limited blogging

Hello everybody!

A couple of quick lines as I listen to a webinar whilst sorting out my paperwork and accounts on a long bank holiday weekend when most people are enjoying a break ;).  First of all a word to the budding photographers... if you want to go into photography because you love photography forget it!  Being a photographer is a business, you are a businessman/woman all of the time, and a photographer only a little of the time.  If you have no idea of how to deal with people or don't have any business skills, or need your other half to do your accounts, then think again, this may not be for you!  

The other thing I wanted to say today is that I'm aware I'm not blogging enough.  I just don't have the time to do all I'd like to do unfortunately and I often tend to fall asleep at the pc at the end of the day, which is my best time for writing.  That's not good for my google rankings, I know but then...  I noticed there are a few people who are following what I post to the n'th degree. One in particular has been sort of doing the same sort of stuff as me, in a similar way, to the point of also copying my BNI strap line (not sure how that happened!).  I'm sorry I actually got to know, as I'm a firm believer of 'ignorance is bliss', but I stooopidly followed a link from one of my facebook friends.... sigh!!  

So I've been holding back on blog posting, no more blaming lack of time and energy, the brakes are on! because I want to have my own personal space in this very competitive world for a little while.   I'm doing this just for some breathing space, because the ideas I have are not exclusive, and I've probably picked bits and pieces up from other places, just that it's very irritating to find the kid next door doing the same!

I've always been a leader not a follower.  I gain inspiration from stuff that is very remote from what I live and breathe every day.  When in Malta, I used to look to the UK, now I'm here I look to other places, people and situations.  I am sort of pleased to be plagiarised and get lots of hits from colleges and uni's where people analyse my work to bits but please, for your sake, be ORIGINAL, it's more fun and pays more :)

If you are a client and want to see more of my portfolio, get in touch, we can meet and I can show you stuff I've not published, over a nice cup of coffee or two :)

Peace out for now, will blog tomorrow! xxx
