Banner day

It's a banner day at Dizgraceland. I've decided that this week's theme will be: NO IMAGES OF TIM PHOTOSHOPPED ON ANYTHING WEEK. I'm sure this will disappoint people like THE Michael.


That doesn't mean I won't be including images with my blog entries. I'm just giving my poor old face (and your eyes) a rest. It's not that I love my face so much that I feel compelled to put it on everything. It just happens to be the one image I own and won't run into legal or emotional conflicts if I use it randomly.

Besides, it's time I got back to writing more and stopped relying on cheap graphic tricks to get attention.

I suppose I was getting a bit carried away with graphics and ignoring my roots as a highly trained writer. I wasn't always a burned out blogger with a Photoshop fetish, you know. There was a time that I had a dream of writing the great American novel. I was going to change the world.

But hey, life happens. I'm not bitter about it. Oh, maybe I can get a bit sensitive about the fact that I never even get my blog listed on Blogger.com's blogs of note pages. And it can get discouraging to discover that someone's blog about cheese gets more hits than mine. I'm good with that. I don't need attention to feel validated.

Sorry about the banners. I'm not sure where they came from, but they seem a bit hostile. Regardless, I promise you a fun filled week without my face (other than on the title banner of Dizgraceland)
