@skoobz I have considered going back to Glass, but your comment about it being a silo—and Manton’s post as well—have confirmed my decision not to. As you rightly mention, I love how effortless Micro.blog makes the process of sharing out content to other services, should you so choose. My other issue with Glass was I always felt my photos were completely outclassed by people on the platform. I just don’t have the talent (yet) to compete, thus I questioned whether the cost was worth it for me.

@pimoore I don’t have the talent or the equipment at this point.

@skoobz why a separate site for photos? Truly curious since I have done that before and have always ended up merging it back into one site. Using a photo optimized theme is only thing I can think of.

@pimoore @skoobz thanks for writing your thoughts and pointing at Manton's post. It's late (early) and I have things to say that I should probably keep to write in a post when I have the energy, as someone who joined glass recently and as someone who is recovering photography.

@jthingelstad I’m thinking as a place to post my more “serious” photos. I recently was gifted my first “real” camera, interchangeable lenses and all. I thought Glass would spark some of my creativity. Instead, I think I have a little bit of an inferiority complex with it. So, I want to lean more into my own space for this.

@jtr I’ll be curious of your perspective.

@skoobz I like the idea of having a venue, which in effect creates a form of "demand" that encourages more photography. I do this by putting a photo in the Weekly Thing. It makes me push to capture an image worth sharing at least every week. In the past I've had a photography website almost like a portfolio, but I’m not a professional photographer so that seems odd. For me, the thing that I keep considering a photo blog for is to have a place where I "speak with photos" instead of with words. And a way to push my creative borders. But I worry about the mental cost and overhead of two sites. The other thing I would like is it feels odd to post an image I captured years ago on my blog today, but on a photo blog maybe that would seem less odd. Appreciate the dialog and congrats on the camera!
