Are you armed and ready to shoot? (Pictures, that is!)

You should always be armed with a camera and ready to shoot!

Why should you be armed with a camera?

Fiery sunset and quote.

First, this helps you to be focused on how beautiful life really is. This can change your whole day and over time, your life perspective.

You never know when you will be awed by something beautiful.  Usually when you least expect it.  For example, I was driving home from visiting family and had to stop the car on the side of the highway because of this amazing sight.

The next day, I was able to find a quote that seemed to work with the photo, added one of my web site addresses for passive marketing purposes and upload it to my social media sites.


What should You take pictures of?

Whatever catches your eye!

Man-With-Question-06You will probably delete most of the pictures but I would suggest keeping a folder for anything that “speaks to you”.  This way, you can reach back to those pictures for ideas on those days when you are struggling for blog material or looking for something to jazz up a presentation or web site.  I highly recommend using Canva so that you can save your projects where you can reach them on a whim and re-purpose your work quickly and easily.


 Who cares?

Sunset over Rice Lake with quote.


The only one that matters is you.  This is about attracting people to your site, blog or whatever your goal is.  Regardless, people want to know why they should deal with YOU.  These pictures should be a reflection of your inner soul.


By focusing on pictures that appeal to you and then choosing quotes that speak to you, your readers will get a sense of who you are, not just what you do.  This goes back to the fact that I can buy a widget from anyone, why would I buy from you?

Be armed and ready to shoot!


Make it a great day,


P.S.  What am I thankful for today?  I’m thankful for cell phones with cameras.  I’m thankful for data plans.  I’m thankful for @canva and @BrainyQuote!

What are you thankful for today?
