I used to have a blog.
No, not this blog. A different one.
It went from a place to share my photos and stories, to a photography blog with tutorials and reviews.
It was pretty famous for a while until the Social Network Experiment killed it.
I was blogging along, but more and more people were jumping onto Facebook and they were siren calling me to come over.
I tried to move the experience from the blog to Facebook, but it was not the same. The people that followed me on Facebook were not the same people looking for information and pictures on my blog.
I know, I know… You are probably thinking that I was using the social networks wrong and that’s why it failed.
The reality is that, I never wanted to be on a “Social Network”. Maybe it was the Steppenwolf in me…
I have since then, left behind Facebook, twitter, instagram, tumblr, etc.
I guess I did it at a good time too…
I was reading this article about Instagram (and therefore Facebook) Censorship and realized one of the main reasons why I did not wanted to be on a “Social Network”.
The liberating aspect of a Blog, is that it’s a platform where anybody can stand on their our soapbox, scream at the top of their lungs their opinions and no one, absolutely no one, can tell you what to do and/or say.
I pay for this space. You find this content and if you don’t like it; move along. There are plenty of other things on the internet.
This is mine and mine along. No one can censor me. No one can cancel my account for what I say or the images that I post (Well, maybe SquareSpace might have an opinion).
So, I decided to come back to blogging.
More frequently, that is. I need this outlet and those other places are becoming a festering pool of bad news, bad stories and entitled people.
If you are here, welcome! Hope you like what you see. If this is your first time, I hope you come back, I promise there will be more…
