Not Another New Blog!

Found a new photo upload site called Fotonomy. It's from the guy who invented Fotothing. It's free (for now) and it seems to be pretty much an unlimited upload. It's tidy, easy on the eye, easy to use. Perfrect.

There have been some strange goings on at Fotothing and the site is down at the moment, but I'll still be posting stuff there, as I'm merely a freebie member.

This leads me to something I've been mulling over for some time. Since I ended my photo diary blog Seven Days, I've been thinking of a project to replace it. The Amazing One Man Brake Club is up and running and may well be the successor, though not quite the one I envisaged. What I'd like to be able to do is a sort of group blog. I'd be looking for people to contribute photos, short video clips(no more than 1-2 minutes long) containing anything you want. Short stories, poetry and songs are also welcome. Apparently up to 100 people can be added to any blog as a contributer.

Anyway, just floating it as an idea, see how many of you would be up for this. If the interest shown is low (less than half a dozen people) then I'll put it on the back burner for now.

I just worry about taking on too much and then letting things slide but I would potentially be interested, will it have any sort of theme?

No theme Lism. I'm done with themes. Three ringed circus time. You're correct to identify the notion of not having time to contribute, and to be honest, this is maybe where the whole thing will stand or fall (along with that 'No Theme' thing). I want people to contribute because they want to, not because they feel they have to, having agreed to join (something I've found with all the online ventures I've been involved in). I suppose what I'm saying is, if you take photos/videos/ or write poetry/stories on a regular basis (or all four at once....), then let me know. If you feel that you might struggle to contribute, hang back, wait and see, then join in if/when the idea lifts. Theres plenty room to add folk in later.

It's only an idea just now, but I'm hoping it'll grow legs.

Oh, and cartoonists/artists are welcome to shove their work in as well.
