Waiting; Warming Up

I apologize for a quiet past couple of months.  I assure you that Disposable Blog has not come to an end.  However, it seems to be on a Winter Break.  The end of my semester and the holidays have slowed the site/project down just a bit.

If you’ve read the entry before this, Disposable Blog had a whopping 39,000 views in its first year.  That just floors me!  Awesome stats.

2012 will be just as big.  I suspect I’ll be doing some traveling this year, and I’ll be taking cameras with me.  Sure to be some exciting moments ahead for Disposable Blog.

Happy New Year!

2011 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 39,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 14 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Mudslinging: Angel Mounds’ “Get Dirty” 5K

This Saturday, a lot of runners got covered in mud.  The “Get Dirty” 5K took place at Angel Mounds.  Participants dressed up in fun costumes and ran this obstacle-filled race through the woods.  A great time!

Mythbusting: A Clarification of Procedure, Intention, and Vision

It has recently come to my attention that people are misrepresenting and maligning Disposable Blog.  As if this project is dangerous, inappropriate, and controversial.  In fact, Disposable Blog is a positive celebration and visual representation of community and self-expression.   So, let’s bust some myths and illuminate what Disposable Blog is really about!

Myth #1:  I take the pictures.

How silly!  No, I do not take any of the photos on this website.  In fact, you are Disposable Blog.  You control the photos; you make the choices about how to use the camera.  As long as there is nothing adult in the photos, I post everything because I want to represent all of your expression (even if it’s a “rebellious” middle finger).

Myth #2:  Disposable Blog has content that you have to pay to see.

Ha!  Of course not!  Disposable Blog has and always will be free!  Thanks to the generous donations of others, I have received money to fund the project.  There is no hidden content; everything is on here to see and enjoy.

Myth #3:  Disposable Blog is controversial.

This is the one I never, ever imagined would exist.  In fact, it makes me sad to think that a person and the media would manipulate the intentions of this project.  If you review the mission of Disposable Blog, you will see how excited I am about life, community, photography, and self-expression.  Disposable Blog was created from a source of joy and positivity.  Please do not make the naive mistake of thinking Disposable Blog is some controversial project.

All in all, I have loved creating, curating, and presenting Disposable Blog for/to the community.  I have received overwhelming positive support and excited feedback, and I will hold on to that in the face of harassing accusations, misrepresentation, and downright defamation.  I will leave you with my mission statement that I wrote when I first started this project:

All around town (and other cities, too), I am leaving a disposable camera chained to something secure with the instructions to take one photo of whatever you would like. My goal is to document and celebrate all of the incredible people who populate the beautiful places throughout our world. As more and more rolls are developed, this tapestry of people and places will become more colorful, complex, and complete.

Where’s Disposable Blog?

Fans and friends!  I know there hasn’t been a lot of activity recently.  For that I apologize!  I’ve been quite busy recently.  But, have no fear!  A lot is coming up!

Sorry; that was a surplus of exclamation marks.
