WordPress Daily Prompt today is “Be the Change: What change, big or small, would you like your blog to make in the world?”
This is something Chris and I were just talking about this morning in a round and about way. She mentioned that she just doesn’t feel right if she doesn’t journal first thing in the morning. I said that I don’t feel right if I don’t post my challenges first thing in the morning. Then the light bulb turned on. One of my original concepts for having a photography blog is that I absolutely do not write for fun or journal. I am not a word person. I know how to put a sentence together at least most of the time. I happen to be an extremely visual person and pictures and photography is how I communicate and write.
I realized that I have been journalling along. It is through my challenges.
For my Share Your World, I have a list of hundreds of questions and on Monday mornings I choose four of them to present to us each week to answer. They are always questions that somehow speak to me for that particular day.
For my Photo Challenges, I get to choose from about 100,000 photos to come up with my selection for the challenge. Yes, I spend lots of time organizing and key wording my photos so I can find them easily and quickly. On top of that I have a photographic memory of each photo I have taken over the years. I get to chose photos that really speak to me that day. They are clues to how I’m feeling and approaching each day.
Now back to the question, what change, big or small, would you like your blog to make in the world? I think that answer is a two part answer for me.
One is that I stay true to my personality and speak in my own language. The more I feel comfortable within myself, the better I’ll make my life and those around me feel. If I can remember that I’m speaking and communicating the way I know how to, my blogging friends will enjoy my blog and get a sense of who I am. I am hoping my message is that life is fun and so very worth being a part of.
The second is that with my challenges, I hope to bring joy to other people’s life. I want my blogging friends to have fun with photography and stay creative. I believe having fun and being creative keeps us alive and thriving. Without us having fun in this world there would be no love, family, security and peace. Without us all being creative life would be boring and dull. How would you like a life without anything new …. ever? Yuck!
Happy Blogging everyone. Let’s keep blogging in our own unique ways.
