If you write, you will learn it is easier to write about a topic that excites you. When I decided to document our proposal, it was such an easy post to write because it was an extremely special moment in my life (you can check out our proposal story here).
Since then I have gone back and forth about whether I would continue posting about our wedding or not. I love the idea of sharing where I am at in life and writing posts on something that is exciting to me (like planning our wedding). However, wedding planning is very new and unfamiliar to me. I am learning the wedding process as I go through it.
Which led me to a big question… How can I offer valuable content to the reader if I write about planning our wedding (a topic I am somewhat unfamiliar with)?
My goal with every post is to offer valuable content. Whether it is helping someone understand my photography services or to gather ideas for their own photography session or offering sweet words for someone to feel appreciated, my end goal is for the reader to feel like he or she has walked away with “something” after reading a post. If I was going to write about our wedding, I needed to figure out how to create value and purpose with each post.
I brainstormed, and I realized two main points that made me feel comfortable posting about our wedding.
If you love a good story, you will enjoy the wedding posts. I had planned on documenting these months for myself personally just because I enjoy writing my story. But, as a reader you can take a few minutes and lose yourself in the words.
If you are looking for ideas or insight into how the wedding planning process works, my goal with these posts is to offer some insight into these topics and explain how we are tackling everything.
Now that I had a purpose behind writing wedding posts, I began creating content. And here we are. Let’s jump in to wedding planning!
