However it’s funny how the internet created a personal brand for essentially everyone and anyone. All of a sudden certain expectation arise from followers. And then the number of said followers disconcertingly assumes a certain worth or value. I’m speaking of course about followers/subscribers for blogs and various social media platforms. Given that a good portion of my business relies of social media for promotion and marketing it doesn’t make sense for me to showcase content that isn’t photography related.
Thus, I’m taking back control over this blog! Not A Starving Artist started off as a place for me to keep my friends back home updated with how I was doing as a growing artist. Directly indicating that my occupational pursuits have not caused me to starve to death yet. Randomly one of my posts went viral and shot this tumblr following from 6 to over 1,000 in one night. Given my experience as an entrepreneur and social media strategist I understood the types of individuals from the overnight wave and began consistently pumping out content that would cater to their liking. Funny how things work out once things get popular. Everything feels to contrived.
So starting today, this again will be my personal blog outlet thing-a-ma-bobber. My following here will probably drop, oh well. However if you’d like to stay and tag along my ride then I welcome you with open arms :)
You’re probably going to see my attempts at cooking, my attempts at calligraphy, my attempts at fitness, just me exploring different interests.
Wow, this was a long post just to say that I’m turning this into a personal blog again. Lol.
