Taking a brave step...

photo (3)It's an unspoken rule in business that you don't reveal your weakness. Actually, it's become rather frowned upon to admit to weakness at all in life; in this age of online profiles we're supposed to be constantly primped, preened and perfect. Weakness is bad, and not something particularly comforting to prospective clients (nor existing clients, for that matter). But rules are made to be broken, right? I'm taking a brave step and admitting to one of my weaknesses when it comes to producing this blog: my photography. While I have a creative eye (thank god - it really would be a threat to my job if I was without that), I am no photographer. And I really do want to produce lovely, attractive photos for my blog. So why am I being stupid enough to admit this in a public space? Well, I know that my wonderful readers are an incredibly supportive bunch. While not all of you leave comments, I receive plenty of tweets and emails from those who have read a post and taken the time to pop me a little note. So I know that I am lucky enough to have a supportive and encouraging community behind me to cheer me on as I work towards creating a new look for this blog. I also know that by 'fessing up publicly, I'll have to work on my photography skills. There'll more than likely be a good smattering of outtakes posted on my instagram page, and hopefully a respectable handful which make it to these pages. Let's do this!
