I've not had a whole lot to say or report lately. No new news... just been pluggin' away at some of the "less exciting" behind-the-scenes tasks that have been piling up. And I've been spending a lot of time going over lots of photos I've shot but barely looked at since... lots of "prep work" for future things.
So, I let the "updates" go for a while here on my little blog. I guess I shouldn't have been surprised to find that, after steady growth previously, I finally logged in to notice... I've lost some followers. Yes, I know... as I said, I guess it shouldn't really surprise me at all... I guess it really didn't.
I do, however, find it both unfortunate and ironic. Unfortunate that, with so much out there to read/watch/do, people would still lose interest in my blog if it doesn't provide something "new" on a regular enough basis. But... that IS kinda how "blog world" is set, I guess?? So... ok, then perhaps that means I'll never have a "big blog." Oh well. I'll welcome those who are happy with me doing as I do.
Now the ironic part...
Great writers, scientists, artists, philosophers, etc... of the past were KNOWN for often locking themselves away in solitude to focus on their work or craft. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to say I'm on par with history's greats... I'm just saying that there is obviously a reason and a necessity for that solitude and focus sometimes in all these "types" of endeavors.
So it's ironic that, by isolating & "unplugging" (spending some time "recharging" and doing work for the next big announcment/news/event/project), I would LOSE followers. By doing the very thing that helps me improve, I lose supporters. That's what I find ironic.
But, I guess there are always those who "get it" and "get you" and those who just... don't. Don't understand or perhaps don't care to. C'est la vie.
To all those of you who understand me, or at least bear with me (heh heh) as I go through "bursts then breaks" while I learn "what works, what doesn't, and what to try next" with my photography efforts. I want to very sincerely say...
Thank You! It means A Lot to me. Thank You for your support... and for sticking around to watch as I learn "Life, Kenna, and this photography business thing." ;)
