So am I really going to make a blog that will work??
Maybe. With baby steps. Today, I tried to renew my passport after 2 years of its expiration date. I want to travel the world, and take photos, and basically, do what I like to do, but why not tell everyone else about it?? Yes there are thousands of travel photography bloggers out there with amazing perspectives and ideas, but there are very few that are: 1) Muslim, 2) Somali, 3) black, and 4) millennial-aged (okay most are but with 1-3, it’s almost none).
I’ve been doing photography for years, and I’ve visited 7 countries, and 6 or 7 states! However, I’m 23 (24 in a month), and most of those places, I didn’t combine photography and traveling together to get where I want to be now! Over the course of this blog, I will describe how I got to this idea and how I plan to change travel photography (even a little will be an accomplishment), and document where all it has taken me! If there are 2 people reading this or millions, it will be great! I’m sure of it, what could honestly go wrong.
These will be the blog posts I look back on and cringe but you have to start somewhere.
So what’s the plan? Well, first I have to get my passport renewed. AND THEN:
- Visit countries
- Take photos
- Come back to write all about it
Want to read where I went? Check out my posts here! I’ve written some great ones such as how beautiful North Italy was, drowning in chocolate in Switzerland, and the photo diary of my crash course in NY!
If you’re interested in my photography work, here’s the other website of my photography, some travel included!
UPDATE: So it’s been a crazy ride, but I came back and started a print site! Loved all my photography from all my traveling, well set it up in your living room to never forget it! Check it out here: ajnabidesigns.com
That simple. Before you go, feel free to leave me any advice, or just say hi!
