I like to micro manage. I would be a librarian if I wasn’t a potter. Even more so I want this Blog to be interesting and entertaining. For that to happen it needs to be easy to read. To keep myself on spot and posting about a variety of things I think having some categories to post about will be the ticket. Here they are:
Techno-ology: Info on ceramics- definition, technique, history.
In the studio: Updates on studio work pictures and anecdotes posted up all about the secret life of potters, this one in particular.
Montage: A composition of the inspirations of the week. A purely graphic way of sharing snippets of influences.
Issue: Essay like post on a given topic related to ceramics, craft and art available for commenting on and exploration. Dialog in my ceramics discourse is so important and I am excited for the blogs potential in getting talk on the go.
Question: A one liner I want opinions on. ex) How frequently ought I post things up on the practicalpottery blog?
Artist: Other ceramic work featured, a bit about who else is doing what, links to their pages and work.
Porn: Pots I just can’t get enough of. This suggestion was given by my friend Benji when I asked what would keep him interested in my blog. Oddly enough he hit the nail on the head. Blogs need eye candy- appropriate organismically lush pots will be posted!
For the Foodies: Show recipe I’ve cooked in the week and the picture of person enjoying it with beautiful ceramics.
The Review: This section will be me reviewing a publication, exhibition or article.
Bone of Contention: Some times there are issues. Topics I can’t get off my mind. Things that go around and around with no resolve. Some times there are just fragments of things that I need to get out there. This will be the title they fall under.
Playlist: My thoughts on an Album I have been spinning around and around all week. I love music and it consequently in my potting life. It enhances the studio all the time and therefore me. It is a bit of my life I would like to share. So I will post up an MP3 from the week, links concerning the band, and a personal review of the album.
Any other wants or needs? Please post up what you’d like to have me post up. Some of the categories listed above have been suggestions already. What do you want to read about?
