The best blog ideas come from your activities.
I subscribe to a lot of blogs. I try to keep up on the news from company blogs such as Canon, Flickr and Google, and tech blogs like Mashable and TechCrunch. Photography news, business and trends are also at the top of my list, especially when new technology or updates are announced.
This blog will never be about being the first to publish. I have better things to do.
I find my best blog posts come from my experiences photographing and marketing The Rosh Group and Synectics Media. Working with clients, while using the tools I’ve written about on this blog, has been helpful for developing new ideas.
I sincerely don’t have the desire to read or write another post about why social media is good for your business, or the top 10 uses for Twitter, or how to photograph a sunset, or why they don’t get it.
The Web is saturated with basic information. If I’m to rise above the noise, I need to develop and share new ideas. If you are going to make your mark with a blog, you need to write about things people haven’t thought about yet.
There’s pandemonium in the photography, technology and social media worlds. Survival requires ingenuity and thinking beyond the basics.
No, it’s not easy. That is why few survive.
We need to think beyond the obvious. We must force our minds, cameras and computers to do things we never thought of before. Make note of your experiences and share them with the world.
