This is my 100th post on this ol’ Write Frame of Mind blog. I figured maybe it ought to be special or some such. I didn’t think about it much, but just let my subconscious play with the idea for a day or two.
Here’s what it came up with:
I’m a hands-on kind of guy. When I create art, I like it to have an interactive element. I’m self-employed, and my company’s specialty is upcycling unuseable vintage & antique items to make them functional. You know, so you can interact with the pieces in tangible ways. I am also a teacher at heart. Any chance I get to fulfill this role, I try to incorporate interactive elements into the process. Want to know why? Because doing something helps make the lesson unique and memorable.
Peppered throughout the posts on this blog are snippets written in Invisible Ink. You’ll have to highlight the hidden section in order to read it. Go ahead. Give it a testrun by dragging your mouse over the “blank” area right below this line.
See? Invisble Ink nested within a post. Nifty, eh? Thanks for the idea, Mr. Subconscious.
So, if you’re up for a scavenger hunt for random thoughts sprinkled across this blog, I’ve made it easy for you. See the “Tags” over there?
There is one titled “Invisible Ink”. It will lead you to most [but not all…] of the secret messages.
From this point on, I will continue to hide these Invisible Ink messages within each new post. I will no longer use the “Invisible Ink” tag. You’ll just have to remember to hunt for the sneaky little message yourself.
Enjoy the scavenger hunt!
I’ll try to make the Invisble Ink messages entertaining, straight forward, and perhaps uber-personal. This is my gift to you. A bit of interactive reading. A peephole into the blog author’s soul. Or something. You’re welcome. And you’re worth it. I love you more than I love guyliner.
