As a blogger, I’ve come to light up at the sight of the contrasting navy and orange of the blogger service. In general the days of writer’s block are few and I thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to put pen on paper, er fingers to keyboard.
And then . . . we arrive at this venture. I seem to be a big ‘ol photography blog failure. My personal posts seem to stay personal, never crossing into photography and my photography posts stay pictorial, never showing any depth.
What a dilemma. At least it’s consistent though. I do seem to be facing dilemmas in pursuing this gig. There’s the time issue, which really is two fold. I don’t seem to have enough time in the day to make this into what I see in my heart, believe in my mind that it can be, nor am I willing to sacrifice the time with my family that so incredibly defines who I am. In addition, there’s the money catch 22. Why must one always have money to make money? Not that I’m intent on being wealthy, just a borderline profitability would do. :)
There are definitely highlights though and they seem to be growing brighter, just as the sun is gaining strength in Minnesota!
For one, I’ve booked yet another wedding. Just a few months ago this seemed unattainable, a year ago unimaginable. I wouldn’t be here without the support of family and friends, especially those early ones entrusting their faith.
And as a push towards something tangible, I have business cards. Real business cards which have my name and contact on them. Like a big timer. And to top it off, I’m pretty sure they’re going to be gone soon . . . but I’m okay with that, as I have commissioned the start of my first branding and identity!
I’m stoked to begin the process with Rhian! I connected with her through the wonders of Etsy, and it appears that she has made quite a few people happy. I was immediately drawn to her use of illustrations and the depth that they employ to create 3 dimensionality. Wouldn’t you agree [this is just an example of her work]?
