Follow the Crowd?

Are there any rules for blogging or expressing one’s self or writing our own stories?

If there is one, I am so glad I am not aware of it.

Because, you know, I don’t like to follow certain rules on how I should write or tell my stories.

I like it simple.

I like it direct.

I like for it to be truthful.

Most importantly, I like for it to be easy to understand and yet it hits where its needed.

I’m absolutely, 100% sure, that many of us have a favorite writer, painter or photographer who we idolize. Someone who we try to emulate. Maybe not copy exactly but at least serves as an inspiration and a guide.

I don’t.

Is that sad or what?

I really don’t.

Perhaps, this is the reason why I am still who I am now.

A nobody.

Every day I see and read posts about how to bring in more followers and readers. How to make an income out of your blog. How to be a great photographer, etc. etc.

And I am here, asking myself…why in the world am I not doing those things?

The dreamers, would probably say…it’s because I don’t have a dream.

The go getters, would probably say…I am a coward.

And the planners, you guess it, I just don’t have a plan.

But, if I’m going to be honest with you….

I am more than what you see.

I am more than what I write.

I am more than what I photograph.

But I am not here to prove all that.

While others find satisfaction in proving who they are as a person or a writer or a photographer, I find satisfaction in living a quiet and simple life.

Sad as it may sound.

But….

That’s me.

Until next time,
