Blogging Travel Photos Cove Benin West Africa Tuesday, September 19, 2006
I just spent the last hour tediously labeling all the photos for newsletter number 202 from Cotonou, Benin. I wish I could figure out a way to kill two birds with one stone. It is very time consuming, I procrastinate; do not like to do the job. I also forget what the photos were about.
The blog is different from the newsletter, I only put some selected photos in the blog and I put all photos in the newsletters. However, I do the blog daily and I do the newsletter when I get the inspiration or my world comes to a climax.
If I could somehow motivate myself to label all the photos on the page as I create them. I can create the pages now in minutes. Less time than putting a photo in the blog, however still, I just avoid.
I think about this, the HoboTraveler.com is a business, in a business it is never good to avoid or procrastinate; it can be the kiss of death. I try to discover or brainstorm on ways to make this one of them jobs I want to do. I like to write about photos, in the blog, however in the newsletter bores me.
I am getting faster at making the preset pages, so eventually I can do it, somehow. One solution would be to induce some pretty woman to travel with me that is a great Webmaster, I can show her the tricks, or the tricks of the trade and I can get photos labeled. The problem is this, I take weird photos, and I still need to tell why…
PHOTOGRAPHERS A photographer is not necessarily a person who cares about anything; it could just mean they like to take photos. More likely, they like to show their photos to people. To be curious to the level, the can see the story beneath the story, to understand the many layers that make one photos unique is not easy for some person pulled out of nowhere from a rich country.
If I ever get full spectrum, it the search for Photographer comes around finally where all the dots are connected. I will meet or wish to meet with Photographers and travel for a month, then part ways. Time is the problem, they would love me to wait on them, meet them, and this is too selfish in the end. Andy, stop you world, so I can help you, by helping you, you must stop everything. Hmm, missing the idea, the idea is to make my life easier, not more complicated.
I laugh at the photographers that say, I can take photos, then assume I should believe. I need many many examples, with captions. I wonder if the photographer is going to have to know how to make a webpage to be successful in the future. There are some program sites like Flickr or something like that, I do not see any value, too much time for me, but in the end works.
