When it comes to blogging or posting online, I have always been one of those people that second guesses themselves. I am always so careful with what I post as I think I just want everything to be perfect. This might come from me being a perfectionist but it also comes down to the fact that I don’t want people judging me.
Whilst it’s perfectly okay to be careful with how much you put online, I feel like for me to be able to move forward with blogging, I need to just post whatever I want and be a bit more reckless with myself and my images.
You might have noticed that I’ve been trying to change up my photography style for a while now. This is something that has been a long time coming as I am way too picky for my own good and compare myself to others endlessly.
I am one of those people who finds it hard to release control and it is hard trying to get people to take photos of me as no one will be able to capture what I want exactly,
A lot of the time I think it also comes down to not having the latest things (such as clothes or homeware), the nicest things or being that confident in front of the camera (yet).
For the month ahead, I’m going to really try and post myself to post a lot, but to also post images that I am happy with that feel more “me”. This includes photos of myself as well.
I love following people on Instagram who you feel like you know because they’re active and have so much personality come through in their photos and on their stories. I’ve been trying to get more active on Instagram stories recently by sharing my days and taking you along with me when I’m out or sharing PR packages and various items that I buy. I think engagement in this way is so important and I have loved creating lots of stories for my Instagram rather than being quiet on there which is something I hopefully want to continue with.
The more I achieve this I think the better I’ll feel about it. I think it’s a good idea to push myself in this way and I think it’ll give me more confidence offline as well as online. One thing I have noticed is that I need to up my editing when it comes to portraits – any tips?
Do you like to see the person (& more personality) behind a blog?
