Lately I've been learning a lot about my personal capacity, or lack thereof, in my daily life. My life is busy. I have a family. I work as a photographer to help with the bills. I work as a web developer to help with more bills (I do live in San Francisco after all). I am building a new organization/community called ASH that invites companies and individuals to come together around shared stories and experiences. I have personal creative projects I am working on. I regularly meet with and mentor artists around the Bay Area. I have a lot on my plate.
When I began the redesign process for my new website I wrestled with the idea of reincorporating a blog as a core part of my web presence. In a past life of my website I had started a blog and I thought it was pretty good. I would post photos from personal projects I was doing (I didn’t have any paying clients at the time) and write down a few thoughts to complement the photos. I would post regularly, sometimes even daily. And I would rejoice whenever someone left a comment, even if that someone was my wife cheering me on. Everything was going well.
