Day 5: Something A Bit The Same


t’s the annual challenge to blog in a way different to how you normally blog. You may choose to create a podcast, or vlog, create a wordless post or write in verse. You've already stretched your wings with an infographic, now it's time to freestyle. You can post on any topic you like, but be sure to post in a style different from your usual blog presentation. There's not too much guidance for this one simply because the more varied the posts are on this day, the wider the sources of information for other bloggers will be. Bonus points if you manage to work your house animal in somehow.

Day 5 - Something a Little Bit Different

It's back, and this time it has the most amazing of prizes (look for the prize for 'most creative post'). This was a massive success last year, and for many it was the highlight of the Blog Week, so this year you are challenged, again, to find a new way of blogging.This is an experimental blogging day to try and push your creativity in blogging to the same level that you perhaps push your creativity in the items you create.There are no rules of a topic to blog about but this post should look at a different way to present content on your blog.

For something different I have created a GIF of me knitting.  In an endless loop that never gets me anywhere.

I have been a big fan of GIFs since learning their potential on the decidedly non-fiber website, Jezebel, where the commentors will often use a clip from a TV or of a famous person to denote excitement or displeasure with the content or just have GIF Parties.  Because they are short windows of time (about 4-10 frames long) they loop intefinately so that leaves much potential for accidental GIFs (ie clips from TV shows and cable news) and designed GIFs like the James Van Der Memes site (which if you are a fan of the internet and were a fan or watcher of Dawson's Creek during adolescence you will love).
