A sneeky peek and some thoughts on writing
I struggle with this blog. Everything I know about promoting my business tells me that I need to be writing to boost my SEO, writing to get my personality across to potential clients and writing to celebrate my successes and present a positive view of my business.
This post actually started off as something completely different, as I am acutely aware that I haven’t blogged for a while.
I’ve got loads to blog I’ve just been too busy editing it all to actually get around to it. So I dutifully sat down this morning with my morning coffee, my to-do list screaming ‘write a blog post’ at me, and I find I have nothing to say about any of my pictures today.
The trouble is, often everything I write about my own work sounds like a cliche. Mainly because it is: I am a photographer not a writer so when I try to write about my own work, it’s either flat and lifeless or it sounds hackneyed.
My photography is better than my writing (I hope. If not, I really am in trouble!) so I feel as though the things I write some how diminish the image because they don’t do them justice.
I’d love to hear from other creatives about how they deal with this. Do you write about your own work? How do you feel about your writing? If you’re a writer/blogger do you struggle with the finding images that do your words justice?
It really was an inspiring project to be involved in and that’s the trouble I guess; what ever I write here will never quite do it justice – you need to see the final outcome to apreciate the work that everyone put into it.
