Normally, this would not be a hardship, because it is fairly easy for me to write about almost anything, but I had sought the advice of a career coach, who had informed me that my blog readers would be confused if I strayed off topic to discuss things other than gardening, or to write about my work as a photo-artist, photo-work which often leads to images that I ultimately produce to include in my "correspondence" collection, which has selections of invitations that enhance any occasion, as well as my event program covers that preserve a moment in time, and, my greeting cards that are about more than communication — all of which I sell via the store-front of my web-site.
As you know, dear reader, the topics of gardening (especially urban gardening) and photo-artistry are my blog's "mainstays". However, as I've said before, I am a dot-connector by nature, and therefore, I also give others (such as you, my dear readers), credit for connecting dots, which sometimes leads me to blog about other topics.
Therefore, I was very disheartened by the career coach, because I am not a "category person", as I stated in a previous post, in which I touched on this still-sensitive-to-me subject. I pointed out to the career coach that in the"About" box in my blog, I've stated,"On this blog, I discuss how my gardening experience inspires and informs the images I create for my unusual line of invitations, event program covers, and all occasion greeting cards; as well as my impressionistic photo-art. (For details see patriciayoungquist.com). Sometimes I reflect on current events, or discuss what people that currently influence me are doing (as well as people who have had an influence on me from their place in history). My 1st blog entry was 12.31.09, where I laid out my plan for this blog. Now, January 29th 2011, after 108 posts, I've changed the layout, and I warn you that I like long sentences, because when they stay on point (as I hope I do), they take you on a journey. I like to plant ideas, as well as seeds, with good care, and nurture them as they grow."
