If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you’ve probably heard about my newest project, a food blog called Katie Loves to Eat! I decided to start a second blog because even though I’ve loved blogging here for almost 5 years now, I wanted a hobby project for myself. Something just for fun!
As a business owner, I spend so much of my time behind the scenes working on things that are decidedly NOT fun at all (taxes, bookkeeping, marketing, etc) that it’s hard to remember to nurture my creative side. I think most photographers are either naturally a little more business savvy OR a little more creative. I tend to lean more towards the business side of things because in my mind, there’s really no need to work on being creative if I don’t have any business! It’s easy to get caught up in those tasks though and forget to nurture creativity. My creative side is what drew me to photography in the first place, and since it’s my career now, I think it’s smart to look for other avenues outside of taking photos to fuel that spirit!
I REALLY love food and I’ve always enjoyed writing, so it made sense to me to turn my little food Instagram page (@katielovestoeat) into a slightly more substantial hobby. If nothing else happens, I’ll have an amazing diary of all of my foodie adventures! That’s the thing I love about blogging, it becomes sort of like an online journal. Looking back at my old posts on THIS blog makes me feel so proud of where I came from starting the business 5 years ago! It’s so crazy. So CRAZY. But that’s a post for another day 😉
Thank you for following me here, and if you’re so inclined, I’d love to see you over at my new second home as well! I also plan to still post here 3-4 days a week, so no worries if food isn’t your thing and you’re here for photo tips, weddings, and engagement sessions!
