When I started blogging last year photos were not that important to me. It was just something that I used to help spruce up my posts.

I've found through my own reading & research that people are more likely to stay on your page for longer, if there are pictures present. I personally, stay on pages longer that have photographs. To me, they can help tell your story.

Well, let me tell you. In the last couple of months, pictures have become just as important to me, as what I write. I thought I was content with the camera that I use but I'm quickly outgrowing it. I'm not technically savvy, nor do I have endless amounts of money to spend but the search for a better camera is on. (I'm also on the hunt for a new laptop. I miss the portability of it. I hate being tied to one room, for hours on end.)

I want the crispness, near perfection (in my eyes) & different options that a more professional camera can help me bring to life. I can't wait for the seasons to change again, so I can start documenting more activity around me. There's so much that I want to do with my photography & I'll share more of it with you when it's closer to fruition!

Have you ever had a simple hobby turn into a passion? Leave a comment below, I'd love to hear from you. Enjoy your weekend!

Rainbow Trout, catching air

Well it's not working as well as I'd like but I'm plugging away.

  • Test #1 of the protein bar = a Big Fail. I will perfect it & provide the recipe.
  • The knitting is still in the promise land. Meaning it's still sitting in my bag. For me it's a mindless (relaxing) activity if you do it everyday. I'm rusty so I need to concentrate until my hands take over. Maybe I should try knitting first thing in the morning instead of at night. Something to think about.
  • Reading for other than my 'Book of the Month' has started again. Don't get me wrong, I only read books that I will hopefully enjoy, but reading without a deadline is great as well.
  • Going to bed earlier. I'm off schedule again and it's affecting me the next day. I'm tired, cranky and I find it really hard to concentrate on my work. I prefer to start working early, before the sun rises. Not 2am like in the past, more like 5:30-6am.
  • If I have an appointment, I don't rush home to get back, to work. Well, some of the time. I try to walk around, take some pictures, relax.

I have a lot to work on but it'll have to be 1 day at a time & 1 task at a time.

How is your work/life balance?

Beautiful February day
