Blogging Is Freedom

Tell us about the blog post you were most nervous to publish — and what it was like to set it free.  Photographers, artists, poets: show us FREE.

I’ve never been nervous about any of my blog posts. I really enjoy hitting the ‘Publish’ button and letting it go beyond my control.  I have said to myself ‘Publish and be damned!’ a couple of times, but that’s just a nice line from the Duke of Wellington.

I do sometime have thoughts of ‘Do I  post too much?’  ‘Do I post too often?’…. but it doesnt seem to stop me.  Some of the Daily Challenges dont grab me. Sometimes I think ‘Nah!’………… like today, then start composing something as I’m making a cup of tea.

Do I put too much of myself in these posts, give too much away?  Probably not.  Is this blog the real me?  Well, it’s the real me blogging.   I really like the Weekly Photo Challenges because I discover photos in my archive that have been overlooked. That’s always a good feeling.  And of course, there’s the comments and likes. It feels great when the little star icon lights up on my stats page!  So yep, each little post sets me free, as my latest creation is sent fluttering out into the world.

Some street art from Rue Mouffetarde, Paris.  Free as a bird!  A photo taken this week.
