If you had told me a year ago, that creatively, I would be in the place I am now, chances are I wouldn’t have believed you. That being said, I owe a lot of my creative freedom and direction, to this blog. This blog has allowed me to create freely and encourage myself to do things that scare me, to take risks, and completely put myself out there. Which is why as I write this post, I am a little saddened. I am formally announcing that WILDLAND will no longer be active, FOR NOW.
As I have so focused on my photography, I now have a portfolio website dedicated to showcasing my work. On that website there is a blog page in which I will be posting the occasional blog post or ‘zine. I think it’s a little funny how sad I am to be taking this break from Wildlands (ma10ia.com), because the platform I’ve had on here has given me the opportunity to meet and work with some of the most amazing people. It has creatively charged me entirely and I am so grateful. The blog will not be deleted, but any new posts will be on my new official site. This is not to say I won’t be back to my beloved WordPress site in the future, but it’s also important for me to grow as an artist and as a person. A huge thank you to all of you who have supported me from the beginning. www.photobymatenia.com is here, and I hope you love it as much as I do.
