This past semester I learned a lot about WordPress. While I didn’t really personally enjoy using WordPress, I learned valuable skills in this course that can be translated into my personal and professional lives.
In the beginning of this semester I was really excited about this blog, but I also realized very quickly that I didn’t have a lot of extra time (18 credits) I wanted to devote to this blog. Because I didn’t enjoy WordPress personally for the content I was producing, it felt like a chore to come on and post in my free time outside of assignments. And for any good blog, it should never feel like a chore. It should be fun! I have had blogs in the past with “big” (relative) followings, but this particular platform just didn’t work best for me personally. However, if I ever wanted to create longer length written content, I would probably utilize WordPress again.
This experience was very positive. I received a lot of encouraging and amazing comments from many of you. One of you even told me I should try and pursue photography as more than a hobby, but as a source of income. I really appreciate all of the positivity many of you have shown me, and it has really boosted my confidence in my skills.
That being said, I will probably not be returning to WordPress. However, I will take the advice of some of you and will be branching out onto other social media outlets.
As of right now these accounts are blank. The big reason for this is because I am currently designing a watermark for my photography. The best platforms for photography (on social media) right now are also websites that routinely steal art. To combat this (out of principal and not really pettiness) I will not be uploading any work onto them before I am able to design and put watermarks on individual photographs.
However, after final exams I will be posting on these accounts because I will have considerably more time to devote to my art and my social media in general.
If you would like to continue to follow my photography you can follow me on any of these websites:
