I do this every year. And every year at the end of it, I am worn out. But I always manage to do it. It always make me wonder why i don't do this every month? Day to day??
Because even though I could think of a million things to talk about every day, I just don't have the time or the energy to follow through.
This month's NaBloPoMo forced me to do some evaluation when it comes to this blog. It forced me to do some thinking with about the direction of this blog and how I feel about the direction blogging in general is going.
So of course, there will be changes. I'm not quite sure what but there will be.
Because I've gotten to the point where I don't enjoy “BLOGGING” per say anymore.
Now I love to write on this blog. i love to share photos. I love to go to other blogs and see what you guys are up to in your daily lives. I love to go and learn something and sometimes, I love to enter the giveaways.
But I feel like blogging has lost that community that was there whenI first started blogging. Back then( about 6 years ago now) blogging was about connections. Now, it's about business. I guess that's a natural progression, but I'm not feeling it. I thought I was, but not so much.
Now, I have no objection to making a few bucks on here. Camera/photography money you might say.
But I don't want this blog to become one big reivew.
I want my community back. I don't want folks to come to my blog simply because they are obligated to based on being in a comment group on facebook. I don't want you to like my facebook page simply because i liked you first and you feel like it's something you should do. I don't want folks to come to my blog simply because they want to win something. I son't want people to come to my blog because of excellent SEO.
I want people to come to my blog because they care about me, they are interested in what's going on in my life, or they want to see pretty pictures, or that they want to learn something about photography.
towarsds the new year, I'll be focusing on that( after I get a few projects already started out of the way. )
I might even change the name of this blog again!( i know, like really?)
Hope you guys stick around.
