On December 10th, 2008 a kitty cat epiphany occurred that explains everything about posting content to the Internet in two words: DATS ME!!!!
This has nothing to do with Lacan’s mirror phase. Or maybe everything. I’m not sure. Previously I thought this quote from Jonathan Lethem’s You Don’t Love Me Yet was a succinct explanation of the why blog question: “”I want what we all want,” said Carl. “To move certain parts of the interior of myself into the exterior world, to see if they can be embraced.”" But really, the cat said it best.
