Still here!

Sorry I haven't posted much lately. You may have noticed the "Recent Deviations" side bar on the left hand side of the page. I've been putting together a gallery on Deviant Art and it's taken up most of my free time lately -deciding what I want to put on DA, editing those images because I needed to take a second pass at most of them, and also copy some of the tutorials that I've written here.

The hard part is deciding which way to go: Right now I've got three galleries. One of them, Deviant Art, also has blog functionality built in. I'm pretty sure that I'm going to collapse at least one of the galleries (either Flickr or SmugMug) but I'm not sure what to do with this blog. Either I'm going to do all of my blogging here and just post links to the new posts on DA, or I'm going close this blog completely and change the DNS redirect for to point to my DA journal...

Stay here, p-p-p-please?

Do what I'm doing: Maintain your blog for guides, tutorials and (duh) blogging. Merge with your flickr account to have your images stored safely there and keep an easy-to-maintain online gallery.

Whatever you choose, keep it clean and simple like this blog - and make damn sure it has an RSS feed. Every time my RSS ticker shows a new post from No Cropping Zone I get a chance to tell the missus: "Look hun, thats why I need to spend $$$ on a macro lens and flash!"

Great pictures, keep posting.

Interesting, I was on DeviantArt ages ago and it was slow... very slow. I like your blog set up here like spook said, great to come via the RSS feed... hope you stay on Flickr too! :)

Thanks spook and Jason!

What I will probably do is dual post both here and DA. But I think I might close my SmugMug gallery and just use DA and Flickr.
