The Bashful Blogger

Ok, am slowly getting my head around this whole ‘blogging’ concept. If you’d asked me what Blogging was a couple of months ago, I’d have had images of some cave-man type dude hitting another cave-man type dude over the head with a wooden club (hmm anyone else get that or is it just me?). But being a bit more of an 'internet' chick these days, I asked Google, "What is blogging?" and Google told me "it is the act of writing in one's blog. To blog something is to write about something in one's blog. This usually involves linking to something the author finds interesting on the internet." Ahhh so it's all perfectly clear to me now!

I’m also slowly, shyly, tippy-toeing my way into some online communities… they can be a little intimidating for the first timer!! There are hundreds, sometimes thousands of people on a forum at any given time, communicating with each other. If you’ve got something to say, and I mean anything, it seems you’re bound to find a forum with a very willing membership who are more than ready to listen to you, praise you, bag the shit out of you or simply give you a whole new perspective on things.
I decided to ask some experts – members of art and photography forums - what they think of Pascoe Pop Art portraits. Geez, it’s like turning up to the first day at a new school… the fear of rejection… wanting to make the right impression right from the word go… knowing, just KNOWING, that the “Yeah I’m cool, I know what I’m doing” appearance you’re trying so hard to maintain is going to inevitably come crashing and burning down…

This was the first response I got:

“Yeah they’re not really that great. I definitely wouldn’t want one of them on my wall.”
Ouch, so not a good start! Thankfully, some more comments came through later that were far more encouraging. Extremely encouraging in fact. Phew, made me feel a little better about cracking into the scene... though it's a big, bad world in there! I've got a long way to go, but I'm pretty happy with how much I've learnt so far...
