Last year I posted about a few blogs that I had checked faithfully that I was swearing off of and I did…for a while. Slowly over the course of the last few months I’ve made my way back to a couple (and found a handful more in the process).
Looking at them now I have mixed feelings. I don’t think they’re all they’re cracked up to be. I’m not as anxious to see what some have to say anymore but I still check in to gain some perspective. Many are starting to make it feel too obvious that they are just out there to push their product or service. I appreciate everyone trying to make a living (that’s what I do, after all) but it starts to feel really impersonal. So I make myself a mental note and try to avoid that mistake myself.
I still enjoy the pictures. Looking at them I no longer feel the longing or envy that I did when I stopped visiting. It’s because when I look back over all my pictures I’m happy overall. There’s some great stuff. Now, I can’t shoot indoor pictures to save my life right now. I have no light in my house! What’s a girl to do… But outside, on the road, even in the rink, I’m content with how we’re able to capture our life. It’s a important piece to me and I’m glad to find myself here already – where I want to be.
And maybe I can find a class or something to take care of the indoor thing.
