I'm a fish

This post has been  a long time coming.  I have spent forever talking myself out of things I really want to do.  Mostly because I have compared myself to other bloggers, photographers, writers, creatives and found myself coming up short.  But I recently took the indie biz 3.0 course (fabulous) which has given me the courage, bolstered up with a couple of fantastic quotes that have come my way:

Comparison is the enemy of creativity

(Carrie Lundell of thismamamakesstuff quoted in an interview on Created by Chicks) and

If you are taking pictures, you are a photographer; if you are writing, you are a writer; if you are hitting "publish post," you are a blogger. I am not afraid to take bad pictures, to publish fuzzy ones or to write something I might later regret. And I think this is the best advice I could give. Don't be scared. If you love doing something, do it. Learn it, stand by it, put yourself out there. You will fail. But you will swim again...like a fish.

(Kelle Hampton on her beautiful blog Enjoying the Small Things)

So, here goes.  Come join me for some fuzzy pictures and regrettable writing.

And maybe some swimming.
