Colorways grew out of my love for art and design, and my passion for paint and color. I feel confident about my abilities in those areas, but admittedly blogging is more of a learn as I go endeavor. I think learning is life long, and part of learning is trying new things and stepping out of your comfort zone. For me, out of my comfort zone, is all things related to being in front of a camera, especially the videos.
I am so fortunate to work with professional, talented individuals, John, Caleb, and Nate, who take care of all the technical aspects of shooting and editing the tutorials. I trust them and their abilities or I couldn’t do it. And believe me, it is my least favorite part of blogging. My anxiety level during shooting is off the charts, but I hope I’m improving, (I know I’m trying), and I do feel the videos offer a better way to communicate some my techniques.
So when I heard from one of my readers wrote that she was very disappointed in the Brass Chandelier videos I posted last week, it was a bit painful. I’ve seen some very ugly comments on other blogs, but this was not like that. She had watched all three parts and was quite specific in her criticism. I appreciate that she took the time to give me feedback when she could have silently unsubscribed and stopped following my blog. I really do value her opinion.
I welcome your honest, thoughtful feedback. It helps me grow and learn as a blogger and a person, although it can be hard to read sometimes. I wish I could personally respond to each one, that has become increasingly difficult as the blog has grown. I do read every email and comment, I take each one seriously, and hopefully not to too personally.
