Too personal?

I read this post today on the The Ten Biggest Website Mistakes by Photographers (Tough Love for Some Photographers), and although I think it is fabulous and details some vital things for people to consider for their websites and blogs…

The final point made me uncomfortable.

The type of uncomfortable that is confused between arguing the point in both directions and leaves me wondering about who is really right.  Since I talked about following blogs for Magic Monday this week, I thought perhaps I’d throw out a question about blog content…

should blog content be strictly professional? Have a little personal mixed in?  Or balanced between the two?

This author seems to think there is a need for strict segregation and is bothered by posts that are not just strictly business.

What do you think?

The rebel in me is now going to post some personal pictures:)  And despite the authors assumption that personal postings infer that you don’t have a lot going on in your business life, I’m just going to politely smile, and be happily content that we still made the time to play outside, go on a walk, and build some memories.

In addition, a little side-note to my blog cleansing confession… the photographers work whom I absolutely LOVE the very most?  My favorite images usually happen to be images of their own children and their own life.  There is just something so absolutely refreshing to me about not having to see everything perfect styled and staged all the time.  Truth is powerful.
