I'm in the mood for something a little different this week, and I've decided to put my usual smart ass shenanigans aside.............for now. I'm curious to know what was the first thing you ever posted to the blogosphere? Whether it was an oh so serious critique of the latest art house film or a list of your favorite flicks starring Steve Guttenberg, you had to start somewhere. I liken my first post to the wall of shame every adult person dreads their friends and significant others seeing. You know what I'm talking about. The wall at your parents house adorned with photographic evidence of just how awkward and dorky looking you were growing up. Bad haircuts, missing teeth, and questionable fashion are front and center on the wall of shame.
The Welby Wall of Shame
I think it's a fair comparison because we've most likely all evolved as writers during our blogging journey, and there's probably some older material that we'd just prefer to keep buried in the deep dark corners of the web. Bring your first post back from the shameful dead with me and and ponder these three questions. I'll start.
- What was your first post about?
- How do you feel about it looking back?
- How have you evolved as a writer?
1.) My first substantial movie post was a review of one of my favorite haunted house films. 2.) I'm my own worst critic as we all are, and I don't exactly look back fondly on it when I read it now. 3.) I found out that I enjoyed poking fun at films and the industry more than simply posting reviews and news.
Who's got next?
