The Professor: Yeah. It's going to be a photo blog. I call it "Mosquito Vision."
IIP: A photo blog?
The Professor: Yep. I'll mostly use it to display my recent work, but I'll also be able to include funny captions to create clever photo essays and stuff. I want it to be more than just a gallery.
IIP: So it's going to have a specific theme, instead of wandering aimlessly from topic to topic like some blogs I know?
The Professor: Yeah.
IIP: Didn't you already try that?
The Professor: Kind of.
IIP: What happened to those blogs?
The Professor: Well, they're still out there. Technically.
IIP: So why is this new one going to work when the others didn't?
The Professor: Well, this one is going to be specifically associated with my photo business, so I imagine there will be more consistent opportunity for updates and such. Plus I can't display all my pictures on my business site, and I want them to get more exposure than just sticking them on my Facebook page, so a photo blog seemed like a nice compromise.
IIP: That's marvelous. I'm sure you're going to be a striking success.
The Professor: Thank you.
IIP: Really. I mean, someone as talented and good-looking as you are...well, how could you possibly lose?
The Professor: Are you being sarcastic?
IIP: You tell me. You're the one trying to pimp a new blog in the third person.
The Professor: True. Then I guess you're not being sarcastic.
IIP: Whatever. Anything else you want to tell us about the blog?
The Professor: Well, it's a work in progress, so it will probably evolve a bit over time. I've been busy with a lot of stuff lately, so it's not exactly where I want it yet, but I figured it was probably best to just get it out there and let it grow organically.
IIP: This isn't just an excuse to put off grading final portfolios, is it?
The Professor: Not entirely.
IIP: You've been posting to this blog a lot more frequently in recent weeks. Are you just trying to avoid your real-life responsibilities?
The Professor: Yes.
IIP: Maybe you should get back to them, then. Final thoughts?
The Professor: Go check out the new blog. Comment. Be a follower. Achieve Nirvana.
