I pushed against this, made excuses, told myself it was a bad idea...but I lost. The pull was just too strong, so I finally gave in and created a website. In the past I had a photography website/blog, a health/fitness blog, a lifestyle (or something) blog...with all of those past sites I obsessed over everything having to be perfect from the get go. I didn't want to look silly or be judged. Well, I've matured a little since those days and have learned that people will think what they want to think no matter how hard I try behind the scenes. So I decided to create this website, with all of its imperfections, just to get something out in the interwebs.
I don't have the perfect photos to showcase my work, I've forgotten to take nice pictures of most of my work, but I didn't want that to stop me. I used what I had, I read as many guides, watched as many tutorials as I needed to on creating this site, creating my logo, creating a little shop...all in the span of the last 3 weeks that my kids have been on Christmas break. Yeah, probably not the smartest idea to do that when they're on break, but it was now or never. I imagined launching my site on New Years Day with confetti and sparkles, that day came and went, and now it's the 5th and things are looking as presentable as they can for the time being. If I waited until everything was perfect this site wouldn't exist.
So with the launch of this site I am embracing imperfections, letting go of self limiting beliefs, and showcasing my work for all to see (not for all to like, but at least to see). I haven't decided if I will blog much or not...I mostly want to leave myself open to the possibility of blogging if I'm pulled to that direction, but I don't want it to be an added "should" for me.
Thank you for reading this far, leave a comment and tell me if you've already given up on those New Years resolutions.
