Blood, Sweat, and Tears

Over the weekend a lot has been going on here…and rather than regale you with the “honey do” list (like toting rocks around the yard), I’ll get to the more fun stuff that is likely more interesting (and also more photography related)…First off – went to meet up with my boss at a hockey game he was coaching.  Took the camera along both to take a whirl at sports photography, but also to run another test lens through it’s paces.  That was probably the best part of the day, and a few decent shots came out of that:

Next up –  some re-codification of the blog. After realizing some reporting errors and general wonkiness with plugins, theme-specific settings and other stuff, I poured through some of the resources available online and have come up with a new layout that should work.  For those of you reading through feeds, you’re just going to have to visit to see a potential new “facelift” for the blog.  It’s got a lot going for it, including:

  • Easy Navigation and Drop-Down Menus
  • Recent Posts (with images – top sidebar)
  • Podcast History (Show Notes – right sidebar)
  • Contest History (Bottom Slider)
  • …and much more

It’s not set in stone of course though, so would love to hear what people think of the layout, appearance, content, etc.  There are some redundancies, and the categories are also in the midst of the 4th quarter clean-up, but hopefully things are moving in the right direction.  So, stop over, kick the tires, see if you like the layout!  (And who knows – you may find some content in the new navigation menu that you previously didn’t know about! 🙂 )

Finally, I got to work on the October newsletter.  Unfortunately, there simply were not enough hours in the weekend to get it all done.  So, there has been a slight reprieve!  If you’ve not signed up for the October newsletter yet – there’s still time!  For those that have already, it’s coming…very soon!


More tk…

Happy shooting and we’ll see you back here again tomorrow!

    What lens did you use at the hockey game?
