I was really good about updating my blog when I first started. Then as I got busy and I would let it slip. One month, two month’s, three month’s, then I completely forgot about.
I know having a blog is a self indulgent venue for me to fulfill some strange need to let people know what’s going on with me and my photography – I suspect no one really cares, but I do it anyway. The world is full of tweeters, bloggers, facebookers, so why do I have this need to put another one out there? Is it my competitive side…be funnier, or deeper than others? Am I narcissistic? I honestly do not believe that I am more important than the next guy. So, I’m not sure, but I believe it’s some sort of new addiction.
I never understood updates from people who post solely about their children, or worse, their family pets. I really don’t give a shit if baby Mary pooped in the potty for the first time, or that little Johnny’s baseball team won the East Bum-F_ _k Junior League World Series, or Buttons, the cutest cat in the world, saved a baby bird from imminent death.
I try to post observations and funny (at least I think their funny) photos of things I see. I also like to blog about the really nice people I get to photograph. I love my job as a commercial/corporate photographer, I really am lucky. As difficult as wedding photography is, and don’t let anyone tell you it’s easy, I love photographing weddings. If I have to work on a weekend, what better place to spend it than with 200 people having a great time celebrating a wedding.
I think I’m going to continue. It’s cathartic for me, and right now, at this point in my life, I need catharsis. If I keep all of this in my head, I may explode, or go crazy.
Whether you check-in on me or not – I don’t care. But if you do, let me know, cuz I need that positive reinforcement If you don’t like my posts, well, you know what to do!
