Big Texas Liberal Blogging Announcement & Innovation
Hello Blog Reading Public!
I’ve purchased one of the small Flip Cameras because I’m going to film videos and post them on this blog from time-to-time. I have many ideas for these videos—Though as yet these ideas are not fully formed.
(Above–19th Century camera. This would be a bit bulky to carry around. Here is some history of 19th century photography.)
Over the next week, I’m going to think what I would like to say, do and film in my videos. I’m going to test the camera both inside and outside to see how it works in various settings and how well it records sound. Later this week, I’m going to go to Galveston, Texas, on the sunny shores of the Gulf of Mexico, and film my first videos.
(Below–A movie camera of a type still in use. It is an Arricam ST. This camera is a bit elaborate for what I plan to be doing. Think of the batteries it must take. )
Because I want to do the videos right, I’m going to post on a reduced basis for the next week or so here at Texas Liberal. There’s only so much time I can spend blogging while keeping my job and spending time with the excellent wife.
I’ll post a picture or something else short and easy. Despite these short posts, I urge regular readers to still visit the blog as often as possible. The higher my blog traffic each day, the better I feel about the collective judgement of those I share the planet with.
(Below–A disposable camera. Hopefully you’ll feel that this blog merits more than one use.)
Texas Liberal has averaged 1645 page views a day since the first of the year. I have the goal of being the largest individually operated political blog in Houston and in Texas. I’m also a featured political reader blogger at the Houston Chronicle. (And I post on things other than politics as well.)
( Below–This self-portrait of one Robert Cornelius from 1839 is said to be the first picture of a person ever taken. Will anything I do last 170 years?)

Thank you for reading Texas Liberal. If you have any ideas for my videos, please offer a comment.
(Below–A Flip Camera just like the one I now have. I hope I do a good and creative job with my videos. Please visit Texas Liberal very often and see how I am doing.)
