The thing about blogging is that it's your content - yours! You completely decide what you post, create and curate. It's that simple. As long as you enjoy the process, you're on to a winner.
I read a complete mixture of blogs, from photography blogs sharing dreamy snaps, to lifestyle bloggers posting a simple snap of their day while also having a little chat. Each single one I love, for their own individual reasons and mainly because that blogger is just doing what they love. Of course, I love scrolling through picture perfect posts but I also love blogs that focus on writing over photography just as much.
Blurry photo alert.
Jack and I went out for an evening walk and thought we'd also take the camera and tripod along with us. Photography is certainly an interest of mine and I'm slowly but surely learning, thanks to the main man. We drove to McDonald's, grabbed a toffee latte and headed for a little spot beside the sea.
It was dark. Like really dark and super chilly, so obviously these photos were a challenge. I'm not overly impressed by these snaps, however it's a good memory to document; we were experimenting with a fairly new camera but it was also a great chance to get out of the house.
I absolutely LOVE scrolling through those 'magazine' style posts but I also fall in love with natural and raw shots of the outside, cups of coffee and daily snippets.
These clean, white and flawless photos are often those featured in popular blogs, which then makes you feel like you should be living up to that expectation. In my opinion, the most important thing is that you remain authentic. Stick to what you enjoy; whether that's writing, photography, storytelling, documenting art - you name it. Don't get caught up in the negatives, just do your thang!
