“Mabyn, you’ve got too much personality to NOT put it out there! Your website should have more YOU!” – Ariana Watts
Thank you Ariana for helping me sift through the crazy that goes on in this noggin of mine! The end result is this beautiful new website and I LOVE it! I’m grateful I have a friend like you who pushes me to go further in everything I do!
However, putting myself out there has been haaaaaaard! *insert whiney Mabyn voice here* I have this inner battle going on inside my brain. Part of me loves that idea of just writing about whatever, whenever. Then I revert back to my musical theatre audition training:
1 – Present yourself in the best light – be poised, collected, and always smile!
2 – Don’t let them see you sweat – if you screw up keep going, they’ll never notice!
3 – Emote, but don’t over do it – be subtle unless the character calls for it.
I’ve applied these rules to my business too. “Photography Mabyn” is “Professional Mabyn.” So a lot of the time I feel weird putting a lot of personal or silly sutffs out there. Besides, that’s what my Youtube channel has been for!
On the other hand, with the redesign & restructuring of my website I feel like this may be the perfect opportunity to dig a little deeper and give you insight into the weird world that is Mabyn. I started the”Photographer’s Journey” series to do just that, but i’m not sure that it’s the correct title. It may change, I can be fickle…(SEE! You’re already learning!)
I say all of this to let you know that there is going to be a lot more content outside of photography coming to this website. I’ve struggled for a long time with posting about my other passions (i.e. Coffee, Geek life, Youtube, & dōTERRA). Every now and then I would post something, but I think it’s time to post something weekly! Starting today, every Monday there will a new personal post!
This weekly series needs a new catchy title! A Photographer’s Journey & Mabyn Monday’s just seems a little too...”barf,” if you know what I mean. So, I’m going to let this challenge run the week and see what people come up with. Comment below on what you think I should name this new personal series and the winner will not only get the honor of seeing their title displayed on my website for who knows how long, but a fun little prize from yours truly! You have until Sunday at midnight to submit as many ideas as you would like. I’ll reveal the winner next Monday!
Until then, here’s a gif of Roomba Cat to tide you over..
