Welcome to the new and improved Dog’s Cup of Tea! I am so excited for what this blog is hopefully going to become. I have been trying to find my niche with blogging and I am hoping that I have found it. If you have read my last blog post, you know that I was very unhappy and frustrated with my blogging and the quality of my content. I needed to restart. I said that I would be restarting by remodelling the site, but in attempting to do this, I realized I would have to actually start blogging again. So here I am!
If we are going to be re-introducing ourselves, I guess I better start off. My name is Maddie. I am 18 years old and I am currently finishing up my senior year in high school. I love photography and hope to pursue that dream and I have a slight obsession with my furry best friend, Gunner. I am online schooled and LOVE it. Sadly, I will not be continuing online schooling in college, because of how much I struggle with attempting science and math online. I am planning on pursuing an Associate of Business degree next year while also taking some photography classes. Currently, I am hoping to one day have my own photography business. I love music and I am a worship leader for my youth group. That being said, I am in love with my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, who came to this earth and was beaten and killed so that none of us would have to pay the punishment for our sins that we rightly deserve. He conquered death and defeated sin, which made it possible for all to experience His love and grace through a relationship with Him. I will forever be grateful for this priceless, eternal gift.
As someone who is planning on pursuing photography, I am going to be sharing some of my pictures on this blog (hence the photography tab at the top of your page). I would LOVE if any photographers, especially those more experienced than little ol’ me, would give advice and some constructive criticism. I am currently just using my iPhone 8+, which takes PHENOMINAL pictures. I am in LOOOVE with the quality. However, I do understand that I will need a REAL camera at some point, because I probably won’t get far pursuing a photography business career with just an iPhone (ha!).
I am super excited to try to figure out this blogging thing and photography, but I will need help. Again, constructive criticism and advice is always welcomed. I am so willing to learn and grow and try to achieve this passion of mine that I have had for quite awhile, but have been afraid to pursue. If there is anything you would like to discuss with me, please don’t hesitate to contact me through my email, firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please follow my social media accounts (shameless self-promo lol).
Now, with that out of the way, I am so excited to start this journey! Please join me as I try to finally figure this out.
