That’s me. A FABULOUS DREAMER, and a DODGY DO-ER.
Pretty simple really.
This thought came to me whilst I was attending a Bloggers Brunch hosted by the lovely Christie of Kids Business. (thank-you Christie!) – more on Fridays Bloggers Brunch tomorrow….
Hallmark has put out a new range of inspirational cards, and this one really stuck out to me….
That’s when it came to me. I think and dream ALL. THE. TIME. Whilst that may be a fabulous thing, it would be great is I could actually ever follow through and DO the stuff I dream about.
So – if I CAN dream it – I CAN do it.
Surely that gives me permission to follow my dreams…
I have come to a vague stand still with my blog. I am at a cross-roads. It is growing somewhat. What originally started as me writing about ‘stuff’ – my little girl-tribe and what to, it then morphed into a place more for my gorgeous FABULOUS families that I photograph, and less about ‘stuff’. Lately I find myself more and more drawn to writing ‘stuff’ and sharing our adventures, my thought and generally funny things that happen.
I feel like my lack of DO-ing has led to missed opportunities, as I watch other people around me DO the things that I have dreamt about – in their one way – so of course then I put y dreams to the back of my mind, thinking ‘if they have done it – there goes my chance’.
CODSWHALLOP. (thanks grandma for that gem of a word!)
The conundrum I face is that of:
- do my photography families (past, present and prospective) want to scroll through all of my ‘stuff about us’ posts to get to photographs?
- do people actually really want to read what I write?
- is anyone reading this
- am i making everyone happy?
- willI scare people away if I write what I want, and maybe post less photographs
- could I actually post a post without photographs – or would that be some sort of sin?!
As I was discussing all of these ponderings with a friends, Madison piped up with ‘IT’S YOUR BLOG’. Which was basically her way of saying, why can’t you just write what YOU want to write, rather that trying to make everyone happy. Just make you happy. (Whose child is she, and who taught her such clarity!).
SO – in a nutshell, I WILL put together the new blog design I have been dreaming about for AGES, but haven’t actually DONE, because I was too busy umming and ahhhing and what others wold think of it, and too busy comparing myself to other (bad bad bad).
I WILL start writing about the things I want to share, and yes – I WILL consider opening up sponsorship space.
I IWLL start following my dreams, and making concrete plans to do what iILOVE.
- keep your eyes peeled…
In the meantime – please share your thoughts on my crossroads. Are you a fabulous dreamer and a dingy do-er or do you DO stuff?
(just a quick edit – the lovely Meghann from BAM POW PALEO, is a clever gal who coaches us dodgy do-ers into becoming fabulous do-ers. Whip on over to her and say hi!
