I keep coming back to how to make this stuff available forever after I am gone. How to have some presence forever. I do not want to be forgotten and I know that some of you will not forget me (and I am not planning on going anywhere yet!) but what about in the next generation or future generations? Then I think that I don't care after all and that we all disappear from the collective memory eventually. The Leo in me wants to be as memorable as Einstein or Shakespeare — how egotistical of me! I always go back and forth, arguing both sides — the ultimate devil's advocate to myself.
I also have a drive inside me to share what I know and teach people things. I want to video myself knitting and show some of the things that I have learned and/or worked out for myself. I don't have kids but would love to pass on the knitting bug.
Then there is the small part of me that hope some of what I write might help someone and that I might get a tip or two in my PayPal tip-jar. If only there was a "Tip-Jar" graphic available at PayPal and not just the needy-sounding "Donate". I wonder if PayPal would mind me replacing the graphic with my own.
So, yet another screed of wibble. I guess this counts as writing something today - I will wordcount it later once I copy and paste it to Scrivener from Xjournal.
*adds poll* Results only visible to me:
Do you read my writing?
Do you like to look at my photos?
Would you like me to make some knitting (or other) videos once I work out how?
Do you find the donate button on my posts offputting?
Should I post everything to this livejournal for posterity?
