So, this has been a long time coming. I’ve been playing around with the idea to start a blog for about a year now and it’s time to finally take the plunge. To be honest, the things that were holding me back were, one, I wasn’t sure if I would have the time to even do this. I mean, I am a Mom to 3 girls, run a Private Editing business, and a Portrait Photography business as well. How in the heck would I even find time to get ready for the day let alone start a blog??!! I’ve also been worried about why would anyone even want to hear from me? Do I have anything that would interest the photography world? I mean, hasn’t it been blogged already? So, I put it out there and asked around, and you know what, several photographers as well as my clients gave me a big “YES! Please do this! We would love to hear insights, thoughts, know how..etc from a private editor!” Well those sweet comments and encouraging words is what that put the fire in me that I needed. Fast forward to today, and many hours of brainstorming and design work, and BAM, a Janelle Joy blog is born!
Also, I need to get real here, I am no writer. No seriously! Ask my husband who wants to slap his hand across his forehead every time he reads something I wrote. I have constant grammar and spelling errors even with spell check. (Don’t judge) So I will do my best not to bore you with my posts or have you rolling on the floor laughing at all of my grammatical errors, but I make no promises that it will be anywhere near the standards of my grammar police husband.
So, I’m crazy excited for this journey and literally have so many ideas that I can’t wait to share in future posts. I can’t wait to share with you my 12+ years of photography and editing knowledge. I may even bring in a guest blogger now and then as well. It’s going to be a fun ride and I’m thrilled and honored that you would join me. If there is anything you would like to have me do a post on, don’t hesitate to email me with your thoughts! You may just see it in a future post!
Stay tuned for a super fun Giveaway coming your way! (It may involve the Mrs Box!! *hint *hint)
