After so many years of leaving Wordpress and solely using Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to showcase my work, I am back on the Internet thanks to the fine folks at Squarespace. After doing an artist showcase in May, I realized that I needed to once again have a website (not social media accounts) that I can showoff the best work and in an online location that has a professional .com name. So, it was time to launch justinreidphotography.com! Also, since they have a feature that allows it's customers/users to blog, I thought (once again) I'd give blogging a try.
But Seriously, Why I Am Blogging...Again?! Well, I've always been interested in doing so; especially seeing other photographer's blogs (or photo journals as they call them). I thought it is a pretty cool way of getting to know another photographer and I want people to get to know who I am. Reason I'd probably take the photo journal approach and not "writing" blogs is because I'm not a man of many words; that and I think photos can tell better stories. I've failed at it before because I didn't think I had "blog-worthy" things to write about or just plain laziness. But this time, for me, I need to see this through.
So, yes Internet, I am back. Don't pop the Sparkling Cider yet in celebration, let's do that on September 12th; you know, the day I receive a birthday cake. Then we can attack two birds with one stone.
