I have never written on this blog, I just bought the domain name in case I decide to ever actually write under Amber Faust rather than Faust Island. I thought it would be better safe than sorry. Noone even knows this is here, I think the domain authority is like 1 out of 100. So I think it would be a fun place to write my random rambles.
I named my main blog Faust Island on a whim, Matthew and I met on an island and we still live on an island. I didn’t actually know that there were two small land masses named Faust Island. I should have googled that before I just ran with it. Hindsight is 2020?
@amberfaust was already taken on instagram but it’s deserted. Maybe I can petition to get it one day? But I do love the Island. But what happens if we decide to move to a mountain? Would I change my name to Faust Mountain? Or just a cute suburban street in middle America? Would I be the Faust Lane? Maybe? That would be a cute mom blog name.
I actually miss family photography. Oli is 4 and Milo is 3, I think by the time Milo enters kindergarten I may be ready to reenter the freelance world? I’ve never really felt like an influencer. It feels fake and weird. Do all Instagram influencers feel fake?
I have a tab in my Instagram Stories where I brag about recent press, once again it feels totally fake. So I’m going to humble brag here where no-one will read it because I can’t continue that. It’s too much.

Wall Street Journal called me an aspiring influencer. This one made me laugh. It’s true. But I don’t truly know how much I aspire, I don’t even really like the word influencer.
Flurt Mag did an entire piece on my conversion from family photographer to parent influencer.
Oh and Oli and I went on HLN to discuss Instagram and cute long haired boys. But he kept yelling poop, so I giggled all the way through it.
So we have like 2 months left of this decade and I have yet to figure out who I want to be? Maybe I’ll just keep winging it? Can you get through your entire life winging it?
