for a while now, a german site called amy&pink has been linking back to my blog in their section called “lost in blogs.” i don’t know who you are or how you found me, but thanks for the love! i see jayne is on there as well – wheeee! holler!

check out amy&pink, they cover everything from fashion/life/sex/culture/art/photography – they’re pretty bad-ass and #NSFW =P

on blogging for a living…

Posted in Blogosphere by yoshi on May 22, 2011

one of the first questions i get asked by my readers (hehehe, sounds so funny, i actually have readers – i mean, like, outside of my “friends circle”), is – “how come you don’t blog professionally?”

trust me, i’ve entertained this idea numerous times over the past, what, 6 years?

although a few of my friends blog for a living, i don’t think its quite the lifestyle or career path for me. blogging is a hobby of mine. its a way to keep me connected with my friends and family as well as a means to hopefully inspire people to “get up, get out, and get something.”

if blogging became my profession, i wouldn’t have any outlet to look forward to. blogging would then become a job, and that’s just no fun.

actually, now that i’m writing and thinking about this, i could just as easily quit my job and focus on this blog and find ways to get sponsored and get funding to make a living as a “digital journalist,” hell, it would probably get me outdoors more!

BUT, i love living a “double life.” i love being a producer. i love the challenge. and i love being a part of something larger than just being labeled as a “blogger,” “influencer,” or dare i say it: “tastemaker.” (bleh!) but most of all, who am i kidding, i love the financial perks of doing what i do and working where i work =P

nowadays, i do find it harder and harder to be introduced as a legitimate blogger. i feel as if this culture has been overly exposed, leaving a sour taste in this “industry,” making it difficult to be taken seriously as opposed to saying, “hi, i’m a producer.”

be that as it may, i am still passionate about sharing my world with all of you. my opinions, my photos, my belly, my interests – all for your pleasure and for my sanity.

on another note, i love reading the comments some of you leave me and how i may have inspired you in one way or another or being able to bring you the first look at a new product. truth is, each comment i receive inspires ME to work harder and continue to put out quality posts (or random, funny shit lol) for all of you.

with that – thanks for giving me your feedback – i look forward to them! so leave me comments g’damnit!


i see youuuuuuuu….
