  • The Truth about Comments

Today is Friday and there are no weddings to blog and no portrait sessions to be edited and so I was wondering what to blog about and it hit me! COMMENTS! I’ve been meaning to blog about this for a while now but this little thing called “graduation and the end of college” keeps distracting me!

.

I wanted to explain about “comments” and why I adore them. It is a common, yet legitimate misunderstanding that photographers and really any other type of blogger just love to have personal praise.  Bloggers ask for comments and sometimes beg for them! It’s so unattractive! However! There is so much more behind a comment.

.

I remember receiving my first real comments and I was just beside myself! I called Michael and emailed my Mom! (dramatic, I know) The fact that individuals would take time to look at my blog just blew me away! I couldn’t believe that my images and words were worthy of anyone’s time! I was thrilled!! The more I blogged, the more comments came pouring in.  I really cherish them and I read them all!! Jasmine Star said it all to well she explained that if  people are kind enough to leave encouraging words and personal feedback, of course she’s going to read them! (and she reads them ALL… she’s wonderwoman, I’m convinced)  Comments are the number one way I connect with my viewers and clients. When someone comments, it isn’t just a pat on the back, it’s showing me what I’m doing right and also what I’m doing wrong. There have been some posts with absolutely no activity and no comments. … and while I normally pout for about 10 seconds, I get over it and I learn from those days!  My comments have taught me what my viewers like and dislike and this has had an INCREDIBLE impact on my business!

.

So if you have ever left a comment, please know that I truly appreciate them and I thank you! I thank you because YOU are the reason Inspired Designs is growing! You get full credit! I am constantly humbled and encouraged by emails, comments and amazing feedback from all of you amazing blog readers. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

And because this post would be super boring without a picture, here’s a quick shot that has Summer written all over it! Enjoy this beautiful day!!!
