Thursday, February 2, Rob Guthrie is going to be blogging here, and I will be blogging on his site – Rob on Writing.
We will be writing on the topic – Why I write.
This is the first time I’ve done the guest blogging thing; however, Rob is a pro at it, so I know that everything will be fine.
My biggest concern now is the confusion that exists all across the worldwide web regarding our identities. To compound the rapidly escalating problem, someone, and I should point out that no one knows for sure who is responsible, has photo-shopped my new avatar with Rob’s black cap.
It’s bad enough to run through downtown Huntsville wearing MY BLACK CAP and have people come pouring out of the taverns, businesses, and churches, shouting, “Here comes Rob Guthrie. Look, he’s getting younger, and he’s grown a beard.”
Add to that my photo-shopped avatar that has gone viral and… well, you get the idea. It’s very confusing for my thousands of followers and both of Rob’s. So before we do our Guest Blog appearances, I thought I had better set the record straight once and for all.
This is Rob Guthrie, in his famous black cap – note: it’s not famous in Colorado because everyone wears one 365 days a year.
This is me, wearing my black cap, on a cold night in Huntsville. Notice how much younger I am than Rob. I cannot understand how anyone could confuse the two of us.
This is my new avatar – photo taken by Adrienne Wall
This is the photo shopped version of my wonderful avatar. By the way, I understand the FBI, aided by Clint Eastwood, is close to discovering the identity of the person who did this – their search is now centered in the Parker, Colorado area.
