I've been on a creative jag lately. Don't know if it's the warm weather, or the pharmaceuticals, but something has gotten me motivated to express myself. I've also been inspired by Eric Kim and his attitude towards the use of social media, or lack thereof. Anyway, I've been making a concerted effort to utilize my website blog on a more regular basis. I like the control over my imagery and words that it affords, and I must admit, I do enjoy seeing some additional traffic to my website as a result.
To that end, I've been updating the "back pages" of my website, specifically the ARCHIVE section. Older work that I wanted to share, but also a rolling visual diary, as it were, which harkens back to my earlier days of photoblogging on Tumblr. "The Unguided Tour" section will be a place where I will continue to share images that would most likely have ended up on Instagram, but I really want to ween myself off of that platform as a primary source of image sharing.
I'm curious to hear your thoughts on the pros and cons of using social media to share your work. Let's talk about it!
