Last year, I hired someone off Etsy to redo my website. She hired people to do work for her and they were spammers and took down my site. When I finally got it back up, 4 years of blogs were gone, some from 2017.
Heart broken I completely went a different direction with my website.
I switched from WordPress to GoodGallery and debated even doing a blog again.
The problem with photographer blogs is, they are usually the same thing, over and over again. Go read them, “oh this is the best family ever” or “I loved working with this couple, they were so sweet.” It gets to the point where it becomes fake. And that’s not me. I love my clients. I love having fun and shooting them, but I was tired of writing the same thing over and over again.
So I thought about not doing a blog anymore. But in this world of SEO, you’re told you need one to make Google happy. So I debated.
And then, when I was in bed, supposed to be sleeping, my brain was going through business things, like it always does (during the day my brain usually goes “ching chong–oh facebook”, anyone else know what I’m talking about?). And all these ideas came to me. And one of them was to completely delete what blog I had left and start over. But don’t just feature client after client.
This time around, I want my posts to be more meaningful. I love my local community and I want to feature people, places and things I like.
So I will be interviewing and featuring small business owners, and other people I find interesting and I hope you will too. I also want to feature products and things I feel are helpful.
What does this have to do with photography or me?
Well, I’ll be showcasing business headshots and photography I take of everything I feature.
I hope you love the new blog style and the new website. And I hope you learn something cool about the businesses around you, right here in Jacksonville!
