I’ve been thinking of so many things that I want (or need) to change for the coming year. One huge thing that’s been weighing on my mind, is this blog.
I started my first “blog”, way back in 2004, before it was cool, and before it was even called a “blog”…PrincessDelaney.com was conceived in order to follow Delaney’s many milestones, growth, and just general tidbits along the way. During that time, I also started pursuing photography in earnest, and after a few years of practice, study, and perseverance, decided to go pro. And then…Princess Delaney’s Blog became KIM PORTER PHOTOGRAPHY. And, all of a sudden, I got shy. I wanted my blog to be all about my “fabulous” photography, and figured no one would want to read about little ol’ me.
Well, tough titty, said the kitty.
One of my newest, but great friend, Monday West, only BECAME my friend because she got to know me via this blog. She started out as a blog reader. And, she decided I was an okay person, and then she read my blog and decided that I freakin’ ROCKED! Haha. (And, I took some cool pictures too, so she booked me.)
Well, THAT IS ENOUGH REASON FOR ME TO KEEP THIS BLOG GOING.
I want to go back to when my blog was just my journal with some cute pix along the way, and no one gave a crap about my “photography”.
In my heart, I think I am a decent journal-writer. I just uncovered a bunch of my old hand-written journals from middle school/high school/college that I can’t wait to dive into! In finding those, I realize that I MISS writing about my life experiences. Now, I am just more stoked that I can combine pictures WITH the stories I want to tell.
Will you join me in the New Year? Cuz, dangit! I don’t want to ONLY write for myself.
And, because every post deserves a picture, here is one from Monday’s very first session with me. She was expecting her 2nd daughter, Sedona, at the time. Now, 2 years later – expecting kid #3, next month! A BOY. She’s screwed, right?
