Welcome to my new blog! I’ve had blogs before, but hopefully this one won’t end up the way they did: broken redirects and 404 error messages. I’m David Senter. At the time I’m writing this, I am currently 15 and a rising sophomore in high school. I live in East Tennessee. I just misspelled Tennessee and thought Google Chrome was going crazy. Don’t worry, I fixed it.
Is there any way to get rid of this stupid WYSIWYG editor? I don’t want a double space when I hit enter. It makes me feel like I’m not in control of my blog. I would use wordpress.org on a host, but there aren’t really any better free web hosts for wordpress than wordpress.com, especially considering the traffic I’ll receive from the site and stuff. My parents won’t let me pay for web hosting.
I guess I’ll tell you what I like. I like photography (I have a Nikon D3100 and I just do amateur stuff for now), swimming (I’m on my high school swim team and a summer swim team), weather (I want to be a meteorologist/computer scientist for a career), technology (My most prized possession is my Apple iPod touch 5th Generation because I can’t afford an iPhone, and I have a rather old Dell laptop because I can’t afford a MacBook Pro), reading (I mostly read sci-fi/fantasy series), Minecraft, music (I have very picky music tastes so I really only like certain artists, not genres. My favorites are Evanescence, Within Temptation, Ellie Goulding, Regina Spektor, Little Big Town, Imagine Dragons, and Carrie Underwood), food (duh who doesn’t like food), writing (mostly just a sci-fi novel in my head but writing nonetheless), and other stuff that’s pretty random that I don’t do much anyway.
So yeah, my life is pretty boring. I’ll share it with you through this blog. I hope you read it and enjoy. I tried vlogging on YouTube, but I have very slow internet. Uploading took a nightmarish amount of time, and I feel like I can’t really be myself in front of a camera.
The title of the blog comes from photography. Dust accumulates on the sensor of a camera after a while, showing up as little blobs in your images. The title combines my passion for photography with my life experiences. Every time I try something new, go to a new place, see something I’ve never seen before, or meet a new person, I gain a little addition to my personality, a little speck of dust. This blog will be a combination of photography and my life experiences, so the title fits in a weird way that probably makes no sense at all.
Thanks for reading, and I hope you keep reading my future posts!
