I finally had the courage of my convictions…I’m starting a blog! I realise that to be successful professionally (and perhaps personally too), I absolutely have to invest in blogging as a means to reach and communicate with others. What does the greatest creative and artistic works matter when you have no one to share it with, right? So, please allow me to introduce my new communication platform to you…*drums rolling*. I present to you; Photonista : The Blog.
“You love writing! Blogging should be easy for you,” my sister says.
Yes, true but there are two teeny, tiny problems. 1) To quote Thomas Mann; “A writer is somebody for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people.” I cannot agree more. I write and rewrite more than a dyslexic perfectionist. It’s irritating and time-consuming and it drives me up the walls, and yet it is one of the greatest loves of my life! And 2) I’m an absolute, crazy private person who hates even posting a picture of myself on Facebook. Mind you, my Facebook friends are kept at an absolute minimum as I am more likely to reject than accept an invitation. No, I’m not that bad…I’m worse!
So I’ve been back and forthing about this blogging thing and finally decided to give it a go. Please know that I will most likely not blog about myself (my life’s not that interesting anyway). But I do hope that you’ll tag along for the journey as I grow (or at least try to grow) professionally.
Here’s to my blogging journey of discovery…
