Hi fellow bloggers
I started taking a class by Shimelle Laine from http://www.shimelle.com/ on Monday this week called Blogging for Scrapbookers. My intention since last year has been:
a) to become a better blogger as I enjoy the outlet it gives me in terms of creative expression as well as articulating my feelings and emotions on my life journey
b) in order to become a better blogger, I at the same time took the challenge of also becoming a better photographer (I'm a Nikon babe!)
c) lastly, all of above was born out of a love of SCRAPBOOKING! It is scrapbooking that led me into these two disciplines a) blogging and b) photography. I must admit though I am not very technically savvy. In fact, as I'm sitting typing this post I am so FRUSTRATED because it seems I'm challenged with both these passions that are turning into nightmares. I guess I put too many irons in the fire at the same time, because I never have enough time. I don't even have enough time to just do the daily prompts of this course! The same happened with the 10 week photography course thats coming to a close this Wednesday, and I am far off from even producing decent photos with the right lighting settings etc. etc. I will have to move off manual back to Auto untill I have head space to figure this all out, just so I can have SOME photo's because at the moment my scrapping has come to a standstill because I don't have decent photos to scrap the meories. And BTW, who wants to scrap a blurry photo. Ever heard of Depth of Field? Agggh!
OK, so enough of the wining now, but I just had to put it out there and get it out of my system or else I won't be able to sleep tonigh LOL (which will be in the next 10 min). Learning a new skill is very HARD! But we LIVE and we LEARN. Its much better than being anaethesized by the TV.
So wish my luck on my journey. I'm going to try and keep up with the pace, but if I don't ... I don't. And I need to take advise from the Master Scrapbookers like Shimelle, don't STRESS!! I'm STRESSING!!!!
