Why did I start Our Madison Life Blog!?
The #1 question I get asked when I talk about this blog, is – Why!? The short answer is, it is a creative outlet just for fun. As I have found when I have nothing to do, I get bored. Bored and a little depressed. Then I just watch Netflix all day and get depressed because I am not working. Not working when I should be on my website, social media, and paperwork.
Yes, I started it because I get bored!
It may sound weird, but I am easily bored. The biggest reason why I haven’t narrowed down Natural Intuition Photography too! I love photographing nearly everything as it keeps my mind busy, creative juices flowing, and burn our rarely happens.
The long reason for starting OML is:
When Justin and I first moved to Madison, and even still today, we had a HARD time finding a local blog without a million ads. I refuse to have ads on this site that take up space. Space that could be filled with awesomeness around this city and around the world.
Our Madison Life is about our life in Madison, our favorite places and travel experiences.
We wanted an easy website to navigate with zero ads! Have you ever gone to a website and you can’t view the blog you want to read because there are so many ads? Or it jumps around because the ads are popping up as you scroll? Hate it right!? Yea, us too!
Also, I wanted a site that felt like something that was written without being paid to say nice words. Not writing this blog for profit, even though I hope to someday make it a rad side hustle. I just want to help those traveling to Madison to find fun places to go and eat!
I am also adding my commercial work from Natural Intuition Photography to this site!
As I am photographing more and more business I wanted to showcase our work with their amazing companies. Plus, since the editing style varies so much with the companies. I wanted a place to showcase them where the style didn’t really need to match the brand.
So stoked to be adding that to blog in 2020! I cannot wait!
