I have used very few words on this blog. I prefer to express myself through photographs. I started this blog wanting total anonymity. I thought it was because I just arrogantly wanted my pictures to speak for themselves. I have finally realized that it was just because I wanted to hide behind a mask. I chose ‘A Thousand Words’ obviously in reference to the common saying but also because it in no way resembled to my actual name. Today I am changing that. I have recently had the honour of displaying 3 of my pieces in a very public office near where I live and was faced with a dilemma: do I sign with ‘A Thousand Words’ or use my own name. I ended up signing with ‘SMld’ which is a combination of my initials and letters from my last name. I realized I didn’t need/want to hide anymore.
So today my username and blog name have permanently changed to ‘SMld Photography!’ It’s a very small step but a significant one for me. I am not brave enough to change the blog address yet as (being a bit tech-UNsavy) I’m afraid I will lose something in the process. I suspect that after visiting the forums I’ll have my answer on that soon enough and will change it over.
So…there you have it. Not major news but I did blab on a tad. I’ll end it here and get back to snapping pictures which I much prefer. Self-indulgent ramblings over 🙂
