If I am going to change anything with latenyte.com it’s going to be everything! I’m creating graphics, new content and new pages to go with the 2019 layout of latenyte.com. In 2018 I made stuff as I went, constantly changing things, because I didn’t know what I was doing or what I could do. With 100 days under my belt, I now have a good idea where I would like to go next year.
First, I’m not very happy with the limitations I have with WordPress. It is either use a template or no WordPress. Every attempt to add custom html has led to my want to throw my mouse, phone or laptop. The classic and new editor in a WordPress suck if you know what is actually possible when designing a site. Since I am limited by budget and not imagination, I am attempting to take something that was designed for something else and make it work for me. Almost exactly like I was trying to do with my camera.
Here are a few milestones I have accomplished in the first 100 days of latenyte photography:
- Have read 6 books on photography and completed 3 online courses. I am on lesson 9 of “Photography for Beginners” on Park Review’s site, it’s a good read.
- Acquired my first digital camera, the Nikon Coolpix P530.
- Purchased a domain and hosting for first year.
- Purchased 12 books, basics for light box, battery charger and a 2nd battery.
- Published 75 posts that were viewed over 850 times.
- Started selling stock photos on Adobe Stock. 130+ images have been submitted and almost half have been approved for sale.
- Got the featured photo for week 6 of Proscenium‘s Friday Follies.
- Let’s not forget the two heart attacks and other health problems…
I’m excited about what 2019 has to offer. What I am really excited about is losing a person. I found out at the doctor before Thanksgiving that I am down 100+ pounds from what I weighed a year ago. It’s amazing what can happen when you question those you trust to care for your health. I was having bad side effects from medications I was taking. So I fired my primary care physician and quit taking the meds when he wasn’t bothered by me gaining 10 pounds a month.
Thanks to all that have given me feed back, to those with sites that I like to visit and a special thanks to those that participate on latenyte.com in the future!
