Pay attention to what your paying attention to.
Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about this statement. How am I spending what little time I do have? Between Facebook, Twitter and a zillion other iphone apps…there are a lot of days where I zone out and just let things come towards me when it comes to social media. I have to admit…I like substance. I like to read things that matter. While I appreciate someone that can succinctly say something in 140 characters or less on Twitter – I’m just not very good at it. And while I love the minute by minute updates on Facebook…I find it more important for me to be living my life and being present with all of you I am face to face with. I just don’t feel as though MY minute by minute is that interesting. Maybe it is…but I’ve yet to find a way to be very good at that yet either. But am I the ONLY one?
I’m on a new found old-fashioned kick of finding substance in what I’m paying attention to. I want to read things longer than 140 characters and I want to be face to face with more than facebook.
So, I thought I’d share a few things I love paying attention to….
If you are a bride there are some tremendous blogs out there that didn't exist when I got married. Filled with endless ideas...I love Southern Weddings by an incredible friend and editor Lara Casey. Abbye over at Style Me Pretty is phenomenal and so gifted at bring great ideas to brides.
For you photographers, there is one blog in particular that I would recommend paying attention to…The Business of Being Creative is an amazing business blog for creative individuals written by Sean Low. Sean is Preston Bailey’s former right-hand man and he has been in creative businesses for quite some time. His insights are so valuable.
For design folks and everyone with a love for great art and design – I love two blogs…Rifle Design and Design Sponge.
And for every mom photographer out there…no one shares her heart more than Me Ra Koh out of Seattle, Washington.
I would love to know what you are paying attention to! PLEASE! As I update my blog reader I would love to add some great reading material and follow the lives of inspiring people. If you know someone or something inspiring, funny, smart – or just plain entertaining – can you leave your thoughts below? I’d LOVE to know!
