Blogging

I told myself I wasn’t allowed to blog until I completed this big project that I’m doing for a family. Since I still have two more days to complete it, I figured I could take a break and share a little.

Usually if I have a blog idea and then have dinner with a friend, I end up talking about that post idea to them. I am finding my blog is my way of having a conversation with the world.

To be honest, I’m not sure how much to share or not to share. I’ve been really inspired by Nick Campbell lately. He is a creative who does motion work, 3D stuff, blogging and lots of other things. He talked about the changes to his website and how he is going to post whatever he is in to.

Jon Acuff wrote a post about being truthful when it comes to blogging. Chris Guillebeau said it perfectly

Some of the people you expect to be your biggest supporters will disappoint you—and some of the people you rarely thought about, or didn’t even know existed, will turn out to be your true friends. This is how it works when you begin to share yourself with the world.

Since I’ll be looking for a new job soon in Vancouver, I wonder what they will think when they read some of my blogs. I enjoy creating videos, taking photos but most of all I love talking about God. I am no preacher or pastor but because I am an editor I am an observer. I find it interesting that all these great bloggers also face the same issue as myself, being truthful with themselves and with the world.

I once heard a person say, “Be the best you you know how to be.”

Have you faced any challenges when it comes to sharing yourself to the world? How are you overcoming that? Would love to know what you think about it. Jasmine Star suggest having two websites, one for business and then having it connect to your blog. Sounds nice and expensive. haha. I’m considering it.

  1. When it comes to blogging, I tend to just write. My main goal is to get my feelings and thoughts out there in the world, as well as my writings. I don’t believe my classmates of colleagues know about my blog, but still, I would not mind if they did.
    In the end, I have nothing to hide and everything I post is for everyone to read.

    1. I like your freedom to write Natasha. In order for me to write I have to block out faces and pretend no one will read them. haha. Its funny which blog post get the most viewed. It usually the ones I struggle with sharing. Its even more strange when Im walking down the hallway at work and my co-worker says, “Nice Blog last night”. I suddenly feel like they read my diary. haha. Most of all I write to encourage others. I look forward to reading your post. 🙂

      1. I’ll admit, I’ve never had a coworker or anyone say that, but like I said before; I don’t think they know about it, or are particularly interesting in reading English, for that matter. Writing to encourage others is great, but don’t forget to do it for yourself, too.
        I hope you enjoy my blog!

  2. Mon this post is great, I go through the same thoughts. Especially since I am getting so many more friends that don’t go to church and are from my political circle of friends at uni so are super critical/intelligent, so I don’t know how much to share without deterring them from Christianity or without losing my credibility with them as a serious writer. So I have found that for a while I changed the way that I wrote and the freedom of blogging was inhibited.

    So I like that you used that quote because it encapsulates the importance of being yourself, whether people will approve or not. God has used it to work positively anyway, I have written about things about my faith and beliefs and it has incited some of those friends to ask me questions about why I believe what I believe and it has opened doors for a good godly conversation and challenge what I really believe, that what I believe is because of Him and not some fanciful regurgitation of someone’s revelation.

    Ps. I love your blogs and I love when you talk about Jesus. But often times, your pictures just show Him anyway, they have depth and are a light to the world.

    1. Angelene you have been one of my faithful readers, because of your encouragement I kept on writing. Your blog post has a heart to see the world change. You see the beauty where others look past. I think as we use our freedom and voice, it will also free others. I had no idea you struggled with openings too, your post seems to freely talk about love and hope in Jesus. I have learnt from experiences that we chose who we attract. I want to attract deep thinkers and artist who will use what God put in their hands to help others. So I am glad my blog post attract you 🙂
