i was this close



sick day





  • i almost took my blog down today. i'm still torn. i started it last year with the hope of keeping a journal that simply showed everyone what i was working on, and was a little more to the point than my flickr page. unfortunately, flickr just seems too easy for me to update which means this blog has gotten neglected.

    however, after wandering around this site all day today and taking the time to actually fix the photo links, i started to reconsider taking it down. is it worth giving a second try? i get discouraged from sticking to it because i feel like there is already a wealth of inspiration out there. i love to look in on the every day lives of others, but sometimes i wonder if i'd rather just read instead of share.

    and truth be told, my own work is so sparse that i'm not sure i've got enough material to break out of the flickr box.

    well, i think you should stick around. even if you just post once in awhile! but i do enjoy looking at your photos on flickr as well. :) i vote to keep it and write whenever you feel like it.

    Everyone has their own take on what is beautiful. I think yours is great. Keep it up!

    Mmm, but for me, it's so good to keep a record of what has kept me passionate, you know? I can look back and see what distracted me in the spring, etc. And I absolutely love the gorgeousness of this image.

    i would love to see more of your work (even if you feel like it's sparse), but if you feel like it's not working for you, seeing you on flickr is enough too! or maybe you could do a combination of what you're working on, process, inspirations, etc. i say just go with whatever works for you.

    also, i agree with molly- i like reading back on my own blog postings. it's a good reminder..

    I'm with Anna Allen. I love your blog, even if it hadn't been updated in awhile. What about posting when and only if you want? I look at blogs though Google reader, so it's not as if it's an effort to keep checking back. Things just just pop up when they happen. And it's nice to hear your voice, even if it's only once in awhile.
