I’ve started a new blog. A bit too late, considering that many say that blogging is dying. However, I believe that all writing remains essential, and in addition, it is easier to be indexed by Google. Thus, the chance that someone will read what I write here increases. On the other hand, it’s harder for me to produce videos for YouTube than writing to my blog.
Another reason I started this blog is my attempt to reduce my dependence on Facebook. Considering the new algorithms used by Facebook, my posts are not shown even to those in my group of friends.
Moreover, my friends’ posts do not appear on my wall. Instead, Facebook feeds me all sorts of crap that doesn’t interest me. All this makes me move to another platform where I have more control.
What I’m going to write about
Most of the blog is focused on photography. In my case, photography is both a passion and a source of income.
I have been involved in photography since I was a child; I think in 5th or 6th grade, I first got my hands on a camera. I sold my first images on Dreamstime in 2014 and since 2017, I am an ANC qualified photographer.
You can currently buy my photos from most stock photo agencies. The topics I address are mainly food and drinks, followed by isolated on white images, such as those used by online stores. In addition, I have images from technology and, last but not least, travel images in my portfolio.
I also intend to use the blog to promote my photos, both directly on the blog and by inserting links to my profile at stock agencies in image metadata.
As such, on the blog, you will find topics related to all these interests of mine. You will find many posts on the subject of photography. You will find recipes. I’m going to write all kinds of technical and DIY stuff. I plan to write about the journeys we make. Now the travel part is limited given the coronavirus pandemic, but I hope things will be better.
Here on the computer screen, you will find my thoughts, things that concern me, and all sorts of things that do not fall into a specific topic.
You may also find an affiliate link on the blog from time to time. Don’t worry; I’m not getting rich from this. The small amount of money that comes from affiliate marketing is used to cover hosting costs and other expenses related to the blog.
