It's that time again. Yawn... Stretch... Zzz...
Is anyone else feeling the end of January being a bit sluggish? This past week felt more like a walk to school in the snow (uphill, both ways). And with the daunting feeling that what I'm doing doesn't really matter to anyone else but me, I've had a hard time staying focused. That statement is completely self-involved, I know, so I want to give a huge thanks to all of you who've been following me and leaving your comments, but I'm just being honest.
Flickr's quite a conundrum to me. I can't quite figure it out. There are so many different levels of users on flickr and on each level exists an immense amount of diversity. From top-notch professionals to modern hipsters to complete noobs, it's really quite an interesting mix of people. But the thing that I can't seem to put my finger on is how some people draw in hundreds, even thousands, of view and comments on their photos that to me seem mediocre. My problem is I want to be seen and be heard and be recognized, but that type of success doesn't come overnight.
The misleading part about the internet is that you can stumble on someone's music/photos/blog/whatever and instantly feel like you're a complete failure. The internet lacks all the blood, tears and sweat that goes in to making a name for yourself. So that's why I'm here, putting in day after day to track my life as I make a name for myself. Maybe I'll be something, maybe I'll be nothing. But whatever the outcome I hope it inspires someone.
