I have a question for you

I’ll be honest with you I’ve recently struggled writing content for my blog. I wanted to post fragments of my thoughts about feminism last weekend but the fragments didn’t quite come together in the way I wanted them to, in short the pie wasn’t ready to be served so that’ll have to wait as the subject is sensitive and I’d rather get it right than just do it!

I’ve always wanted to post words that I’m content with. I generously pour emotions through words but fully acknowledge the fact that it might not be everyone’s cup of tea but when I hit publish I need to feel proud of what I’ve posted, not just now but always.

I see a lot of content on social media, I follow a lot of blogs and people and inevitably hold a view for each of them, while the amount of content is drifting swiftly from more to much more, the quality is taking a massive hit. I hold a critical view about other bloggers so I’m constantly and consciously sieving my content till I’m happy with the remains that get published.

So while I have been quiet on Instagram and my blog lately, it’s probably fair to say that I’ve been increasingly thinking about what people would like to see on my blog?
 The question is, are we all unconsciously floating towards posts with no content but beautiful pictures, are words not important anymore to broker or buffer any interaction, are we really a visual generation that is slowly but surely detaching itself from words. Books to e-books to audio books, we are definitely moving away from a generation that took time to  read, or shall we say have already moved on? With several minutes spent daily scrolling through picture squares of people’s lives and work, words are looked over, or maybe overlooked?

 Really interested in knowing what drives you to read a post, and the question is obviously only for those who got this far.

  1. Words are an important part of telling the story of the photographs… my question to you would be what was it about the photographs from this shoot that influenced the words you write…

    1. Hi Jen, I think the idea emerged from trying to do justice to the pictures, good pics need to be accompanied by good words but the question is what is good in the view of the audience xx

  2. Words are as important as photos are.Different individuals seek happiness from different things. I read blogs because I like reading and I like the positivity I get from it. I wouldn’t select to read a blog with negative content in it.

  3. Imagine a story book with loads of images and no words in it…!!?? Words bring more life to those pictures. I love viewing pictures but have always love reading more…. for me the content matter more than images….

  4. you look like princess Jasmine in these photos and all credits to the talented photographer. As far as content over photos is concerned, photos are an important tool to help the reader stay connected to the story. your blogs on being cacti and being comfortable in your skin and many more reflect your ideas in your pictures as well. I am glad that you have this clarity and make sure that you do justice both to your thoughts and to your audience by providing only the best of your work… Great going.

  5. I love the way you correlate words with your pictures. They say a picture says thousand words but in the same way when you read beautifully woven article or story, you can imagine that thing happening for real in front of your eyes. XX
