BATTLE OF THE BLOG

So blogging. Ugh! I have a semi love-hate relationship with you right now. If I’m being honest a lot of it comes from the IG algorithm. I wish they would just go back to chronological order already. The algorithm favors the big “guys” virtually making it impossible for the rest of us to grow. I won’t get into all of the nuances but the more likes you get the more likely you are to be seen on the feed of new people as well as your current followers. But if people aren’t seeing you how can they like your post? Whatever (insert eye roll).
Aside from that, blogging is very time consuming and sadly the more I climb that good old corporate ladder the less free time I have. I’m not one of those girls who has a blogger husband taking my photos while I’m out doing my day to day activities. I have to schedule shoots, pick 4-5 outfits, scout the location, pack the outfits (think packing for a vacation and how annoying that is...this is essentially the same thing), shoot the looks, o and let’s not forget about changing in the car trying to avoid the strangers walking by judging. And then there’s the final step of finding time to put the post together! In fact I’m sitting here now writing this post on a red eye instead of sleeping! 
So maybe I’m just tired and cranky at the moment. Because as much as I’m complaining and for as long as I’ve been feeling this way, I’m still going strong! Well strong might be an overstatement, but I haven’t given up!! I really love shooting and working with talented photographers like Brittany of Work It Berk. And what other outlet do I have to tell people that parasols are my new favorite summer accessory?! And how would I document travel with no blog or IG. 
So for now I’m here, but for later? We shall see...
