My blogging habits lately have been a constant work in progress. I have a close friend who let me know of her disappointment that I hadn’t written since January. I will earnestly try do better! Although my intentions are good, I’m sure that many of you have fallen into the trap of wanting to post but fail to do so also.

Recently I have had a moment of sudden revelation and insight, an epiphany, of sorts, and will begin working to change how often I post. This is always my aim and goal. I do truly enjoy bringing new and quality content to my readers (however many of you there may be left!). My epiphany was that I need to write about what inspires me, what’s dear to me, what excites me and what I’m passionate about. This sounds like a total no-brainer, right? Well, I have a confession to make. I was listening to the many so-called “blogging gurus” of the web and social media “experts”, and things got pretty confusing! I think I lost myself because I wasn’t being true to who I am. I wasn’t being my authentic self.

I have both heard and read that business blogs should be kept separate from personal blogs. This notion has caused me to search and search for a way to marry the very two things that I am passionate about in a way that wouldn’t disrupt my business. Big mistake! I caused myself much anxiety and stress, not to mention that many lack-luster posts may have been shared in the process. I was trying to please the imaginary “powers that be” and I didn’t even know who they were or why I should even care to listen to them…Still don’t!

I now see that I don’t have to separate my passions and I can do what ever I want! Why follow everyone else’s rules? One rule in photography is that you can “break the rules, but only after you know what the rules are”. Admittedly, I’m still learning about business, blogging, and social media, but I’m ready to throw the rules out the window!

I hope that you’ll join me as I venture down this new path. I know that it’s going to be an amazing journey! Just a heads up…there will be many changes in the coming months and I hope that you will stick around for them!
