So this photo, which is currently titled Hoover Dam, (I’m a photographer, not a writer) won Best in Show for the Springs Preserve Photo Contest. I haven’t had a chance to see the whole show yet, but if you get a chance, stop by, take a look at it. Supporting the Springs Preserve is a good thing, and if you’ve never been there before, it’s a cool place in Vegas. The show will be running till the beginning of October.
Just a few FYIs here, my blog will be moving off my homepage on to www.joshhawkins.com/blog/ and I’m having issues with my RSS feed, namely that the images aren’t showing up in the feed. I’m working on that one.
I’m now implementing a host of new services.
First and foremost, if there is an image you want to buy, you should be able to just click on it, maybe twice, once to get to the post, then in the post, and it will take you to my site where you can directly purchase the image.
If you follow the same routine, you can also license the image, if say you own an ad company, or you can get a link that will let you, totally legitimately, post my images in your blog or site. I want people to share my images, I make them to be seen after all, but I do also want the credit and hopefully, some money. So now, you should be able to do that, easily.
My sales site isn’t finished yet, by any means, and it will be a few weeks till it is. Finishing it is a fair amount of work, and the people it’s through are updating some stuff next week so I’m going to wait a few days and do it when it will be easier anyway.
The blog portion of my site will probably be moving off the front page and onto another page, probably named blog, so that people coming here from search engines see what I want them to see first rather than what I did yesterday. This site is still staying a blog, and I’m still going to post everyday, just a slight change of url. I may make it overlap for a week or two, or I may not, but I’ll definitely tell ya when it happens.
Also, maybe not every time, perfectly, right away, but you’ll regularly start seeing footers on my posts (and currently it’s not working, hmm). I feel bad when people come to my site looking for info about hiking around Vegas and I don’t direct them anywhere. So I’m going to try to direct them someplace useful for outdoor info. Also I’m going to encourage people to buy and share my images. So hopefully this happens soon.
The copyright logo is going to change, many times probably. Any useful feedback I’ll take. Thanks in advance for that.
So please bare with me as things change, and in a few weeks when the dust settles and I’ve made my first million, let me know about problems. I would say do so immediately, but I know of way to many I’m working on and hopefully the problem you’re seeing is already on my list, but in a month I’ll need you’re help.
Thanks, and have a good weekend.
I’m still tweaking this image, but it’s coming along nicely.
