You learn something new every day.

I guess the same can be said for the blogs I read, I like for there to be a story, a growth and a journey (I love a good journey). I like to see a progression and I also like to think there has been one here on too.

I remember when I had my blog redesigned, I frantically emailed my developer asking her to add in an archive because I wanted everyone, regular readers or flying visits, to be able to flip back and see where it all started. To know that I started somewhere too. When I look back I’m painfully insecure and I haven’t a clue where I’m going with this but I just kept going.

The most fun thing that I always enjoy looking back on is my photography. I remember reading Olivia’s, Audrey’s and (for those who remember) Morven’s blogs, wondering and wishing to be able to take images as beautiful as theirs.

OK so I still spend hours wishing and wondering how the hell they do it but it ignited a motivation within me to do my best to learn how to use a camera.

Every day I learn something new, like on this occasion I learnt that actually, shooting in direct sunlight can be pretty dramatic and give your pictures some depth, after I’d spent the last 2 years searching out every shaded nook an cranny where I live. I love the way the light skims the rouches of this denim dress and kisses the highlights in my hair.

One of the most valuable things I’ve learnt from blogging is to keep learning, every day. The blogosphere evolves and changes at such speed I feel constantly on my toes, constantly absorbing information and constantly growing. I never knew learning could be so much fun (don’t tell my teachers I said that)!


FYI this dress is now 40% off!

    I’m right at the beginning, too, so I’m definitely going to go through your old archive. Hopefully it’ll make me realize that I have a future in blogging like you do!

    Ha, that’s the same thing with me. I have to be really interested in a subject or situation to be able to complete it. I can spend hours watching photography tutorials or camera reviews on YouTube but as soon as it’s time to pick up my Biochemistry textbooks, irrelevant things start to distract me.
    Learning is actually fun when you love what you’re learning. I guess I should learn to love my course instead of wishing I could just be done with it everyday. sigh.
