Pep Talk - Feeling Like You Suck At Blogging?

Now I'm not one to toot my own horn or anything, but I actually feel like a I look a little bit like a real life blogger in these pictures. First of all I would like to thank my Mum, my Dad, my hamster I had when I was 5... No, but really I feel like I owe a lot of it to my new camera the Olympus Pen E-PL7! (As well as some new found confidence and my perfect new outfit location). I will be sure to whip out a good old Olympus Pen post answering all the questions I couldn't find when I was spending endless nights googling about it trying to justify the massive price tag soon.

I've always had a love/hate relationship with blogging, as you can probably gather if you're not a first timer here, and after falling head over heels with Youtube I actually considered putting this little blog to bed, but theres something about a little old outfit post or new in accessory review which just screams picture ready over video. Photography, editing, styling, these are all things that come naturally to me. Posing, modeling, smiling for a camera, these are not. If I could have someone model on my blog for me, that would be great but unfortunately thats not how these things work. Unlike most bloggers I am not the first girl to whip out a camera at a party, I find it a chore to take a selfie, and I never remember to suck in and put my shoulders back in a group picture, but can I have some credit for sheer persistence and effort. I know I am not the most consistent over here, nor am I the prettiest, and most natural in front of a camera but I give it my best shot, and after seeing how far I've come recently, I really really want to keep trying!

Now I hope you brought some crackers with you, because things are about to get a little cheesy...

So if you're feeling a little deflated recently, or like what you put out isn't good enough, or consistent enough, or you just down right are having an 'ugly' day (and hate what you are doing in picture when you thought you were doing something completely different), then hop in my little boat with me. We all have our weaknesses but we can power through this together, and maybe get a little better, and when you look back at how much you've grown and developed over the years you might be surprised. You have to remember that blogging not only showcases a skill, it teaches you so many valuable things. I have learnt so much about lighting and photography, and even writing for that matter from blogging, this isn't just a hobby it's a free life class.
