I read recently, and shamefully it was probably on Facebook, that if you haven’t posted to your blog for several months, you should just go ahead and close it. Wow, that was harsh… to me at least. Firstly – I’m not a “black or white” kind of person. There is plenty of shades of grey, or other colors in between those two extremes. Secondly – it struck a cord…hard. I’ve been neglecting my blog, despite promises to myself and you, that I’ll try to post more often this time – and yes, it was last year! And here I find myself again, in a rut, not only with words, but images, ideas – the blog. Confused and distracted. I’ve been calling it midlife crisis for too long already so maybe now it is finally the time to dig myself out of this hole. And no, it is not about being lazy and unproductive. I’ve been working on many project of my own, photographic and others, and the big excuse of having no time for the blog is not going to cut it this time… I know, I know. The truth is, the blog writings got sidetracked because all the other projects, yes, but also because of my very underdeveloped decision making skills. I simply didn’t know what I should share on my blog and if it should just be photography related, and all the other stuff, life including, was so distracting that it led to procrastination squared. Not a proud moment – if one can call half a year a moment.
I was thinking and I decided that no amount of thinking is going to solve this problem. Duh! I just need to start writing and hitting that publish button. Out with a rut, in with ideas, new and old, some never seen work, new and old projects. There will still be pictures of clients, their families, and babies, and kids of course, but there will be plenty of room for sharing on new successes – hopefully, and failures – unavoidable. With a healthy dose (yeah, right!) of anxiety and fear of contributing to digital clutter, I’m starting today. See you soon. Malina
P.S. For those of you , who like me can’t wait for spring this year, here is something to cheer you up – it’s coming, 70F on Sunday, and a picture from last year:
