Out of Steam

Thursday, July 21, 2011 · Posted in ,

I am feeling guilty because I have been ignoring my blog lately.  For some reason I have been having trouble getting motivated.  If I am honest there are a number of reasons why my photography and my blog are languishing.   My job is very stressful right now and actually so is my non-profit activity...something that I didn't expect and quite frankly resent.  I expect it from my job but they actually pay me.  I don't expect it from my volunteer work, it simply takes any of the joy away.  The weather also isn't cooperating it is either raining to just way to bright to take pictures and end up with anything decent.  And to top it all off my back pain is really acting up making it very difficult for me to spend time at the computer editing photos.  I have Thoracic Outlet Syndrome which is a nerve compression which causes a lot of pain in my back and radiating down my arms at times it really effects the quality of my life, it has been good for about six months but is getting worse again.

Another issue is that I simply am not happy with my blog, I haven't been able to find a blogger template that I like and I simply do not have the tech skills to do my own and since I make no income off my photography it is hard to justify spending money to get a new blog done up for me.  Although I may have found the answer to this issue here.  I am registered for this course and we will see if I am capable of learning how to build my own blog.

Anyway sorry for the rant, I just wanted to explain my absence.  I am going to try to get out with the camera this weekend, the weather is supposed to be beautiful and I will see what I can find to motivate me. 

And since this is a photography blog, not a Deanna bitching blog I had to include this photo I shot the other night while we were relaxing in the yard.  This is my princess. Her name is Trixie although I mostly call her big dog and she responds to it quite well.  We also have a little dog and he responds to nothing but the word "treats" but that is a story for another day.
