Hello to anyone reading my blog! This is my very first post and let me tell ya; I’m so nervous to post this. I’ve never been that great at writing so when I was reading one of my favorite YouTubers blog post and got inspired by her photography and easy reading I decided to comment and ask her for some advice about making a blog with not that much background in writing. Hours later instead of receiving a comment from (fav Youtuber) I got a very sweet comment by someone who also reads her blog, and he wrote me this:
Just came across this comment so I thought I’d lend you my opinion! I’ve been blogging for almost a year now and at the beginning I wasn’t sure how I’d do with it, whether I’d be able to write posts correctly, or posts anyone would even care to look at, so I understand where you’re coming from…
My best advice honestly is to start a blog ‘because you “WANT” to, whether you’re good at writing or not as long as you have the passion and inspiration behind it that’s all that matters. You’ll get better at writing posts and taking the photographs for it etc. as time goes on. So just go for it! Have fun and do it because you love it! All the best, Jacob.”
How sweet is he guys! Thank you, Jacob, for taking the time to comment on a post and inspiring me even more to start my blog. Check his out! His pictures are so beautiful.
I’ve always been interested in photography and in this day and age with such easy access to cameras and the internet its just a shame I haven’t documented my photos in blog form yet. I want to hopefully inspire people and also to encourage myself to pull out my camera with my big lens and not be shy about it and just take the damn picture.
We only live once and when you’re gone the people left behind on earth will appreciate all the photos and the feelings you wrote in a post. That would be the greatest gift to someone in the future. (My Future Children)
My mom passed away when I was 14 to cancer and then three years later my dad was diagnosed with early onset dementia and can no longer remember us. Photographs and videos mean something more to me than the average person and I never care about how many likes I got on them, I take photos for my future children and anyone who loves me and will miss me when I’m gone. I wish I had taken a million pictures of my parents because I don’t have many pictures of them with me. Photos connect and reconnect people with their memories and photos last forever.
