Blog Vandalism

BAM! I did it! I just put graffiti on my blog. Essentially, graffiti is images or lettering scratched, scrawled, painted or marked in any manner on property (aka, my blog) so technically, this counts!

Why did I mark in a certain manner on my property?

Because I love graffiti. I understand that it can be disrespectful when done without permission, and that it costs a lot of money to remove, but I think its fascinating. So I created my own tag.

A "tag" is the most basic writing of an artist's name, so all it really is is a writer's personalized signature.

Technically tagging my own blog is not vandalism though... I had my own permission to do it. ;)

One of my favorite graffiti artists is Banksy. He's fairly well-known and he was up for an Oscar for a documentary that he directed on street art. The coolest thing about him is not his art (which is pretty amazing) but the fact that no one knows who he is.

On another completely related topic-

Six Word Journal:
(Day Four): Excessively tiresome and rather depressing day.
(Day Five): Watched some interesting movies and slept.


  1. I finally did stop reading the previous post after the second warning--hope I didn't miss something. Yeah, I like graffiti, too. It's extreme and very provocative.

  2. No, you didn't miss something. If you did keep reading the previous post, there was a little added bonus at the bottom for people who like doing the opposite of what things tell them to do.
