I’ve been hiding in the shadows this month. Not much shooting and not much sharing going on. I’ve had only 1 post this month. I haven’t been ignoring the blog, just not sharing. In fact, my mind has been racing and I’ve been struggling to get it out.
These past few weeks I’ve been obsessing, to a point of unhealthiness, about gear, travel, commitments, work, traffic, business, riding, etc. After an incredible few months resulting in record all time traffic here last month, I have taken April to exhale and think.
The thing I have been pondering the last few weeks is what is my purpose? Why do I keep this blog going? I’ve seen so many talented folks share their gifts, find their way, and then lose focus and direction. Success brings new options. I’ve sold some imagery this month. I’ve gotten several advertising requests for this blog. I have ideas about how to bring more traffic. Gear comparisons. Stories. Challenges. But…I just don’t want to make this blog a “job”. That is my personal challenge. I like to go deep with everything I do and I often get in too deep.
I have again settled on the idea that my purpose in sharing here at ImagineGnat is to inspire folks to get out there. Chase dreams. Challenge yourself to be better. Learn something new. Do what you love. Do not be afraid. Go.
Hope to see you out there somewhere.
