The Blog As A Visual Chronicle

"Visual Chronicles" has been used before, as a title for various art books and publications, but I like to think of my blog as my visual chronicle. So, I like to record pictures of stuff I've made, such as the seed-beaded starfish and beach glass pendant here. I only got one picture, and it's kind of fuzzy, but since I posted the beginning of the project here, I wanted to wrap it up properly.
The other way I keep a visual record is not only by posting my photos on Flickr, the photo-sharing site, but also by making Moo cards every now and then of my photos. Moo is a service found on Flickr, and for $19.99 you can get 100 different 1" x 3" (approx) photo cards of your work with your contact info on the back. You can also get stickers, albums, labels and much more. But I like the Moo cards best. This is my third set of 100. I posted some others on my Blythe blog.

Visual Chronicle is a perfect title for blogging - I guess that is exactly what we are doing... both for ourselves and for our friends in blogland!

HI Gina!
I wish we could have our blogs printed out in book form. I also wish I could have a book of all the pics I've marked as faves on flickr!
I keep meaning to check out the moo cards and have some made.. I should do it right now before american idol comes on!
have a great night!

I'm totally with you on the visual chronicling thing - I think blogs are great visual journals.

I love how you called your blog a visual chronicle!!! I sure wish you could have joined us at the retreat but we will try to organize one yearly!
