I've been VERY sick for the last week. I'd wanted to post 1-2 a week, or at least ONCE a week, but this virus has taken a ton out of me, including robbing me of my voice yet again. I will also be home by myself as I'm not able to travel the 3+ hours each way like we normally do (plus one family member is going through chemo and I don't want them to even SNIFF what I have.) It sucks but I'll deal. Perhaps that time alone will help me truly rest, and not get all antsy that I'm not doing something productive.
Anyway, I am up over 50 followers now, and even though a fraction contribute with comments, I am very content. I want this blog to grow organically and it is doing just that. Viewing TG captions as more than just spank material is what I am trying to accomplish. Sure it turns people on, but I like going further than just the shiny alluring surface. Its the mindframe of the creator, how that creator adapts the story to the recipient, the pictures chosen and why, what part should be focused on, plot development, etc ... that all leaves me curious and made me ask if others felt the same way.
I guess that is why I love "bootleg" recordings of musician "scratch tracks", live versions, and unfinished demo / unreleased recordings. Even recording acts I'm not a big fan of. There is a bootleg album from the Beatles, and its about 50 minutes of Strawberry Fields Forever. Starting at the acoustic demo and from there, it gets fleshed out to the full version. I am not even a fan of that song, but I can listen and see the levels being added and appreciate the vision as its coming from the collective heads to the recording tapes. Sometimes, I'll get some unreleased songs from a band I do like and say, "why didn't they release THAT on the CD instead of
This is how I feel about this blog, and I'm glad that we've got 50+ people on board. I've noticed that some people are detailing more of their creative process when posting captions to their sites. BRAVO! I can only see the caption from my own perspective, to add the creators (and recipients) take on the same caption makes me understand everything better.
DISCUSSION QUESTION: When the end of the year comes around, are you more or less likely to view/create TG captions? Some people have a much busier end of year time and can't find the time. Others need to escape from the duties that the end of the year provides, and use TG captions to escape. Which side do you fall under?
