word... I am at a loss of words
more images than words...
the Gwadzilla Blog has gone through a massive evolution...
in its inception the blog was TEXT... entirely text
images were a pay option
and paying to blog seemed foolish
I took the plunge
images were added... without a fee
BLOGGER waived the fee
they were having some system issues and hooked me up
then the blog went through an unintentional unguided evolution
the topics changing with the seasons
during mountain bike or cyclcross seasons I would blog on those topics
then during other parts of the year... I would bitch about traffic
I would work and rework ideas... then I lost a passion for preaching
there were some rants that seemed spot on...
my Toyota Landcruiser was the first ZIP CAR
I thought I was Robin Hood... but I turned out to be Boyz in the Hood
things I had to say about trying to ride my bike on MacArthur Blvd rang true with many bicycle commuters and cyclists for sport
but... I did not feel like I was doing anything but preaching to the choir... which has its merits
but... in the end I was writing ideas for cyclists to entertain themselves as they sipped their coffee
I had rants on COMMON SENSE and COMMON COURTESY
as we live in this litigious society
when really.... the law should be secondary to basic respect for others
if car drivers were respecting pedestrians and cyclists... there would be no need to revise laws and make all sorts of adaptations to the road
Common Sense and Common Courtesy
but no.... Google Analytics had me seeing how short the visits were
thoughts like SEXY of SLUTTY drew big hits
BEAVER SHOT WAS A WINNER!
even if it was not what people were looking for
it got their attention
I introduced the world to Liz Hatch, Kerry Litka, and Jill Homer
and of course Yehuda Moon
there was no growth in the interest in Gwadzilla
I shared information and inspiration
but for what?
sure I get some pleasure from it
but other times it seems vacant
ironically... reader growth killed my voice
being accountable... being traceable... being visible
these things killed my willingness to speak freely
if you ever see a photo you like... share it with a friend
if you see a post you like... share it with the friend
if you win the lottery... share it with me!
