First Anniversary

One year ago today I launched this blog.  I made a commitment to myself to post every day for at least one year in order to create  a visual record of my world through four seasons.  Blogging provided a way to grow as an artist and individual by working with a new medium that could combine my love of words with sharing photographs.

I am pleased with the year’s work.  I took 6,500 photographs over the past year, created 385 posts, and recorded 8,600 visits to my blog.  

I do plan to keep posting to this blog.   There will be one noticeable change, however.  I will post only when I have something to share, not necessarily every day. 

I don’t want to become stale.  As I continue to evolve in my creative pursuits, I expect that my blog will change over time as well.  At this point, I don’t know what these new directions will look like.  I would like to spend some time exploring how to market my photographs.  I would like to explore painting and drawing rather than just making photographs.  These are challenging projects for me, and it’s all a bit scary because I don’t know if I’ll be any good at them.  You are welcome to read about my journey and struggles in this blog as I forge ahead in the coming year.

I appreciate all of my readers, and I hope you keep checking in.
