thanks for being awesome.

Take a look at dem apples! WordPress sent me this little report telling me all the EXCITING things that have happened to my blog. I dunno what to say! Thanks for checking my blog. Thanks for reading my words. Thanks for looking at my photos. Thanks for putting up with my tacky grammar and horrid spelling. Thanks for still checking out my blog even though I don’t post as much. Thanks for the lovely comments. And lastly, thank you for being awesome. You guys made this blog AWESOME. And because I love it so much, I’m gonna continue to post here. Instead of using my other website. Yeah, I love you guys.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 7,200 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

Opps…

Whoops! Forgot to make all my blog posts ahead of time! Somehow, the weekend just slipped away. It’s funny how that happens. I keep telling myself I have time to blog, I’ve got the whole stinking weekend! I’ve got time. Lo-and-behold, here it is late Sunday night, and I havent even started building up my blog posts for the week. So, this week will be fairly light. If any posts at all. It’s somewhat of a busy one as well, I’ve got the Cast Party on Tuesday, Thursday I’m meeting some friends to see Pirates 4, Friday I’m graduating, and maybe this weekend I might meet Colin at Hot Topic, because we both want to get skinny jeans. But Im not sure. So yeah.
I’ll try to blog some this week though. My brother is letting me use his computer for school n’stuff. So I’ll be able to upload photos, they just wont be edited. Which might be kind of nice for a change. Im always editing my photos now-a-days. It’s not that they are terrible (usually the focus and exposure are right on) I just like richer, and more contrast-y photos.
Anyway, If you are still reading this, congrats! You’ve survived the Rapture! Now, the ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE!!!! Or has that already happened? BAH! Who cares. It’s all a bunch of lies and poopoo anyway.
Alrighty then, well you all have a lovely, evening, night, morning, noon, or whatever it’s like where you are!

By the way, May 19 (last Thursday), I got 298 blog views in one day!!!! I don’t even know where they came from! It just happened! That’s the most I’ve gotten…EVER. So thank you all for telling other people about my blog! You ROCK!!!

I don’t know what to say, all I can say, I guess, is thank you for all your support, comments, and encouragement!!! It has been so much fun blogging and reading what you guys say. I love it when someone I barely know, walks up to me and says, “Hey, are you that kid with the blog? Your photos are amazing!” Every time that happens I freak out! I think it’s so cool how people know me through my blog! Its awesome!

Ive been thinking about maybe doing a contest when I get to 10,000 views! Oh yes! A CONTEST!!! But I need you guys to spread the word. THE WORD. (about my blog ya know? The thing…you’re reading…ya…that.)

Thank you all! Please accept this HUG – *hugs everyone* *squeezes* *squeezes harder* *eyes pop out* Opps… *walks away*

Blog Update and Camera Gear Update

Hey guys! I would just like to say that the “Camera Gear” tab is all updated and working! Scroll over and see some really cool drop down menus that I created!

Also, what do ya think of the new blog theme? I wanted a theme that could display a bigger picture, sadly I had to compromise with losing all the side bar stuff. Luckily I moved some of it to the bottom (such as site stats and the subscription box) but all the contact information is now a drop down menu (Flickr, Twitter, and Email Me)!

So do you guys like it? I kind of do. I like the big wide pictures! I ran a test post yesterday and it looks really groovy.

Okie doke, Mom would like the computer so I must be parting.

Leave a comment if I need to change anything. :)

Shady Shades

So this afternoon I talked to Ashley (from Journeys of a Seedling and Domestic Genius). She is one of my fellow photographer friends and I hadn’t talked to her in a while so it was nice to catch.

We talk mostly about photography and our blogs. She wanted an opinion about her new blog, Domestic Genius, on how it looked and stuff. I thought it looked great and I’m sure she would like some other opinions. Anyways, of course we rambled on about photography junk. We discussed lenses and camera bodies, and of course Leica. She photographs with a Leica M8 which is pretty stinking awesome!

Another photographic thing we discussed was photo-blogging. Ashley shares the same view as me about pho-blogging. We both don’t like uploading bad photographs. What I mean by this is not quality-wise (like grainy-ness or compression junk) but more or less the quality of the photo such as composition and such. When she mentioned this, it made me thing about P365. As you know, I don’t always upload a picture that I took from that day, and it’s because of that. I don’t like bad photos on my blog. I don’t want people to see a bad photo. And that’s why I don’t upload a picture that i took everyday. Because most of the time, I took a photo that day, but it was a bad photo and I never wanted people to see a bad photo.

I know it seems silly, but I honestly don’t think it is. I want to show people that I have talent and know what I’m doing. If I upload a crummy photo, what;s that show people? Well that even I take bad photos and I’m not perfect but still! I just don’t like looking at bad photos. And since I don’t like it, I don’t think I should incorporate that into my blog.

So yeah, that all seems like a bunch of babbling garbage, but I had to get it out of my mind. Because I realize that now that I’m reaching the end of P365, I havent always photographed everyday. Anyway, I’m going to save that discussion for a later post. Because I have a lot to say about My P365. Now for a photo.

Day 348 – So like I was saying about, I don’t like uploading bad photos, and this one isn’t a good photo. But I took it today and I’ve wanted to finish P365 strong, i.e., Upload a photo a day, that I took that day, no matter what.

I think its kinda cool. It’s not my usual style though.

Well hopefully you understand what I’m saying. If not. Well I try to clarify in a later post.
