Now that the site is up and running again, what’s new? (Other than, y’know, the entire look?) What’s still on my to-do list?
The print shop is now open! I’ve wanted to do this for years, but kept dragging my feet. Right now, it’s a fairly limited selection, and I’m only shipping to Canada and the US. But I plan to expand my offerings (and open up international shipping) soon. Soon-ish. If there’s another photo you’d like to buy (or if you live outside of Canada and the US), drop me a line and I’ll see what I can do.
Most of the regularly-scheduled posts that would have happened during the hiatus have been added to the archives. I like having these little reference points, and I didn’t want to skip them:
- Snapshot #194 (26 December 2021) (Plus a bonus cat photo!)
- Inspired (November-December 2021)
- Snapshot #195 (9 January 2022)
- Snapshot #196 (23 January 2022)
- Snapshot #197 (6 February 2022)
- Snapshot #198 (20 February 2022)
- Snapshot #199 (6 March 2022)
- Snapshot #200 (20 March 2022)
- Snapshot #201 (3 April 2022)
- Snapshot #202 (17 April 2022)
There’s also a Cultural Consumption post coming within the next few days that covers the last quarter of 2021, which will be the last post in that series. (Likewise, the November-December ’21 Inspired post is the last link roundup.)
Remember how I said that I’d be letting go of some of the things that cause unnecessary stress?
Those series are some of the biggest offenders.
I still plan to share links and talk about the books and movies that I love, but without the strict deadlines (that I regularly missed) and feeling of obligation.
The newsletter is still on hiatus. To be honest, for a few weeks there, I was pretty sure I was going to shut it down entirely. But I have ideas for it now. I think I can figure out how to maintain it without feeling like it’s a lot of work for minimal reward.
When I’m ready to relaunch, I’ll post about it here.
The photo portfolio is still a work in progress. This is actually the part of the redesign that slowed me down the most. I would’ve been ready to go almost a month ago, but I still haven’t found a way to show off my photos that I’m happy with.
However, unlike the last time I redesigned the site, I’m not going to just let the placeholder version sit. I’m going to figure out a solution—hopefully before summer—and fix it soon. (Soon-ish.)
Other than that, the site’s mostly been been given a fresh coat of paint and slightly easier navigation. Take a look around and let me know what you think!
