Spring Cleaning not really in the normal sense but in the mental sense. Inspired by my friends Jason and Dan, I am going to work on stepping back from Social Media for a while. Not leaving it, as I think that is just too unrealistic, but trying to put it in perspective. I will focus more time here, trying to write and share in a deeper way and continue to concentrate on my Photo Essays, which I believe are a great way for me to blend images and words.
Starting March 1, my goal is to only check FB twice a day, once in the morning and once at night and even then it is to only respond to items relevant to me. I want to slip away from the deep dark hole of spending hours searching for interesting things without ever giving anything the mental time and effort it deserves.
I will continue to Tweet as I like that platform.
I will do away with G+ (yep, sorry, once again). Still on the fence about LN
I am amending my little competition for the Porcelain Rocket bags in that stories and images will only be shared primarily here and not on FB. This is really a great piece of kit and I hope someone wants it.
I am committing to my craft and my new found love of Rangefinders. The Leica MM has completely changed my perspective on contemplative shooting and I am stoked to push that a bit farther.
I want to write more about gear that helps you get out doors. Not just to write about gear, but to share my hard won experience from countless days spent in the wild. I look forward to testing the new Fuji X-T1 for a week as I think it could make for the ultimate adventure based camera. Lots of great things being written about it.
And lastly, I want to work on engaging a meaningful dialogue with those that want to enter the conversation.
Here is to 2014!
