Today is the 2nd anniversary of my blog. No picture for today, only a few things I want to say and see what other people think.
A lot has happened in the last two years and I had a great time updating the blog every day, it was not always easy but it was worth it. I met a lot of great people from all over the world through this blog and have learned a lot about photography since I started it.
Last year I even had the chance to publish a book on the GRD III for Ricoh and have some of my pictures printed and displayed in the window of the biggest camera store in Düsseldorf.
I have now uploaded the book to Blurb and you can get it by following the link below:
You can also download a pdf version here or see the web version here.
Now after two years I wonder where to go from now and if it is not time to make some changes to the blog and/or the format.
I have been thinking to maybe start a new website which is more dedicated to photography and showcase my pictures better, like Zenfolio, or maybe change the format of the blog and post only when there is something to post instead of daily?
Maybe I should focus more on the camera and hardware reviews on my wordpress blog?
Should I just go on as before and see how far I can get?
How about the content of my posts, should it remain the same or focus more on specific themes (photography, post processing, gear, all of this)?
There are also quite a few of my older pictures that I like and would want to post but with running the blog and doing other things it is not easy to go through older pictures.
At the same time I would also like to create more books and get more pictures printed, creating a book takes time so maybe I should focus more on this.
One of the main questions is also the name of my blog, should it remain the same or should I change it to something more general? I have thought of changing the name to 'One Day, One Picture' if I keep the format but this is already taken so will have to see what other name would fit.
In order to give me time to think about the future of my blog, I have decided to take a short 1 week break from posting. Don't worry though, I will not stop taking pictures and will be back next Friday. Instead I will use the break to write my review of the GXR and start working on my next book project.
