Getting Tired of My Writing Again and I Post Too Many Photos

I need to take stock, so here I am making another list.

1. Sometimes I feel my blog has an excessive number of photos
2. I’m tired of using words repetitively, and want to add some freshness to my posts
3. I’m tired of using a caption around my photo as a sort of watermark. I want to just post my photos and hope no one steals them. (makes me wonder why I have trust issues)
4. But I also don’t want to post too few photos as I’ve always intended my blog to help people and if the photo is useful in showing you detail that’s hard to capture in a few words, or I feel is pretty, I’m adding it.
5. I want to get personal again. Been hesitating as I try to protect myself whenever I feel too exposed.

This post was prompted as I enjoy blogs with solitary photos and high quality writing. These 2 food blogs in particular have that minimalist feel I like. They are also totally personal and with no commercial element:

Food Recentrunes
The Travelling Hungryboy

    #3. You can post lower res photos. They are no good for printing but good enough for the web. They will also display faster.

    If you have photo-editing software, a lot of them allow you to embed metadata into your photo so you can input your name into it. This way, no matter where your photo ends up, your copyright is embedded in the metadata, proving that the photo is yours.

      Wow I didn’t know that. Thanks Kirsten. I’m kinda rubbish with software. Just use what’s available on the iMac.

    I love whatever you choose to give me.

    Your photos are always gorgeous and I think you have a tremendous gift for finding little details.

    I also really enjoy when you are personal and share what you’re comfortable with.

    Every blog post is a gift, and I’m not complaining about what you choose to give us.
