So what am I going to be writing about in my photography blog?

These are my initial thoughts on the content of my photography blog going forwards from here.

Weekly content

Web page update - essential to keep the momentum going with the updating of all the pages on my website.

A general photography post - a bit longer about something photography related currently on my mind.

Stock – this includes actually getting my stuff out onto the stock markets. Photos and videos.

Gear - each week I am going to write about a piece of photography gear/ non-photography gear/ something of interest.

  • New images – Building
  • New images – Travel
  • New images – Dorset
  • New images – Hampshire
  • Fifth feed - to be decided.

These 5 new images will form the output to all my social media channels

Image of the Week

Video - after the success of the videos of the Red Arrows at the Bournemouth Air Festival 2017 I am going to add more videos to my You Tube channel. And also add my 4K videos to Adobe Stock. I will explain - trust me it will make sense.

Monthly things

  • Top 10s. I like top 10s. And they are great as pieces of content that work SEO wise.
  • Talking of which - SEO - I will write about that on a monthly basis. 
  • Luminar - I want to get into this new software for the PC. Gently.
  • Luminosity Masks - I need to give these a go. 
  • Photoshop - something new/ useful/ interesting.
  • Lightroom- something new/ useful/ interesting.
  • You Tube - my You Tube Channel
  • Website - news on what is on my website. What I like. What I don't like. WHat I need to do.
  • News - just any photography news that took my interest.
  • On location - pictures of a location where I have taken some pictures. Great to show my photography gear in action.
  • Plotagraph - what I have come up with in Plotagraph this month on my iPad Pro.

I am going to play around with this over the month of September and then 1st October have a new plan. 

And no I have not forgotten those pictures of Santorini.

And another thing I need to do is publish everything in the draft folder on my blog - prepare for a week of completely random posts at the end of September.

The latest change to the content of my photography blog - evolution

OK. I have to confess. I have let the amount of content on my blog get out of hand. 

How did I realise this? 

Four Hour Work Week.  I am listening to this on my iPhone. Again. I bought this from Amazon.

"4-Hour Work Week: Escape the 9-5, Live Anywhere and Join the New Rich." By Tim Ferriss.

And each time I listen another nugget of gold goes into my head and every now and then a positive action comes out of it. 

Now I am nowhere near taking regular short retirements, but there is some great stuff in there. 

I am listening to this book whilst driving.

And I got back to my office one day and thought - I have let my blog drive the photography work I do - (I have to qualify this to being the photography work I do in addition to other work). 

The idea of my photgoraphy blog was to write about what I am doing. It was meant to be a natural extension of me pushing my photography skills and knowledge. 

But recently I feel that my blog has been in the driving seat. 

Now that I have realised this it is time to put my blog back where it should be - the output of the things I need to do to make my photography better. 

My photography blog is going to be less structured in the future, around a range of things I want to talk about each month, but also aligned with my business priorities going forward. 

Hopefully you will find the content more interesting, more spontaneous, more fun. And definitely more varied.
