As you might have noticed, I hadn’t blogged in a while. In fact, for a long time, there wasn’t a link to the blog up there on the menu bar. A couple of reasons for this, though no excuse is really good enough for not sharing anything but photos.
- Because of performance issues with my previous host, 1and1.com, we ended up moving 75centralphotography.com to a new host, Dreamhost. Because our bread-and-butter is photography and not writing, our focus was making a smooth transition for the main photoblog to the new host and, thus, deferring migration of this seldom-updated blog until a later date. However, that later date kept getting pushed back for months until now. Why? Laziness, really. No other excuse beyond that. Oh, and I started a new day job a while back that has been taking up a lot of my time. That and an unanticipated move from one Dallas suburb to another that destroyed any will to write a bit for a long time.
- We knew it would be time-consuming to migrate. Which follows on from point 1.
- The blog never got as much traffic as the main site. Of course it wouldn’t…we’re in the business of making photos, not making writings.
- Finally, I kind of just forgot about it. After all, the photoblog is our focus. We’ve shared fine photos daily for over 11 years straight now and we didn’t want to slow down.
At any rate, I’m going to start blogging and sharing interesting things again. It will still be somewhat-seldom, but at least I’m doing it.
That said, the migration is mostly-complete. We’re still fixing some borked links and re-uploading some media that was lost in the transition, so please be patient. If you find anything weird, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
