One of the Cleverest Blog Postings I’ve Ever Seen


You have to check out this posting on The Amateur Gourmet.

It’s one of the best blog postings I’ve ever seen. (Thank you Leslie Carol Roberts for telling me about it.)

Here are other examples of photo storytelling that shows the power of the medium:

    Een bijzonder artikel – het kan dus anders

    Een post (artikel) hoeft niet alleen tekst te zijn. Zelf probeer ik tekst te combineren met afbeeldingen. Dat lukt niet altijd soms weet ik niet zo goed welke afbeelding je erbij moet plaatsen. Maar je kunt ook tekst plaatsen bij afbeeldingen. Dan word…

    Amateur Gourmet + White Truffles = Very Creative Blog Posting

    You know that I am into good food and creative blogs. Check out this blog posting from the Amateur Gourmet being invited by Alain Ducasse to a white truffle (from Alba You like Jessica Alba? You will like the truffles ) dinner. I am jealous of …

    Clever, insprired and so funny, indeed !
    Just to mention that the app. used to create this photo storytelling is “Comic Life” from Plasq.
    An awesome tool all in drag and drop actions with a lot of features to personalize your work.
    I’ve been using it for personnal needs (I create comics books for familly and friends as presents).
    It’s such a funny way to re-invent stories with your photo library in order to make your characters speak or think far from what they initially spoke or thought 😉
    A lot of clever things on this blog too ! 🙂

    Un post muy inteligente.

    Este post es una muestra de como se puede lograr que una gran cantidad de información pueda ser trasmitida de manera didáctica y entretenida. Requiere creatividad y trabajo pero vale la pena. Vía: Guy Kawasaki.

    Great use of visuals to tell the story — it certainly stands out!
    And heya, Guy, I must’ve been hibernating… since when did your blog’s name become How to Change the World? I just noticed it in my RSS reader!

    Truffles or Bust and the laughing baby

    Many thanks to the ubiquitous kawasaki for this lead. Anything but a photo blog, here is a wonderful use of photos as part of a story-telling device. See it for yourself on the Amateur Gourmet. Adam uses humor and a comic-book technique to share an ego…

    Comic Life is a great app, isn’t it? Apple’s been bundling it with the Mac Mini and the iMacs for some time now.

    Kreativer Bloggen

    Dass Bloggen auch mal was anderes bedeuten kann, als ein paar Zeilen Text zu posten, zeigt uns der Amateur Gourmet mit seinem Bericht von einem Besuch im Gourmetrestaurant von Alain Ducasse. Gefunden bei Guy Kawasaki.

    I guess I’m not enough of a foodie to appreciate the posting. I lost interest after the first “page” of comic stuff. And a shame all the text is in the graphic – it’d be hard to find it later via a web search.

    I love playing with Comic Life, but hadn’t thought of using it for my blog. Great! And definitely just begging to be stolen!
    I agree that this format works best when it’s kept short. Not every reader is willing to follow comics for too long.
