Projecting Realness and Blogging My Truth
Shooting fashion images for blog content is never perfect and sometimes you never reach the shots that you were imagining in your head, but it's a heck of a lot of fun! Same goes for any other type of created content.
As a lifestyle blogger, I've always tried to portray a realistic life lived. I have my own crap I'm going through, I'm not a size 00 model, nor do I have thousands of dollars to shell out on designer handbags and I'm struggling to discover who I am and what I want every day (just like the rest of humanity).
(These dogs are really cute).
I try my best not to stage events in order to craft material and most often find myself just taking my camera to every event I do attend in order to write about them. Occasionally, I'll have a friend who enjoys taking Outfit of the Day (#OOTD) pics and we will arrange a shooting time. However, any event I blog about was attended out of my own interest and true passion for the issue or activity.
I feel like this happens as you blog more frequently for years and years. You suddenly run out of material and desperately seek it out. I'm convinced that the best thing we can do as bloggers is not blog when we don't have anything worth writing about.
Does having writer's block make you a better writer? Do you think it's important for bloggers to develop content whether or not they feel passionate about something in the moment?
