I Need a Blog Picture
“Remember: power is a state of mind. You have as much as you think you have. If you don't think you have any, you don't.”
- Motivational tape, The Assassination of Richard Nixon
I've just been browsing through some blogs by a few friends- some local, some from around the globe, most of whom I've never met in real life. We writers we meet online and help each other out when we can. And if that's not a form of friendship, I don't know what is.
Okay, I'll let you dry your eyes now.
Most people have interesting pictures on their blogs that brighten their page and reflect the content of their blog. I need a picture like this. The title of my blog is in clear white block caps at the top of the page:
POWER IS A STATE OF MIND
It's mostly an E-diary, filled with all the maniacal and depraved things I do in life. It also has some political criticism and links to my published stories and poems. Want me to get booted out of a girl's house by her mum? It's in here. Want me to get touched-up by a Z-list celebrity dog? Done. Want to know why we have dreams? Read on.
I'd rather not have a picture of myself as a picture reflecting the content would be much more fun. And that's what this blog is all about. Fun. It covers serious issues, such as the lack of metrication in Britain compared to the rest of Europe- when the metric system itself was invented in Britain- and it explains what exactly has gone wrong with the higher educational system.
With regards to the writing style, my main influences are Bret Easton Ellis, Hunter S Thompson and Chuck Palahniuk, as well as magazines like Esquire and GQ.
If you can think of a particular picture that would suit the blog and be really impressive, please let me know: describe it or send me the link to it- if not the picture itself.

Thanks for reading.
