Yes, I’m still here!


It’s true, the blog hasn’t had photo of the day in a while, but that doesn’t mean it stopped. No, it’s just that while out of town for the weekend and then recovering from a cold, I’ve decided that perhaps having photo of the day both here and on Flickr is a bit of an annoying (and redundant) hassle.

So instead of posting to both Flickr and here every single day, I’ve decided to experiment with some changes. Photo of the day will continue to be on Flickr (just as it always has and has been for the past few days), but the blog will start to serve a different purpose and might not always be updated daily. Most likely, I’ll do some occasional “catch-up” posts that include photos of the day from the past week or so, or perhaps only just some highlights. Not quite sure about exact timing yet, but I’ll try a few things and see how it goes.

It’ll also be a place for writing more about photography when I get the chance and posting photo sets.

In any case, to check out the past few photos of the day, head on over to Flickr! At least until I have a chance to get this place caught up.

I just recently added a new feature — the ability for posts to have “Next Post” and “Previous Post” navigation links at the bottom — and I figured that it might be helpful to someone out there if I explained how it’s done. Plus, someone might even have a better way that they could share ;-)

Note from Brian: I suppose you’re supposed to remove this post, but I think it’s kinda fun to keep it around. At least for a little while :-)
