It's been brought to my attention that my content, everything I've ever put on instagram, I don't own.
If social media collapses, so does everything I've written about my work.
So I'll be going through my posts and working to transfer my work, my thoughtful captions, etc to my own blog.
This is sort of a visual autopsy of sorts until we get caught up to present day!
Here's a look back to my very first post. I started that account without telling anyone I knew. I wanted it to be a true litmus test to see whether there was any genuine interest in what I had to say.
Your friends and family are not your niche.
They will love your work because YOU made it. Not necessarily because they think it's valuable.
I didn't want to play any games. I don't follow anyone on this account, I didn't want any 'follow 4 follow' type of variables to play into the success or failure of this endeavor.
I could not have been more proud, shocked and just amazed at everything that has happened as a result of just taking that first small step in sharing my work online.
