  • Where to Get Eye-Catching Photos

    So, this kind of deviates from the general theme of this blog, but know that at least some of my audience are also bloggers, and a lot of you have written to me before about wanting to start a blog in the future, so I think it’s still pretty relevant and it’s what’s been on my mind these last couple of weeks.

    Basically, it’s a little pearl of wisdom that I really wanted to share with anybody that also publishes posts or articles that require images. Images are, obviously, super important. When attached to an article, it is often the image which catches people’s eye, and that first judgment will have serious consequence in whether somebody decides to read that article or not. It’s actually signs. I wish people were not so shallow, but we are, and it’s something that we can learn to accept and adapt to.

    In fact, it’s something that we must learn to accept and adapt to. That is what has made this last while comma for however long I’ve been publishing online, sort of painful. Intuitively, I’ve known the major importance of the image that is attached to its respective article. I know this from my experience, but I also know it from a theoretical and scientific perspective. So, being subjected to so many mediocre images and not being able to have control over the quality of impression I’m making on potential audience members? It has been amazingly frustrating. Magnificently annoying. Horribly horrible. To put it lightly.

    I don’t want anyone else to have to go through this, and a couple of weeks ago I found a solution that I want to share with you. I’ve tried it for a whole 2 weeks now, and I am still as excited about this little site as I was when I began. Compared to other stock photography databases, EyeEm absolutely blows them away. It’s not even a competition. I’ve never had so many great Stock Photos  at my disposal in my life.

    So, if you’re the kind of person that blogs, or is interested in blocking in future, or even just writing a single post or article, this is where you will want to go to find your image.

  • I Want A 360 Camera For Next Year

    I really really want a 360 camera. For so many reasons. First of all I just totally think that the technology is completely amazing. I would have never imagined that something like this would be available for such a decent price. Like, it seems so Advanced, and only a few years ago it would have seen unbelievably futuristic. But here we are. And the technology is available at a rate that I can easily afford.

    Especially because I think that using 360 content, I will be able to make the blog way more competitive and draw and more audiences. By creating an immersive experience for my readers, I think that I could really bring more people in and spread word of mouth about the block, and also just bring a fresh take to the type of content that I’m allowing myself to produce with the parameters that I set for myself.

    Wouldn’t it be very cool if all the sudden I was putting out some great 360 degree footage that can be accessed by anybody, but also be especially accessed by anybody who has a headset, even a thing like Google cardboard could bring you right into it. Any environment that I find interesting, and any of my travels or situational lifetimes, I could just capture with one of these devices, and then you could be there too.

    It’s like a whole new level of Storytelling and experience sharing and it’s something that I’m very much excited by. So, yes I really do want a 360 camera, and I just don’t know which one to buy. Anyone have any suggestions as to which one to buy? Whether you have one, or you just been reading about 1, I will totally value your opinion on this matter if you share it with me. I’m just so excited by the prospect of delving into this method of content creation. I know it’s different than what I usually do, but I’m ready for a big shift and new territory.
