After nearly a year of blogging and trying to spread the word through Facebook and Twitter, I am starting to realise I can’t do them all. No sorry, I don’t want to do them all.
Most of my blog posts, I am getting something off my chest. Its not always a rant, sometimes it is to give advice and other times it just helps me to feel productive. So It almost seems counter intuitive to then try and promote them.
Maybe its as my wife says to me, “Your just strange”.
I have done one previous post called Get it Done on PhotoHelper, that may explain better why I’m getting fed up with it. The penny finally drop last week, when I spent a whole afternoon making a 2 minute film. I had fun producing it and was busy uploading it Facebook, when the self-doubt crept in.
I really wanted to win a Kessler Crane Pocket Dolly(pictured above), it is a cracking piece of kit, but I still couldn’t bring myself to enter the competition. Purely because the winner was going to be decided by the video that got the most “Likes”.
I don’t want to ask my friends and family to “Like” my film, that would bring far to much attention to me. Or maybe I was just afraid my film wouldn’t be liked, or that my Auntie Betty would snigger and say “I knew you were strange!” on the Facebook comments. A week later and I no longer care, so I will post it here where there is no “Like” button and only the foolhardy dare to tread!
So with no further ado I introduce 3 Angles,
“You’ve got to be in it to win it” but sometimes just feeling productive is enough for me.
