New Directions...

I've been struggling for YEARS over what to blog about. Do I blog about my photography? Do I blog about my paintings? According to all the entrepreneurial how-to blogs I read, I need to find my niche, tribe, and circle and cater my blog and writing to them. (Is there a niche that caters to painters who also create photographs? Or photographers who also paint?)  I've had the hardest time trying to separate my painter/artist self from my photographer self. I've come to the conclusion (finally!) that I just can't do it. It's not me. I'm a painter. I'm a photographer. It's all entwined into who I am and I would be doing a great disservice to everyone (but, mostly myself..)  if I only talked about one of those endeavors.

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom-Anaïs Nin

So, here I am. Painter. Photographer. Owner of small businesses. Crafter. DIY lover. Pinterest fiend. Terrible knitter. Plant rescuer (and cacti killer.) Girl who recently fell in love with cooking and baking but hates to sweat...I'm all of the above. All at once. And that's what I should be blogging about (maybe not all at once...)

I'm feeling a little bit better about blogging and where I'm headed from here. I don't think I will continue posting the handmade weekend interviews. Don't get me wrong-- I LOVE handmade and wholly support the craft and maker movement. I will think of some other way to give a shout out to creative entrepreneurs. I might bring back Five Things Friday. Or not. Tell me, what would you like to see more of?
