My thoughts on blogging. Blogging is an exciting wonderful place, a world connected by a community which has grown to be bigger and stronger then anyone’s wildest dreams. All bloggers are in sympathy with each other, they share the disappointments, failures, triumphs and euphoria that goes with the job, but at the end of the day there is an amazing freedom in blogging, where we have our own space to create any content we like. Whether 10 people read it or hundreds of thousands, its a place of our own where no one can tell us what pictures to take, what to say and how to do it. And hopefully along the way, some one learns something, has a laugh, or a cry , or just enjoys the moment. I love blogging, but most of all, I love the amazing people I’ve met along the way.
What would I have been doing if I wasn’t blogging for the last two years? Probably having a lot more sleep, because the midnight hours are when I spend at my computer. Its kept me focused on taking more and more photographs, improving my photography with hard drive’s overflowing with images , because I hate to delete any, just in case I may need one in the future. Its challenged my cooking abilities, improved my computer skills to an all new level, and led me to a whole new world of like minded people and friends.
