Blogging 101; A Penny for Your Thoughts

Third day of Blogging 101

The assignment for the day is to write the post I wanted to write when I began blogging or as I see it; write a post about why I created this blog.

Why do I blog?

I have for many years been passionate about photography. It have been some photos during the years. Many photos with my kids, my garden and so on. I actually got in to the blogging world when I saw an announced challenge. The challenge was about to take 365 photos on different themes, one each day of the year (2013). That was my first blogging experience. The blog was about the challenge and my goal was to improve my creativity and photo technique. The blog was written in Swedish.

After almost 11 months of publishing photos every day I created this blog, “kerlundphoto”. The main purpose for  this was that I actually wanted to have a blog written in english. I wanted to reach more people and also create more communication opportunities. Another purpose was that I wanted to continue my improvement in photography and still have the pressure to   photograph as often as possible. Blogging put’s that pressure on me and demands me to be creative and to improve all the time. I have to improve to give my followers something they haven’t seen before.

Still I am strict with what I chose to publish. I am not a “human-photographer”. This might be a next step for me, but for now I stick to my idea of places, nature and gardening. My thought from the start was based on the fantastic views  Sweden offer and to share these. I have not been strict there, because the world offers more beautiful places and I am happy to be able to share some of them as well.

The photos below are based on my idea about this blog; photos from Sweden.
