It sounds corny, but I'm a big new year, new me kind of guy. I know the majority of the population hates people like me, but I can't help it. In fact, to be totally honest, I'm worst than those people. I'm a fresh start Monday kinda guy, I hold off lifestyle changes until the 1st of the month and I even get excited when these two days combine. If the 1st of the month is on a Monday... Oh it's game over.
Living like this obviously has it's cons, but we won't get into those. It's pros however, we can talk about. It gives me a chance to put things in perspective. I often ask myself "Am I doing better than last month?". And if the answer is no then I figure out why and make the necessary changes. This year though I asked myself a different question, I wanted to know how my blog would do this year vs last year, it was no longer a month to month conversation but a year to year outlook. Needless to say, I crushed last year, and since doing so I've slacked and off and became kind of lazy.
I would sit down every night and try to blog, but I couldn't, I just didn't have it in me. It wasn't that I couldn't think of topics to talk about, it was just that I couldn't formulate what I was thinking to match what I was writing. I'm not sure what it was, but as the days went on I knew I was waiting for the 4th quarter.
It sounds like an excuse, but again, I'm that guy. Dates motivate me and here I am at 12 midnight writing away. I have so much planned. In this post header I have Exciting Changes Coming Soon, but in all honesty, it's going to be the same content, only in a more structured manner.
I've noticed that I like consistency, regardless of what outlet it is. I like when podcast post on a certain day, I like when my favorite YouTubers upload on time and I look forward to TV shows every week. I want to give you guys that same excitement. I want you to know when a particular blog post is coming. So, I made a schedule. Now before you check it out I want to say this, my random spontaneous blog post, they'll still be coming, you'll still get the First Impression series, Camera Therapy as well as my famous rants, so for those who enjoyed those, don't worry they aren't going anywhere.
The following schedule is a rough draft and is subject to change, mostly through addition, not subtraction.
Sunday: Raw Photo Challenge
Monday: Visual Inspiration
Tuesday: A Tip In Street Photography
Friday: Promote Friday
Saturday: Here's What You Created: RPC Recap
Exciting right? That's 5 guaranteed post per week, on top of what I've already been doing!!!
That's not all though! How many of you have been following my YouTube channel? Well if you have then you know I post about 3-5 videos there per week, expect that to keep coming, but with some new improved quality. Also in addition to vlogs I'll be posting camera reviews, reactions on photography news and doing some street photography critiques, you'll learn more about that tomorrow.
So yeah guys, just wanted to make this quick post to let you all know I'm still alive and that I have a lot planned for this blog. Let me know what you think about the changes or what I like to call, upgrades. Oh and while we're all here perhaps you all can do me a favor. Answer this question, should I invest money into a drone (GoPro Karma) or podcast equipment, think about that and let me know! Here's to a strong start and best of luck to those who are starting with me!
