Ok shhh! Move in closer, next to the screen. There now, I’m about to tell you some of my secrets!
Secret #1 – I use my own photographs! Wait! I know what you’re thinking, that’s not really a secret, because you know that already, but let me tell you why I use my own photos (most of the time).
There was a concern about copyrights, and when I thought about that, I realized I was not giving myself enough credit, for being an artist/photographer. I had thousands of photographs, many of which are suitable for the blog. They are not of the best quality, and I don’t have a lot of expensive equipment, but they usually work out well.
Another reason I use my own photographs is that it is a HUGE time saver. When I first started, I found I was spending hours looking for the right photograph! It took longer to find photos than it did to write the post.
Secret #2 – Email and Bookmarks. I find another big time saver is not relying on email, to check messages. I simply use WordPress, and if I have to (because WordPress isn’t working) I use email as a backup. Also – I use bookmarks for sites that I don’t see often in my reader. I simply click and I am there to check on someone else’s site.
Secret #3 – Somehow, and I don’t really know how, I developed my own style of writing. Maybe you could call it “my voice”. It just happened over time. But I want to always be learning and growing. I write from a flow, so I guess my point is, just be yourself. See what style you have and create something from who you are!
Enjoy your blogging!
Peace and have a great rest of the week!
