Wishcasting Wednesday

What Do You Wish To Read?

This was the question on Jamie Ridler's page today! This is relevant to me for two reasons. First, because I made my way home this afternoon on the verge of finishing YES MAN (I am one of those people who walks and reads when it gets really good). Second, because when I did get home there was a new pile of books my sweetie ordered about Photography, as a business! There's a particularly yummy one on Wedding Photography. The fun part will be getting through that one with a dry eye. I've had a browse through it already and every time I saw a picture I really liked I imagined myself in that moment, and bam! The tears welled up. I get really excited at the idea of shooting weddings, because once mine passes in June there will still be many more to be involved with in the future.

Another question that I've been spending time thinking about lately is What is the Purpose of my Blog? I've come to realize that I value community, and I want to make a difference and contribute to this incredible community I am a part of here. You were all so warm and supportive when I was getting back on my feet, and you continue to encourage my creativity. I want to give back. So, on the topic of furthering business I would love to share with you two fellow bloggers.

Jodi at Living Life Photographically has had her photos up on etsy for a little while. What she's doing now is adding her photos, or yours, to glass jewelry. Really cool!!

Emily at Broke Down Artist has started selling her wood block prints on etsy! Check them out:

So I guess it will be my turn next. I am gladly welcoming input and feedback on where people are posting their photos or art for selling. Etsy? Flickr? Something else? Pros and cons? Please share!

And I would love to hear what you are reading, or what's next on your reading list. And what you're doing to create or further your business!

Hugs and heart,

I've been doing some blog soul-searching too. Why am I writing? Who is my audience? It's great to hear you're working it out too. :)

As You wish for yourself, so I wish also!

Much Joy!
