I’ve been thinking a lot about my blog lately. I often forget that people other than my sister and mother read my blog from time to time. I always giggle and kind of blush when I meet someone and they ask me something about my life that they read on my blog…or when someone says, “I totally stalk your blog!”. I don’t know if I should say “thank-you” or run to my door to make sure it’s locked… : ) totally kidding…I love all of you who continue to support my blog and leave me love. My blog would be nothing without you guys.
Anyways, I’ve recently decided that I am going to begin the long and exciting process of rebranding Tonhya Kae Photography. I have so many ideas that I want to see come to life, but I have to remember to be patient with this kind of thing. I want everything about my website/blog/work to reflect exactly who I am. I want people to have a good idea of who I am, where I came from, and where I’m going just by hanging around on my blog from time to time. This can be a difficult thing, but I think just being more transparent and honest will accomplish this goal of mine. Everyone has their own opinion on whether to share personal things on your blog, or to keep it strictly business…
My business wouldn’t exist if I didn’t get personal with people. It’s that simple.
So take it or leave it…I’m making the decision to keep it real on this blog. : ) Which brings me to revealing some more facts about myself that some of you may not know. And since I am visiting home right now I found it appropriate to share some things…
I grew up on a farm. It’s true…I’m a country girl at heart and always will be.
I think people assume I grew up in the city, but that is the farthest from the truth.
I grew up listening to country music and riding horses for a period of time.
If we wanted new clothes, we had to drive 45 minutes to get to a mall.
My very first job was at our towns only fast-food place….Dairy Queen. (I make a mean chocolate-dipped cone)
I grew up being surrounded by some of the best Mexican food ever.
Growing up we never really had neighbors.
And no matter how long I live in Seattle…I will always love going home to the country.
