Good morning friends, welcome to Monday morning, I hope you have a wonderful, blessed week. I took these photos in the backyard early this morning since I have zero new photography. Last night, I wrote a post in an external editor regarding this blog. It’s a draft at the moment but to sum it up, this blog is not what I wanted it to be. It’s not as successful as I had hoped for.
Of course, I have everything to do with this. My photos are pretty darn good for an amateur photographer, but the blog lacks a broader list of subjects such as more trips into the desert, or day trips where I could go to Death Valley, or Laughlin or Hoover Dam for example. The pandemic has plenty to do with this, of course, it’s not so smart to be out and about too much is it?
I’ve been using Instagram for at least three years now under the same account name and I very much enjoy the platform. I have over three hundred followers there, and many more of those followers interact with me on a daily basis than do here on WordPress where I have at this moment, two-hundred-fifty-one followers. But, only a small percentage ever come back to visit.
Last night, I was considering leaving this blog as-is and basically walking away from it regardless of the fact that there is a small fortune invested in it in terms of money and so much of my time putting posts together and all of the photography processing. Honestly, the investments are at this point, not really worth my time and effort. The other option is a complete, total takedown.
I need to think about this a little longer…
