Messy Chocolate Merriment
So, I was chatting with Dave last night about this blog. This seems to be a week of insecurity (yuck! yuck! yuck!) and I was asking him what he thought about all this online hullabalou. Which....is not something really to bring up during a week of insecurity. But he had a suggestion.
He thought that my pictures and words should MATCH!!
What? So, as a kindergarten teacher I would teach that basic skill to my little readers at the beginning of the year. "If it is a picture of messy chocolate merriment, then it would probably SAY 'messy chocolate merriment'". Most of them could figure that out with me telling them, but there would be the inevitable lightbulbs dimly coming to life over just enough kids to make the lesson worth going over. "ooohhhhh!"
But here? hmmmm.....
I read a lot of crafty blogs. I love them. But, I love the pics of their stuff. I don't need to read, "first I creamed the butter and the sugar". So, I guess I think if I were just writing about crafty-coolness and not about life in general it would be a dry boring read. Unless I tried to stretch some analogies. "Life is like being star-shaped shortbread and then you get smeared with chocolate" which sounds like a nice life to me.
So, I thought I would ask my readers.
What do you think?
The options are:
a) pictures and words should match
b) pictures and words should sometimes match
c) words should at least mention pictures breifly for context purposes
d) pictures and words should never match
e) Robyn, you are so cool. I feel insecure too sometimes and should admit that more.
Have your votes in before tomorrow's post!
the pictures and words might not match.
