De-Lurk Success!

“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.”

-Steven Pressfield

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.

    Thanks for encouraging us to comment and participate. I’m not sure where the gender gap is coming from either. Maybe women are more interested in interpersonal relations and psychology as it relates to photography than men. Your site design, your writing style (honest and fresh), and your topics do appeal to me as a woman.
