Welcome! Yes, you are in the right place. This is the new look of my blog.
Why all the changes? Well … I wanted my blog and my photo gallery to be integrated into one website so folks can browse around, read my stories, and see my photo gallery at the same time in the same place. That all sounds much easier than it really is, believe me! I’ve been working on this for some time.
I also changed the domain name, which made it all much more complicated, but it had to be done.
The site uses wordpress with a graph paper press theme (modularity) which I customized by creating a child-theme. Then I integrated it with photoshelter which powers the gallery.
So, what does this mean for you? You will now have a much better experience and a cool new “eye” logo to look at! All of the links to my old blog posts will automatically forward here so you don’t have to do anything. If you have a bookmark to my old blog, you could change that to http://blog.annemckinnell.com.
Here are some new things for you:
- Click on the “gallery” link at the top right to check out my photo gallery! I am still working on adding all of my images to it.
- If you want to receive my blog posts in your email rather than coming here all the time, you can do that by subscribing to the blog posts over there in the sidebar on the right where it says “Receive Blog Posts by Email” –>
- Sign up for my newsletter – also on the sidebar on the right. I will send you my latest photography tutorials, excerpts from the most popular blog posts from the past month, ideas on changing careers and business planning, my latest images, and free wallpapers delivered to your inbox once each month — or so. I will also send you a FREE copy of my first eBook which should be ready in the next few weeks.
Please leave me a comment and let me know how beautiful my new site is I also accept other forms of praise, constructive criticism and useful feedback.
Since I am trying on new things for size, here is an image that is much different from my usual thing. I always admire the minimalist long-exposure black and whites by other photographers so I decided to give it a shot myself. I made it at dawn in Charleston, South Carolina.
