I’m my own worst enemy sometimes. Because I research so much about digital marketing and content creation for my day job, I often put myself under pressure to personally apply all of the advice that I would give to small businesses in terms of being seen and heard online, on this blog.

But The Ordinary Lovely isn’t a business.

It’s a hobby.

As such, it’s also a space that affords me the freedom to be creative in any which way I choose. My blog posts don’t have to have mass appeal, or be SEO’d to the nth degree, they can be filled with whatever I fancy. And today, I fancied playing with posies. Who wouldn’t given ten minutes spare and a camera looking longingly at them? Well, I imagine quite a lot of you wouldn’t but … my blog, my rules, right?

I keep promising myself that one day, I’ll sit down and learn how to use my camera properly. It’s only a Sony compact, not a fancy DSLR, but I still don’t know much beyond turning it on and off. I’m okay at composing a a nice photo in terms of angles, layout and lighting (always natural in my case, as I love light and shade) but shooting in manual mode? Yeah, no, I don’t know how to do that. It’s auto all the way for me. I think people can faff too much. And when you have posies as pretty as this, the risk of taking a bad shot is so low, why do anything more than arrange, point, and shoot?

They’re sweet, aren’t they?

So, thank you for joining me for this impromptu floral interlude. I’m hoping to make it a more regular thing. It’s nice to write posts without purpose and enjoy being creative simply for the sake of it.
