E-course homework

I'm taking an e-course on blogging with http://livlane.com and the first homework is answering a simple question..."Why do you blog?" I'm just going to type out everything that comes to mind so, prepare yourself for the world of random: -to share -laugh at myself -show off my work -connect with friends (those I know and those I don't) -because I love to journal and this fills that space in me -it gives purpose to things that are small but, big to me -it means something to the person reading it

-I like it

-it gives me a reason to push myself in photography -knowing people are watching -I have a voice and should use it

-to think out loud

But, what's my purpose? - to inspire and be inspired: through the beauty in real life and the images I capture.

Everything I write should revolve around those two things. I'm sure of it!

What are the blogs that I return to (not because they are family or friends) This is a great way to see what's important to me.

1. Lila was here! Simple pictures...that speak volumes! This is what I would like to do someday. One picture a day that captures my beautiful life.

2. Little Green Pastures! She is my friend but, I love the way she writes...I keep asking her to write a book but she doesn't have time.

3. Mike Colon! I like how clean his photography is. It's beautifully simple. I love that. I want to capture emotion is pictures.

Then I thought of a personal question that wasn't a part of my homework. Would I blog if I didn't have a photography business? If it didn't make me money? and my answer is yes. i love to inspire and be inspired. Blogging does both for me!
