It has been a crazy time lately and I’ve made some decisions. It is time to start changing things up for the following year. I don’t want 2019 to be full of the same disappointments as the last few years.
Last week I mentioned that I want to find a new direction with this blog and now I am ready to share with you what my plans are. I want to get back to this blog being more about my art practice and how I go about it. As I said last week, I don’t want to compete with all the other photography blogs out there and in the end I think of myself as an artist who uses the medium of photography. I’ve always been an artist, I can recognise that, and there will be a blog post about that at some stage. Please note that Monochrome Madness will continue as it has.
For quite some time I’ve really struggled with how I should do this blog. I’ve been at a loss and everything I try seems to take so much time, or is similar to other work I’m doing.
I thought about monetizing it, get paid to blog, but that hasn’t really happened, so it seems almost pointless. I hate doing the hard sell, and that has meant that getting money for it is even harder. Ultimately I have to wonder if it really is for me.
