Eric Kim’s Blogging Strategy Worked
CJ Chilvers took note that popular street photographer and blogger, Erik Kim, deleted his Instagram account.
I got a chuckle out of it. I have all but given up on anything except blogging long ago. For the exception of the occasional Facebook post, it’s all blogging for me. Anyone who listens to me knows, if you want abrasive bullshit from me, go to Facebook. If you care to see what I’m up to personally, go to my blog.
I have always been of the mindset that there is no reason to give your content to poor platforms that you do not own. All of your efforts can disappear at the platform owner’s convenience. The platform owners delete at will too!
In my opinion, Mr. Kim rambles on and repeats himself a bit much for my liking. It works for him though. He is also another good source of inspiration for his constant insistence to buy books not gear. He’s well read on the subjects involving street photography too.
Regardless of opinions, Eric Kim worked hard and it’s paying off. He’s become influential in the realm of photography. Simple lesson.
