Large Black Triangle “S” With Circles

Really? In one post? The answer to both questions is I don’t really know.

Easy answers are I am Chris Pollock and I am blogging this post because my Blogging 101 assignment today is to do so.

The deeper answers are more detailed and mysterious. Beyond my “hen pecking” keyboard skills and literary inabilities.

I suppose an outline with an intro, bibliography and some philosophy with a purposeful conclusion would be in order here. Yeah, no, I’d rather dig a ditch!

In an attempt at keeping to the point I will define myself as mostly undefined. How’s that for avoiding the point? Seriously now, if I answer the “why am I here” part first it might work better.

I am here at Blogging 101 because one of the parts of “who I am” is a disorganized artist that really would like better publicity, record keeping, networking etc. etc.  My blog so far is a photo record of work done with some comments. The purpose of trying “Blogging 101” is to improve my site/blog and to learn skills and methods that will promote, record, and organize the artist part of who I am.

Here is an example of my blog. It is what I planned for tonight’s post.

Made this about 8-10 years ago. Not sure what it is or what to call it. Pretty sure it was sold years ago. It was more playing with metal. The junkyard had a bunch of sheet aluminum and it turned into many objects. Still have some but I used all of the best stuff. This piece is 4-5 feet tall.


About the author

Past: Tolerated the U.S. educational system as far as a Bachelors degree. Favorite sports were skateboarding, windsurfing and pole vaulting. Worked on many jobs and projects, giving me a wide variety of skills and experiences.

Present: People call me a renaissance man. I still enjoy variety and being productive. Probably why artwork is one of my lasting activities. Snowboarding and hiking are my favorite ways to recreate with my amazing wife and sons.



  1. Ha, I had the impulse to give the same answer as you for who am I and why am I and why am I here. Well, not exactly the same, I mean I didn’t think of writing that I was Chris Pollock… but you know what I mean. I’m also disorganized, so we have that in common too. I figured that was enough reason to follow you. (Well, to be honest, that and because today’s assignment is to follow 5 people…but, naw – I would have anyway. Cheers, Chris!

  2. It’s fine. I used it because I figured it was a good response to your “like”. Blogging 101 seems helpful and is making me want to step up my game. I hope it is going well for you too!
