It's All In The Details
(c) Misty DawnS

Well, I haven't closed down this blog yet. So, I decided to post a photo for you. This is a female Widow Skimmer dragonfly, and I took this photo way back in 2007, even before I had a DSLR camera! I really like how the details of the wings came out in this photo, especially considering I didn't increase the sharpness or do any other post-editing (other than cropping) to this photo at all.

So, here's the thing about the blog. I definitely need to do something different. I definitely need to make blogging more about making me happy and being a creative outlet for me. I was almost convinced to shut this blog down and start anew. Then, I decided to think on it a bit more. I thought about *gasp* losing the past 3 1/2 years of posts. Even though I've made mistakes along the way, this blog and most of the posts mean something to me. I also had a big boost of confidence which had the most ironic timing, when a photographer friend informed me that his wife is a long time reader of My Dogs Keep Me Sane, and he just now realized that I was the author of this blog. That really meant a lot at a time I really needed it!

So, I'm not ready to give up this blog just yet. That's not to say there aren't going to be some big and major changes (this is where any of you who are web designers or have information technology jobs feel free to jump in and volunteer ideas and assistance. hehehehe). It's also not to say that I won't start a strictly photo-blog. I'm not completely sure yet, all I'm sure about is that I don't think I'm ready to take that Maggie May puppy blog header down... yet. We'll see...

Lose everything from 3 1/2 years? That would be like losing a finger or maybe two.
The Widow Skimmer detail is fabulous, Misty. I'm glad you don't want to lose all your blog posts if this is what you can do without a digital SLR.
*Gasp* is right!
Making changes, well, that is your right. It's your blog. I'm probably going to make some, too, some day. C'est la vie.
