I'm so glad you found me! I'm a San Francisco photographer, and this blog charts my journey in the ever-evolving world of photography. One of the things I love about photography is that it's a journey, not a destination. I'm constantly learning and meeting wonderful people. Please peruse the blog to your heart's content, then check out my website and feel free to contact me! (I love hearing from you.)

State of the Blog, Part 2

First of all, I'd like to thank everyone profusely who took the time to do the survey on the blog last week. I'd like especially to thank those who commented in depth or emailed me because they didn't simply want to check a box and call it done.

I've said it before, but I'll say it again: this blog would be nothing without its readers. I appreciate all of you so much. Thanks for putting up with me!

So, what did the survey tell me? Well, it told me that quite a few people don't really care whether I post religiously every day. And it also told me that most would prefer that I talk about photography on the blog, which is hardly surprising. I really have been meaning to do more posts about gear, technique, post processing, and all of that, but I just haven't made the time to really sit down and do that well. So I'll be sure to put that on the list for the future.

Interestingly enough, the second largest group of responders didn't care what I post about. I'm going to take a wild guess and venture to say that those seven people were probably family and friends. Still, thanks for the unconditional support, guys!

So, what's going to change? Well, not too much. I'll probably cut down to five posts a week, give or take one depending on the week. That just seems eminently more manageable. I'm not saying I will NEVER post on weekends, just that I'll now view it as optional. I'm also going to make a concerted effort to increase the quality of the posts, even though that's rather hard to measure. And I'll try harder to talk about photography in all its forms.

Anyway, once again, thank you so much for all of your feedback. It's so nice to feel like I'm not shouting just to hear the echoes of my own voice!
