Steve McCurry, a professional photographer and author of several photography books, shares his reasons for why he blogs on WordPress.com. His iconic photo, Afghan Girl, graced the cover of National Geographic and was named one of the 100 Best Pictures of the magazine. McCurry has been recognized with some of the most prestigious awards in the industry, including the Robert Capa Gold Medal, National Press Photographers Award, and an unprecedented four first prize awards from the World Press Photo contest, to name a few.

You are a world-famous photographer. Why do you blog?

Steve: Who would even dream 20 years ago that we would even have the internet? Clearly the internet is changing the landscape of publishing, news, and entertainment. There are countless channels on television, infinite content on the internet, and stimuli literally everywhere we turn. . . . There is so much competition. My blog is just my way of…

Morton’s Fork – Daily Prompt

Another Daily Prompt. Challenge

Challenge :

If you had to choose between being able to write a blog (but not read others’) and being able to read others’ blogs (but not write your own), which would you pick? Why?

This is a really, really tough choice! 
What to choose , What to choose…
I would have to choose to write my blog. 
Why, you ask?
Because I love to share what I learn, and the thoughts that swim inside my head with the masses. 🙂
The Prima Donna in me has spoken.

An Interview with Kevin

This post was prompted by conversations with people over the last couple of weeks.

Kevin is one of my daughters’ curling coaches,  a new follower and he really, really wanted to see his name in a post 🙂 So here it is

The Interview

Kevin – What kind of life do you have that you would even think about blogging?

Angie –  I love the idea of blogging you can connect with so many people all over the world.

A fellow blogger “Clanmother” a.k.a Rebecca Budd summed it up perfectly,

We are a community that celebrates diversity – customs, culture, languages, art and food. We are a community that shares our voices through poetry, music, dance, humour, art, and photography.  We are a community that is strong, courageous and tolerant. We are a community that wants to be a positive force for transformation – together.

That’s the kind of life I have.  What better life could one ask for?

Kevin – Do you work on your blog while you are at work?

Angie – No, I can schedule when I post things.  During my lunch break I’ll work on my blog if the mood strikes, which it usually does. 🙂

Kevin – Where do you find the time?

Angie – I make the time, instead of soaking in the tub, I’ll write, or instead of watching t.v, I’ll write, I can always find the time..:)  Some great work has been written in less than 10 minutes, especially if your writing from the heart. 🙂


In a nutshell I really enjoy blogging, I have never claimed to be a writer, maybe one day I will be, but for now, I’m enjoying what I’m doing,  I can, when I feel like it and apply myself write things that Charles Dickens would be proud of!  But for now I’m proud of me for putting my thoughts and ideas out there for many to see and  hopefully enjoy.
