Anyone else just awful at blogging? Anyone else just straight terrible with the internet sometimes? No seriously… I’d love to know that I’m not the only one. When I'm in a slower season, I find it so hard to generate interest in my work, even with all of these modern technological tools at my disposal. I suppose I just have a hard time “promoting” myself, or engaging an audience, because I’m afraid of bothering people and of course.. afraid of being criticized.
I always think I have to have something profound to share in order to blog. I rarely allow myself to think that HEY MAYBE I CAN ACTUALLY JUST SHARE - anything, everything, something. I’ve come up with an idea - a way to encourage myself to do two different things I don’t like to do: 1) blog often and 2) limit my content. As you would have gathered by now, I find blogging very difficult and intimidating so my approach is often to ignore it. When I do blog, or post on social media, I usually can’t pick my favourites. I end up posting so many photos because I can’t make up my mind. What do they say… “less is more”? Whether this is true or not, I think that limiting my choices and choosing quality over quantity might be a good challenge for me.
So.. from now on, I’ll be posting “Five Favourites” as often as I can (without overloading your feeds of course). Five Favourites will be simply this - five favourite photos and a little write up about something I’ve photographed, whether it be a family, an individual, my dog, a trip, an event, etc. When I think I have something “profound enough” to say on another topic or if I decide to share a larger blog post, I’ll still do that of course. This is just a way for me to share content more frequently because well… I have a lot to share. A lot of beautiful people and places have been in front of my lens and I’d like to show them to anyone who has the time.
