I already have a blog that I've been doing for awhile now.
I also just started another.
So why this one?
Well, Life(Cycles) is a blog that focuses on bicycles and life (and everything in-between, which can be a lot). SO Bike Blog focuses on the local bicycle culture and family of Southern Oregon (hence the SO)
This blog focuses on Ashland.
Having grown up here, and having experienced almost 20 influential years of life in this town, I have got quite an affinity for the place. Ashland is a rather unique and beautiful spot in the world and many people realize it. The people are usually quite friendly, the lifestyle is slow(er than big cities) in the best of ways, and the surrounding landscape is captivating. There is theatre, outdoor recreation, art, music, food, coffee, a monumentally amazing park, and more.
I want to share Ashland as I have experienced it and as I see it. With BLAH I hope to do that. BLAH also gives my projects for Digital Media Foundations a direction. With the hope of reflecting an aspect of Ashland with each project, I'll have something to work toward that will give meaning and an end goal to my work.
I live in Ashland and attend Southern Oregon University.
One of my courses is Emerging Media (and) Digital Arts, or EMDA.
I get to make a blog for that course.
This is that blog.
I have another blog that I do, which sometimes takes too much time, should I have the time to give.
When I sat down to think of what a new blog should or would or could be, my mind went "BLAH".
And so here it is. BLAH.
Bloggers Love Ashland, Holmes.
More on the what and the why later.
I'm going to be dumping EMDA related work on here in t-minus . . .
