I used to be Tumblr famous back in the day… as in I had a decent amount of “followers” and had really honed my curating skills such that I was a solid source of ‘reblogs’ for an entire network of tumblr-ers who shared my aesthetic. I suppose you can neither confirm nor deny that tidbit of internet history… Ha. When I was regularly curating, I was also developing an eye for my own aesthetic. I’ve aways really enjoyed photography and documenting the mundane (hence the smörgåsblog), and thought it would be so dope if I not only curated artful, aesthetic content, but created it as well.

The other day, one of the original photos I uploaded to my new, more ‘N’ (as opposed to ‘S’ – MBTI reference) Tumblr page reached 700 ‘notes’, so I took a screenshot and sent it to my brother. Honestly, that’s not a lot by Tumblr standards, but it’s only been like three weeks and 700 qualified as ‘viral’ to me and my brother. Ha.

It’s never the photos I think are super lit that get the most attention. I’ve also received a few  VSCO ‘Honors’ and ‘Distinctions’ over the years and have been equally surprised by which photos have been recognized:

I recently submitted a photo I took at Ocean Beach for inclusion in The Surfer’S Journal. I feel that I have a pretty objective measure for the quality of my work, and I’ve decided I’ll keep submitting until I get at least one photo printed or presented in a surf publication.
