I mean everyone else is doing it. They say it's what you are supposed to do if you have a website. They say a blog is a great way to connect with your clients on a personal level. "They" say a lot of things... whoever "they" are.
The real reason I've decided to start blogging is because of Facebook. Yeah Facebook. I was sitting at the computer typing out a post about the print movement (don't worry... I'll blog about that too) and I realized that I was about to publish a whole book on my Facebook page. But let's face it, Facebook isn't where you go to read paragraphs of information and insight. It's just not what the platform was designed for. So, here I am in blog land.
Don't worry though. I've got a plan! (I've also got ADHD so lets hope I can stick to the plan.) I want to make this blog into something that is useful to my clients. Having portraits done is a very personal thing. You have to trust your photographer but I also think it's important to like the person who you are working with. So, I also want this to be a place where I can talk about things that are important to me as a person so that you can get to know who I am.
I wasn't joking about the ADHD though. I actually am diagnosed, so I know that I will struggle to maintain interest in keeping things updated. But I told you---I have a plan! I'm setting calendar alerts. I'm taking notes every time I think of a topic that I may want to write about. I'm going to find a blog buddy to keep me on track (note to self-- find out if blog buddy is a thing.) I mean, I've already got the topic for post number 2 so I'm WAY ahead of the game.
If there is anything that you would like to know about me, or any subject that you are interested in reading about, be sure to drop me a line. Email or Facebook messenger are the easiest ways to get in touch. I hope to hear from you all and I hope you enjoy my crazy version of blogging.
