The World of Virtual Reality

Even though this is not a virtual reality blog, and usually what I post has nothing to do with technology, the fact is that the blog is a new, digital form of content creation and communication that a decade ago was not nearly as popular or commonplace as it has become now. These things happen fast. Sometimes I forget to put that in perspective, the fact that I can do this so effortlessly and easily, and that is so natural, it’s something that sometimes I accidentally take for granted. It’s human nature to take things for granted so I try not to be too hard on myself about that, but it is something that I have been thinking about a lot lately.

I’ve been thinking about it because a lot of people I know are saying that if you are in the world of digital technology or digital media at all, that you need to start becoming literate with virtual reality devices and 360 camera technology. That’s seems so strange to me, as a personal writer who just likes to share stories, but I guess that this new form of content could potentially enhance my storytelling and help my readers gain a more intimate understanding of my life and surroundings. I guess this is important because that’s why people are engaged with me and my riding in the first place.

It would be very naive to just shrug off this new technology and say that it’s not worth engaging with, it would also be very safe. I have learned in my life that sometimes it is necessary to take big risks and step out of your comfort zone and that this is usually the most important thing you can do for moving forward. Maybe I’m thinking too much about this? I’m not sure? All I know is that I am intrigued by the idea of beginning to play with virtual reality contents and offer a 360 degree photos and videos here on my My Little Life Journal. Would this be something that you think that you might be interested in? Let me know if not or if so, because that will determine or at least help to determine whether I move forward with this intuitive impulse that’s been occurring Within Me.

The Photography Hosting Database I Totally Love

For a long time, compiling a database of stock photography that was actually worth sorting through, was an art that literally nobody was practicing. There were a few websites that took an attempt, sort of like how a teenager will learn to how to play half of “Wonderwall” on the acoustic guitar just to seduce girls, hoping that nobody asks him to play the rest of the song, or hoping that is audience doesn’t demand that he actually sings in tune.

Maybe that’s a little bit harsh, but seriously, it’s something that I’m extremely fed up with. That’s not a shortage of stock photography online, the quantity is absolutely not the issue. The issue has been the quality of stock photography online, and finding a consistent source for high-quality images. It might not seem like a big deal, but if you’ve ever been involved in publishing articles or blog posts, it is absolutely and essential part of the process, and settling for mediocrity kind of becomes the norm. Nobody likes when that becomes the norm. Nobody.

So, needless to say, I was super happy to find that my problem was solved overnights with the discovery of… EyeEm. A source for Stock Photos that is super, super, super not terrible. Like, really, it’s actually pretty good, and I am always finding good photos on there, the likes of which I had never seen on any other stock photography hosting database. It’s a total game-changer. I couldn’t be more excited about it. Well, I could probably be a little more excited about it, it’s probably hyperbole, but as far as stock photography image hosting goes? This is way better than I expected to ever find, and I hope that the whole world shares this discovery with me… Mostly to alleviate the suffering of others, but also to make sure that this website gets enough business that they stay operation. Now that I’ve had EyeEm, I really hope that I don’t have to go back.
