Prompted in part by my husband’s previous post, I shall be bowing out of posting on this blog. I know there was some misunderstanding as some of you, me included, thought that Bill was excusing himself from posting here anymore, although he was merely stating that he was just more active on his other photography blog, ‘FirewingPhotography’, and could also be found there. The truth is, neither of us posts here very often anymore.
Some time ago when Bill and I decided to merge our photo blogs, ‘Roving Bess’ and ‘Today on Earth’, it was done with all the best intentions and as a way of us collaborating more on photography projects. But as Bill rightly stated, few people stop by here anymore and look at what we do. Some of you may be aware that we also co-author another blog, ‘Rawnakedart.com’ which is geared more to showcasing art in its many forms, and yes talking about photography features a lot.
I in particular, have found it difficult to get any traction here on this blog since the merger for a number of reasons. Although ‘Roving Bess’ was already a well established blog, and I kept all of my followers, I lost all of my history of likes and comments in the process, so I felt as though I’d become somewhat of a newbie again. Furthermore, Bill’s original blog, ‘Today on Earth’ was also a long established site with an ample enough following. As the title of this blog only changed to incorporate the word ‘Art” to reflect the change in authorship, I guess followers just assumed that it was still Bill’s blog. So whenever I posted, some of you naturally assumed that the images and words belonged to Bill. At first it was amusing and excusable, not to mention flattering as Bill is a very talented man, but when it kept happening I sort of gave up the ghost and stopped posting here.
I’ve come to the conclusion that this joint photography blog is somewhat of a failed venture, sadly. It’s ok, these things happen. Although Roving Bess may have died a death, I am still a passionate photographer and I shall continue to take pictures irrespective of online media trends.
I know some of you already follow some of my other blogs, but for those who you who don’t and you happen to be interested in my work, either photography or writing related, then I can be found in the following various places:
Chances are that nobody will even notice my absence here. Nevertheless, I hope to see you around!
