On Monday evening of this week, my friend Dawn of Dawn Royer Photography and a small group of her photography pals were meeting at a photo studio in Lockport, IL. She had asked me to stop by and meet with her group to talk to them about blogging. And photography in blogging. And so I did.
I had a great time. We talked for an hour and a half. They asked questions and I tried to answer them as fully and completely as I could. I think they have a better understanding of blogging, now. I think they understand that blogging, as an adjunct to their photography business could be a valuable tool - but it takes time and effort to make the blog worthwhile. And a blog isn't necessarily the best marketing tool for a business like photography - part of the marketing effort, certainly, but it can't be the whole thing.
You've seen the link, above, for Dawn. There was another girl there who has a blog open, as well. Erin Olson of Erin Olson Photography, like Dawn, does really great work and their stuff is up to look at. Go. Take a look at the work these young women do. Leave comments. Let's welcome them into the world of blogging and bloggers.
P.s. Erin also has a brochure site up at Erin Olson Photography to show off some of her really brilliant stuff. Not a blog - but worth a look.
