I figured since my About Me page (work in progress) is kind of bare I’d give all of you a little introduction as to who I am. Hiiii my name is Amanda <waves> I am a wanna-be photographer and a wanna-be writer and a wanna-be world traveler. I find that posting photography comes easy to me (ok I lied, I do have a very hard time figuring out which pictures to share; more about that later), writing about my photography (or anything in general) is a little bit bigger challenge for me. I’d love to have the words stream from my fingers into these magical sentences that helps people see what I see, or maybe they’ll think “huh, I am so glad I’m not the only one that does that” or even “wow that recipe looks good and I am so glad she posted it” or maybe it’ll just make them smile…I’m ok with that, too. <grin>
For years I kept a personal journal about what I was thinking and feeling and I found over the years that became harder to do, I have somehow bottled up all of this creativity inside me and just let it evaporate over time. I’m not sure why, I know I am my own worst enemy and that I can self sabotage better and faster than anyone I’ve ever met. (there’s where that having a hard time finding pictures to share bit comes in) The goal now is to change all of that. Now in present day 2014 I am working on my personal journal again. It’s not as easy as it used to be, but the whole point is I’m trying.
In this blog I’d like to write about my photography, my travels and my experiences. I’d also like to share any recipes I find that are good and maybe do a little creative writing along the way.
If you are an aspiring photographer, writer, painter, <insert anything here> I’d love to hear from you…let me know you are there so I can follow you, too. I love to be inspired by others.
My hope is that with this blog I will break out of my shell I have put myself in. I want to stop standing in my own way and I want to share what I can create with the world. I love taking pictures and I love to paint, but I feel like both are wasted if they just sit in my little world without getting out into the big world; after all a lot of people on the Internets have inspired me, my hope is that one day I’ll inspire one of you.
Now, please don’t consider this a bribe instead consider this a “welcome to my blog’ treat. Thank you for stopping by.
