“The opposite of fear is love – love of the challenge, love of the work, the pure joyous passion to take a shot at our dream and see if we can pull it off.”
Thank you all for participating in De-Lurk Day! What sheer pleasure to read about hundreds of people taking a shot at their dream, all in very different ways. I’ve had a blast getting to know so many of you scattered around the globe through the comments and your Facebook posts. You’ve kept me busy reading and liking Facebook pages! I can’t wait to watch you all light up my P4P mini-feed with your work.
Now that you have de-lurked, I hope to keep seeing your fabulous face more often. I started writing this blog because I loved psychology, I keep writing this blog because I love photographers and entrepreneurs. I spend a lot of time staring at WordPress’s ugly mug when I would truly rather be talking to all of you. So please, lend me your pen as often as you lend me your ear.
Speaking of talking to you, I didn’t forget about the drawing:
The winner of the 30-minute Skype chat with me is (drumroll): Gwen of Gwendolyn Waite Photography. I’ve sent you an email, Gwen!
Some great stuff coming up on the blog this week – including Van Gogh’s formula for how to pull yourself out of a funk.
You don’t want to miss it. See you tomorrow!!
P.S. Special shout out to the guys in the audience – thanks for commenting! I don’t get the gender imbalance either. (David Hobby over at Strobist has the opposite issue). But outnumbered or not, I’m glad you’re here.
