With this being my first blog, I’m not exactly sure what this means, but I was nominated for a blog award, The Sunshine Award.
While I’m honored anyone would think of me, I agree with my blogging friend Joanna in her non-acceptance of any of these nominations or awards. Nothing against anyone who nominates anyone, because I truly believe that at the heart of those who are nominating others, there are good intentions. I just agree with Joanna that they’re a bit like the chain e-mails from a decade ago, ‘tell everyone 10 things about yourself and nominate 10 others.’ I tell you all more about me in my daily pictures then 10 random facts could ever tell you, and I’d rather just acknowledge those who nominated me and then use this opportunity to share with you all some of my favorite blogs. That seems like more fun :)
Since I started this blog on January 1 of this year, I had no idea that in 4 months I would have over 5,000 hits, 263 followers, and have reached over 50 countries. It has definitely been cool to join the world of photo bloggers.
First things first, a big thank you to L&L Photography for the nomination. Like I said, it is nice to know others are reading and appreciating your blog. This is a husband and wife photographing team, which I think is just splendid. Right now everyday, they have a Flower Of The Day and a Photo of The Day. Their photographs are very well captured and you can tell there is a great deal of care behind every image. Basically, they don’t mess around.
Some of My Other Favorite Blogs that I Think You Should Check Out:
Denzil Jennings Photography: I met Denzil at one of our mutual friend’s weddings in December, and we were the two coolest people there, since we were both photographers. :) He told me he was going to attempt a 365 day project, and that gave me the inspiration I needed to go ahead and try it as well. So all of this is his fault! haha. Denzil has been capturing some gorgeous pictures while he learns to juggle his busy life and this project.
H20 By Joanna: Joanna’s was one of the first blogs I found when I was new to the WordPress world. She is also attempting a 365 Day project, only with a twist. Every picture she takes has some form of, you guessed it, H20 in the image. I love that idea, adding a twist to a 365 Day project and making it a little more challenging. Joanna has been taking all sorts of cool images that include water, and I can’t wait to see what’s next.
Behind The Lens Photography: Kevin is one of the most recent blogs I started following. He is journeying into photography, and doing a great job. I love finding someone who is new to the art who is already getting a very good grasp on things. You can tell he takes his work seriously, and there are some great images over there.
Focused Moments Photography: Rachael has amazing landscape and nature shots on her site, and I always look forward to what she’ll have up.
365 Photos By Jeremy , Inga Photography, Sarah Takes Pictures, & ShutterbugSage: Four other daily photo project doers. I love following other’s daily photo journeys to see the differences and the similarities between different people shooting everyday. These are all great blogs!
So thank you for following my blog, and go ahead and check out these other great photo bloggers.
