I notice that a lot of my favorite bloggers use the days of the week to spotlight things on their blog. I've always thought that was a really clever, but could never come up with something that a lot of other people aren't doing.
I really have to stop for a moment, and thank Ms. Steph Cortes (aka @nerdJERK on Twitter) for this brilliant idea.
I tweeted yesterday about feeling a little blue about a book I was reading. The book isn't sad. However, the sad part was I bought the book used, and it looks like no one has ever read it before me. I know that's something stupid to be sad about. Seems like I was feeling a wee bit emo. I think Steph recognized that, and said I should document the moment by photographing the book at my feet, wearing a pair of Doc Martens while listening to The Cure.
The result was this picture:
She said she couldn't believe I had the perfect emo package, and felt it was something I should blog about. After joking about what other photos I can take to capture my emo moments, it really hit me that this would be an awesome idea to continue.
So, there it is. Emo Wednesdays. Mostly, I'm going to be poking fun at myself, how emo and overly emo I can be. This isn't meant to offend anyone, so apologies in advance if you're among the offended. If I do cross the line, don't hesitate to let me know.
Also, Going to attempt to incorporate some emo crafts - whatever those may be ;)
May even ask some of you to guest post !
Until next time,
