IG feeds have been inundated with ALT captures. Seems like a great venture for those who really want to push their blogging capitol forward. This was something I thought I wanted. Until it came down to the nitty gritty of actually blogging.
I wonder if that is the main goal these days. Is casual blogging a thing of the past? Is there a future for those who just like to post pretty things and speak their mind once in awhile?
Bloggers and I’m talking fierce bloggers work really hard at what they do. They probably (like many creatives) don’t get the credit they deserve.
Shit ain’t easy folks.
So what’s left for the rest of us? I’m curious to know your thoughts on this whether you’re an income producing blogger who pulls together styled shoots and tutorials like nobodies business or if you’re like me and just blog whenever the inspiration hits or maybe you’re just thinking of starting a blog.
I’d still really like to push myself here but I’m 80% sure that it will never happen.
On another note….I’ve been playing with my watercolors a lot lately. It’s been my getaway from some of the not so great things that are surrounding us. I try so hard to stay positive for everyone because that’s what all my Pinterest quotes tell me to do (& no one likes a complainer) but I can’t help but be swallowed whole sometimes by the negative shit. This is where family tickle fights and playing in my (still being updated) workspace comes in.
There is no major life or death situation happening here. Just the usual everyday middle-class stress. Money, trying to conceive a second child, trying to figure out where I stand in the creative world, money, preschool, money, etc. Stuff I shouldn’t be complaining about.
So I’ll stop.
Now that I’ve got that off my chest, I’m ready to take on a Friday full of errands and a weekend full of love and adventure.
