I set myself a target of one blog post a week for a year! I’m nearly halfway through and I’ll be honest, it’s quite a task. There are so many different elements to being a self-employed professional photographer that take priority and the blog can feel like a weight around the neck some weeks. I’m still going to keep on blogging and see it out for the whole year though. I like to finish what I’ve started when I’ve set myself a goal. Giving myself this weekly target and finding creative topics to discuss week in and week out has been tough at times and it’s got me thinking about the evolution of the blog and what I might do once I’ve completed the full year of blogging. I guess I’m using this blog post to dump some ideas onto a page about the things I have been thinking about so if it doesn’t make much sense right now then don’t worry I’m still processing it all too.
I’m enjoying the blogging but I think it’s something that perhaps needs to be done once a month rather than once a week. Like I said it can feel like a weight around the neck sometimes when other work stacks up. Despite most of the blogs being short reads, they still take time to put together. So, I think less blogging but, hopefully, more interesting content when I do blog.
I’m also thinking of expanding the idea of Creative Nowhere Land to maybe include more than just a blog. I might even consider building a whole new website for Creative Nowhere Land. Somewhere there are fewer constraints on the different types of work that I create whether that’s photography, painting, writing, film etc. Some of which just wouldn’t sit here on my commercial photography website where people are coming only for photography.
I want somewhere that I can use as an outlet for all things creative and inspiring. What that is and what it will become is all part of the evolution. It might not always just be my work either! I know so many incredibly creative and inspiring people that perhaps other people could be involved in the site. It’s all just ideas at the moment but a place that can be anything creatively.
In Creative Nowhere Land there are no rules!
This feels like my most incoherent ramble of all of the blog posts so far haha. It’s a little all over the place because the ideas are all over the place as to what Creative Nowhere Land is, and possibly could be? Let’s just say that the wheels are in motion. A bit cryptic I know but keep following the blog and we will all see what Creative Nowhere Land evolves into in the future. Well, fingers crossed!
I will make more sense next week I promise. Maybe? So until then, have a great week!
