BBBC #5 - The End

This is the last topic for the Big Bad Blogger Challenge. Thanks to Alicia Chenaux for sponsoring the event.
If this is your first BBBC... What did you get out of your experience? Do you think it will change the way you blog in the future?
One thing I learned about blogging from the BBBC is that any initial topic can provide a spark to ignite the creative process. A meaningful dimension will emerge through the process of writing (or creating a graphic), even if there's nothing evident at the start.

I also noticed that blogging from a topic I didn't select involved an inner negotiation between the commitment to be responsive to the intended subject, while still being true to the sometimes barely related direction it inspired. It was a very interesting experience.

As for the future, although I've long worshipped the blank virtual page, I've never tried picking a random topic as a starting point. I will likely play around with that method from time to time.

Thanks to those who accompanied me on this week-long walk through the unknown. Your regular programming will resume on Monday.

You've been programming us?!? I knew it ... (puts the tin foil hat back on firmly) ;-)

Oh Grace, that's not the meaning of programming I was referring to. Or was it? (evil laughter)
