I love this blog, but it stagnates. Often.
If I’m honest it’s because at some point I convinced myself that certain content wasn’t worthy of an “official” blog post. If I hadn’t spent hours slaving over prose and obsessing about message, it wasn’t good enough to send out into the world.
That kind of thinking hinders me. It means that if I don’t have gobs of hours to set aside for a polished post then I just won’t bother. What a shame. Smart creative people know that the good stuff comes not out of the thinking but the doing of it. Keep putting content out there instead of cowardly fantasizing about the perfect article/painting/photo/song/movie script, etc.
Isn’t it the spontaneity that makes a blog special after all? And why should my awesome Paris-loving followers wait 6 months between posts, when I’m constantly coming across things I want to share?
With that in mind, all I want to do today is post some of my photos I’m proud of. That’s it. I don’t know why it’s so hard for me to make it an official blog post. And I don’t know why I needed to preface them with the confession you just read.
I guess I needed to mention it so I’ll feel allowed to share more bite-sized posts in the future. Because hell this was meant to be a fun online journal of my Paris experience, not the damn travel section of the New York Times. Know your medium, Corey!
So expect to hear from this blog more often. And above all, enjoy these views of the fountains of Place de la Concorde. It was one of those days where the sun shined through a rainstorm. While tourists calmly posed in front of them I was running around like a madman trying to capture the light as best I could.
