Don’t leave Trash on the Fly on the bank to die.

The 60-day domain renewal notice came the other day, and it’s time to revive this thing or let it suffocate.

Trash on the Fly is a pretty cool name. I’d like to try to keep it alive, as a collaboration site. I have no interest in keeping it alive as a single-author blog, and I think the audience for single-author blogs has considerably shrunk over the last couple years. What, do I need to be more clear? : I like the idea of the site, but I don’t want it to be about me.

So let’s give it a shot: send in your submissions. You don’t have to be the best photographer or writer in the world. You may only ever contribute one picture, you may contribute many, let’s see how it goes. Bring it on and we’ll sort it out. Your post[s] will be credited to you. I really don’t even know how I’m going to do that yet, but I can figure it out.

Maybe later I’ll get around to writing submission guidelines, but for now: think something along the lines of more pictures than words. I’m looking for photo essays, not writing. I’m going to go out on a limb and assume I’m not the only person inundated with information. Just a nice photo and a word or two (or none) will do, thank you very much. Oh, and a haiku never hurts your chances of getting posted. There is a contact link near the upper left of the page. Use that to send a submission, or if you have other means of contacting me, use them.

I’ll pimp this post a little over the next couple weeks and we’ll see what happens. We’ll all know it didn’t work if there are no new posts and the site goes away on June 21 ;)

  • Heeeeck yeah. I’ll go dig something up, and spread the word besides.

    I’d love to submit some stuff! I used to keep a blog but got sick of keeping up a one man show as well. And your domain name is way radder than any I’ve had. I figure we have a week or two before the ice goes out here. After that I’ll start fishing and taking pics to send your way. We have a couple shoreline opennings in the ice… Maybe I’ll even get out soon.
