Photoblog is a form of sharing pictures using the format of a blog. I initially didn’t plan to do a daily photoblog on my website. My plan then was to blog about my travels and the photos that comes with it. I still have the same goal as of this writing. However, it was pretty challenging to me to come up with a whole article in one sitting so I ended up only posting a couple of blogs per month. I am that slow in organizing the write-ups even when I have tons of idea in my mind.
A Turn of Events
After I posted My Sahara Desert Experience, inspired me to be more creative because I got motivated when fellow bloggers would liked my post and leave a comment. Then a brilliant idea hit me. I can continue blogging without stressing myself too much by posting a photo daily in my website. It started the ball rolling!
Challenges Along The Way
I didn’t say it was too easy. There missed posting on some days because I was traveling (I don’t have wifi all the time). There are days that I don’t know which photo to post. Or that it takes me a long time to decide which one to post. And a much longer time to come up with the story that comes with the photo. But it did work and I still continue to photoblog up until this day (hurrah!). Comments and likes from fellow bloggers still makes me smile and I feel lucky that I belong to the WordPress blogging community. 🙂
Upping the Ante
Now, I am challenging myself to post an article weekly to stir up my creativity. This week I joined the Weekly Writing Challenge for inspiration on what to write (yey!) and I’ll think of something creative for next week. Cheers!
It is addictive – although I am a little concerned that it can be a like for a like. But either way I enjoy it and have met some great people.
You’re right. It’s a great way to meet people. 🙂
I am noticing that once I started posting photos with my blog posts, it has become a regular thing. Now, I am finding I need to try and stay away from the photos sometimes and just write a blog post. But, all in all WordPress is something I am really enjoying. Great post!
Thanks! We are on the same page. 🙂
It’s all good fun, many of us are on the same journey, I’m not sure where it will lead me but I enjoy the camaraderie. The fact that I know others are watching pushes me to improve.
Same sentiments here. Keep on blogging! 🙂
