Never Happy

Yesterday was spent working on my new web site all day long! I became very frustrated with my other hosting site so I decided to make yet another change! This was prompted by the fact that people kept telling my that my site would not load completely and that pictures were missing! I was getting more frustrated by the comment so I decided to check it out for myself and, sure enough, there was a problem!

I emailed the company tech to get help and they got it fixed but by then the damage was done and I had already researched my next host site. I was so excited to find Sitecube because they have everything that I want for my photography web site plus oodles of gallery space for my photos! Yeah! To top it all off, it is cheaper than my old site hoster and and I did not have to pay before I created the new site so I am not being charged on both ends!

The new site should be ready in a couple of days! I just have a few final changes to make and some more photos to add and it will be complete! I cannot wait to share it with you! I will also be selling my nature photography on the site which is something I have not ventured into until now because of limitations with the old site. Which brings me to the tip for today! It has more to do with storage of your photographs as opposed to the actual taking of the photograph itself!

Buy an external hardrive. I have been doing some research and you can get a terrabyte for under $300 which will hold tons of photos. This will help you all the way around because you won't bog down your computer and should said computer decide to do a nose dive into crashville, you will not lose your pictures or documents. Believe me, you will be very excited that your photos are safe when you are taking your old computer to the nearest recycling center!

I keeping with the snow theme since we are getting hit yet again, here is the cutest picture of Sadie roaming in the snow! She was actually walking down the sidewalk yelling at our neighbor, who had just driven away, to come back. Check back to find out when the new site is complete and running!

I'm excited to see the new site when you finish. Be sure to let us know when!

I cannot tell people enough to get an external hard drive. We've had 2 hard drives go, and it is horrible to lose everything. There are cheaper ones if you aren't saving a ton of photos, and it is well worth the money!!! Good tip today.

Hi Jo.
I've been wondering where you have been. Feel free to ask me anyn questions.
I use about 4 externals plus I have an additional one I use to back stuff up with.

Thanks for the tip on the external hardrive.

I'm really looking forward to your new site. I always enjoy your photography. Let me know when you get it up and running. I'd love to share it with my sister, who is also a photographer and always looking for tips. We are also getting hit with another snow storm. Uggg!! It's probably the same one you're getting. Stay warm.
