Q&A: My Interview with You

The past few years I’ve blogged to an audience of two. I would mainly create posts for my high school best friend. She would text me asking me when I was going to write something new. I began to write about everything I was in to; Photography, editing, film making, books, traveling, God. Soon other friends and co-workers were reading, they would stop me in the halls and want to talk about what I wrote last night.
This alarmed me, “Who else is reading?” My first reaction was to close up but I knew it was honesty that was drawing more readers.
I started to receive emails from young girls who wanted to become film makers, guys who wanted me to check out their videos to critique, people who were searching for hope, others who just wanted to be inspired.. Two blog readers became one thousand. 

I often wonder about you. I wonder who you are, how did you find me but most of all I wonder about your creative journey.



I’ve learned that sharing where you come from can help others. So here is my interview with you –
What is your hometown like?

What are you most passionate about?

What inspires you?

What subject can you talk hours about?

What is your dream job?

If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?

What was your first positive creative experience?

What do you blog about?

What is your message to the world?

I look forward to hearing from you 🙂

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.
