Blogging and photography analogy

It occurred to me today that there are similarities between blogging and photography when it comes to which tools I choose at a given moment. Lately I have been much more into the film photography process and have been avoiding digital. Analog photography is more work, prone to error, and less convenient. But, when it works, I really love the results. And I love having the artifacts. This is how I feel about using Tinderbox for my blog. It's a pain. It can break at any time. It's way less convenient than just clicking Publish in, say, Scribbles. But I enjoy the process, the results, and having a document containing all of my notes forever. Tinderbox:Film=Scribbles:Digital I guess. Reminded me of an earlier post/quote: Convenience and meaning
