Blog Photo Outtakes!

I take a lot of pictures. A looooot of pictures. For my blog, my Instagram, my home, and my family. If you’ve read my tips on taking quality photos, this is simply par for the course. The more pictures to choose from, the better!

However, not every picture makes the cut. Some might not turn out good, others I might not like, or it might just be that my post has too many images and I’m trying to cut down on assets. Read more…

Blogging Through the Years (and a Giveaway!)

On October 19, 2001, I launched my very first webpage. It looked like this:

Annual Blog Statistics

It’s been a year since I’ve gone back to blogging. I thought it might be fun list out my annual statistics because I like quantifiable information. The following info pertains only to the previous year.

Little Town Stats

Total Number of Entries: 58
Not bad! There were times when I felt very motivated to write, other times I felt like I had nothing to say at all. I thought of quitting again at one point last year because I was feeling jaded about blogging all over again, but I stuck it out. Read more…
