One thing I hate doing is SCHEDULING. I don’t know what is about it that every time I know I should schedule something it never gets done. I feel the same way with charts a graphs.
For me in order for this blog to be successful I need to have a schedule of a day and time to post. I wonder “how can youtubers stick to there schedule of uploading everyday at a certain time and still be popular.”
After reading many articles of starting blogs I have come to the decision I have been doing this wrong.
All the articles were staying was “that when starting a blog I should post once every two weeks and grow each month in adding posts”. I have just been posting once a week and its hard for me.
Sometimes I don’t have the time to sit and write. Or i’ll try to write two posts so that I have one ready for the next week. That was working but now i’m sitting at my desk writing this because I forgot to have one ready.
I wanted to upload one post every Monday. Now i’m going to keep researching and come up with a schedule that I can work with, and not eat my brain out because Monday came so fast.
I’m doing this to keep my sanity. I guess I can write this to all the new people blogging. Don’t just rush into something before doing research. I’m now learning this the hard way with blogging, and taking care of fish lol…. Let me explain.
Just like blogging I went into the fish hobby blind and now I have bought so many fish for my tank, because I didn’t know what I was doing. I didn’t do my research and get all the facts.
I did the same with blogging. I didn’t read articles on how to start a successful blog. I just went into it. Not a good idea. I pledge to try harder from my mistakes not to do them again, and to do things right!
In all that’s been said i’m not going to upload every week, but try to aim for once every two weeks, to keep my sanity.
In my first blog post at the end I mentioned about having “Photography Blood”. I had said that one day I would write about it and what it means to me. I think I was born with it in my veins to be a photographer. I know it may sound funny but I believe it.
The only people in my family that are photographers are me, my grandfather, and my great-great-great grandfather. Hence I feel that we all have photography blood in our veins.
Growing up I didn’t know what I wanted to be. Some people say that they want to be firefighters or a veterinarian. Me I had no clue…. It wasn’t till I got older that I was figuring it out.
I had different ideas but nothing set. I wanted to start my own business making little box’s for weddings and party’s. Then I wanted to be a barker or a chef. I also wanted to make jewelry. I’m still not sure how photography became a part of me.
I’m glad that I’m pursuing this dream of a photographer because I can capture moments of peoples lives and mine. All of the great moments that you may not be able to capture again, for a living. You don’t have to be a photographer with the title to be one.
You can be one yourself. You don’t need a fancy to be one either. I don’t, I use my iPhone most of the time to take pictures cause its what I have to work with right now. The meaning of having photography blood reach’s deep inside me I may not have all the words to describe it but its me, its a part of me, and who I am.

I have written a book. No this isn’t self promo telling how you can buy it. I’m here to say I haven’t finished it. It has taken me a over a year or two to finish. Nothing new is coming to mind.
I keep reading what I already have, and rewritten certain parts, but no new stuff to go along the story-line.
“I Have Writers Block”
The worst thing is that months have gone by and I still haven’t finished another chapter. Sometime writers get stuck with the last chapter. I’m stuck right in the middle the good part when everything starts to come together. Horrible I know.
I start to think “How can I write a blog, and not finish a book, or i’ll think that i’m board of it so iv’e stopped writing cause it’s not good.” I end up staring at the pages of my note book or laptop and I go to write but nothing happens. Instead of sounding all gloom and doom of my writer block. Maybe its the best and I need to move on and one day I can pick up where I left off in the middle and start new.

I have realized that I haven’t done a blog post in a long time. For me that’s not good because I have been trying to have a schedule and be productive. In order for me to be productive I had to change the way I did thing’s and looked at life.
Many people say that “life is two short so make the best out of it”. I believe that in a sense but saying and doing are two different things. Instead of saying and not doing I looked at it in a different light.
“If I (personally) sit around doing nothing, what have I accomplished in life.”
For people that can mean something else, but for me that is what I have to change.
From now to when ever that’s my goal, to make the best out of everyday. One person had said ” If you are doing something you enjoy, and your not excelling your not going anywhere. Do something else that can grow your success”
” Sometime’s you have to change to make things better. ”
I have learned that the only reason I may not be happy, or not doing everything I want to do is because I need to make the right changes. If your not understanding what i’m saying let me break it down.
You may be flying through the sky’s because everything is going well, but then while your flying something gets in your way, and you think everything is over. Here is the point sometimes the things that get in our way we have to remove. It could be a friend, your job, or where you live. Get rid of it!
If you don’t that could be holding you back on your Productive Life.
I had recently gone away on a day trip to Ocean City, Maryland. That’s were I took that picture. It was a nice get away from the world. Just me and my family one with nature. Everyone needs one, with all the stress and commotion we have in our lives we need the time to sit and enjoy what we have.
Never have I realized that until now. That we may think we are doing alright, and then something happens and we can’t handle it. If we just would take the time to enjoy what we have and distress we will be fine.
Find something that when your at your lowest low that will get you back up. It may be a certain song, a video, or even a friend. Something that you can count on when you need it.
Back to my trip. You can picture it with the right words so here it goes. The sea was a dark blue and shiny from the sun hitting it with its luster. The water was chilly because it was in October . The sand was a dark tan filled with dog prints and people’s footprints from there walks. The tide was far out so it seemed like you could walk for miles on the sand with out touching the sea.
Can you picture it?
It’s nice to take pictures to capture the moments that may seem like you will remember, but are nice to remember with the feeling you had when you were there.
I have never been good at writing. So I decided to make a blog. Not the best idea that I have, but I had to do one for a school project. So why not?! I really don’t know how this is going to go, how i’m going to have the time to write this, what i’m going to write, and even if people are going to read this. I’m just a girl at a desk writing to no one. I guess I can talk about the picture at the top if you can see it. I took it last year on a three day trip to New York. I took some nice photo’s, well at least I think their nice. I had an adventures time there. The sky was a light blue, not a single cloud in the sky. Me and my family went in this side street, and sat on some benches looking over the river into the city. That’s when i took this photo. I really love photography I don’t know why. Maybe it’s just the way you can take a photo, and to everyone else it can mean and feel a different way. You can make the photo tell a different story with every click of the camera. It gives me chills just thinking about it. I had found out recently by my grandfather that my great -great -great-grand father was a photographer also and how my grandfather has all of his old camera’s. I may post about it one day when I have the chance. I think it’s cool how with out even knowing I have photography blood in my veins. I may make that a post also ” Photography Blood” sounds good!
