getting the monkey off my back…
V1.1 – Updated: 04.12.2020
So, I’ve started a blog… So what?
I want to try to put down some thoughts and ideas that may help others. I won’t be calling it a blog. I will uses the term “Articles”.
I have now been shooting for a while and have picked up some valuable experience along with lots of tips and tricks. Those of you that know me, know that I may have an opinion or two, on the subject of photography 😉
Why am I minimising my social media footprint?
Well, social media platforms are great. In principle, they allow creatives and content makers to share information quickly and effectively, however, they are fraught with many small issues, that when grouped together become a “really big Issue”.
They can impose “community standards” that are frankly ludicrous, and they can impose penalties and bans with impunity.
On balance, I think it’s better for me to have a smaller audience who are actively engaged, rather than to take a broad, scatter gun approach to ideas and discussions that are judged by anonymous administrators.
I will promote this website and my articles using social media, but the content will remain on a platform that I control.
Feel free to comment and engage. I will be moderating the comments, but I will not edit or amend any comments that are negative, as long as they are in good faith, and contribute to the subject at hand.
Note: Inflammatory or abusive language will not be tolerated, and your comments will simply not appear.
I look forward to engaging with you all – Colin
