We're moving!! a new blog

Howdy! I hope everyone is having a fantastic week. I am in the process of setting up a new and improved blog! I am absolutely stoked about it. My photos will be amazing, my words will be riveting and my posting inspiration renewed...I hope. ;-)

I hope to have things up and running over there in the next few days. I have a big fancy weekend of nothingness but intense web time. I'm talking hosting/domain/database/URL/IP address/bandwidth/posting tutorial madness. You're jealous, right? I feel like if I ever get this thing up and running I will be able to hack the President's email. (kidding...kind of) You would think being married to a MIS major would come in handy in such situations, but Mr. Lens Envy seems to have a full plate himself. Needless to say this set-up should be an interesting adventure for me.

Another big change taking place will be the content of the blog. It will include my Lens Envy posts, news, and photos (in a slightly different format) and also some of my personal posts and family ventures. I think it will be fun for the readers--friends, family, clients and everyone in between--to see it all. I say all the time that my clients are like friends and family and Lens Envy is my why not combine the two?

Anyway, when this new bad baby is officially open for business, you will be the firsts to hear about it. When I make the big announcement I do hope that you will all follow me there.

Have a great Friday and much love to you!

Blog Overload

I have officially reached my limit of photos on this blog. What does that mean? I cannot upload more photos without purchasing more storage space. I knew this day would come and I would be forced to decide: do I stay with this current blog format or switch to new? I am not purchasing more space yet because I may move my blog over to another host and re-format everything. Until I have made that decision my blogs of each session will have links to a gallery of photos instead of the photos being posted directly on here.

I love being able to share each session and the details of each sweet client, so I never want that to change. I currently have a personal blog telling about everything that happens in my day to day life and I have this one. It could mean that the two will be combined in the near future. Nothing major is changing for now--you will see a slideshow instead of individual photos, but this blog may look different in the future. If I switch to another host I will use one that allows you to add it to your blog roll, RSS feed or Google Reader.

Just a little update. :) Happy Saturday!
