Color me inspired by Chica. She has one of my favorite Photoblogs out there these days. Earlier this week she shot some Kiwi to focus on the brown texture of the fuzzy outside of the kiwi. The photo is really stunning. I was thinking of what sort of food I could photograph that had a distinctive texture and settled on Oreos. Allison had me pick up some cookies yesterday and when I think of cookies I think of Oreos even though I shouldn’t have them. But they taste so good. Well, these were photographed and not eaten, by me. I did another one with a different focus. Which one do you like more?
I have been having some awesome success with Entrecard lately and people have really been responding to this blog. I also keep dropping 300 cards a day. Today I redesigned my Entrecard and spent over 3000ec to have it advertised on many blogs. I wanted something completely different so as to catch people’s eyes. One of my most eye catching photos was of the Cake Plow from PostieCon. Take the way back machine and read my post “Ted Murphy Gave Me PinkEye!” for the full story and video.
I wanted to play upon the fact that I am mostly quiet, reserved and mature. But there is also a fun wacky side to me, too. I also wanted to put that with the latest catch phrase that we have been using around our house and that is … “Really?” (Listen to the Utterz to get the story on that one). Here is the new Entrecard.
Now you might disagree with my changing my Entrecard and messing around with my branding. That is okay. One of my top droppers even said that Pepsi doesn’t change their logo overnight. Well, I am flattered by being compared to Pepsi but I look at it this way, the new card is eye catching and kinda funny. People who have been clicking the old one might be getting sick of it so they may not click on it anymore. However by the looks of things people have been clicking on my card often. Here is a thumbnail of a screen shot I took this evening. I am almost in the top 10 most popular blogs. That is nuts. I plan on making some changes on a regular basis to keep my card fresh. I’ll always have the BenSpark name on it to tie things together, sometimes it will be my fun side, sometimes my serious photography side. It will remain fresh and new. Maybe not the best strategy for branding but each one could catch some fresh faces looking towards this blog. And once they get here, the content needs to be good enough to keep folks coming back. I hope that my photos do that for you. Thanks for visiting.
Oh yea one last thing. I listened to the archived show of Mr. Fab’s Karaoke Duets episode. If you have sensitive ears and are easily offended don’t listen. But if you want to hear some folks having a very good time demolishing duets then you should check it out. That Fab is a funny, funny man. I laughed, I cried, it was better than Cats. (My Apologies to Peter for that line.)
Utterz added a great new feature today. Check out this video about the new feature.
