Effective immediately, I will be changing the tack of new postings on this blog. I created this as an experiment originally, wanting to see how well received a Beau Photo information and announcement blog would be. In addition, I wanted to experiment with blogging my own images and gallery content on a more regular basis, versus less frequent website updates. Heck, my website is, at the moment, horribly out of date, finishing at the end of 2009 as far as image gallery content goes!
Anyway, this blog has been quite well received by Beau Photo customers so far, and despite the minimal "followers" that are visibly subscribing, I know there are many more checking it out on a regular basis. The feedback has been very good overall, so I have created a new store-wide Beau Photo Blog, with a permanent link in the Pages section on the right as well. From this point forward, this blog will simply be about items of personal interest, image galleries, trip blogs, photo projects, announcements of updates to my website and so on. Beau Photo content will be minimized here and the vast majority will be posted directly to the Beau Photo blog in the future.
At this point, I am not sure how feasible it will be to move my existing Beau Photo related postings to the new blog. Not very possible, as far as I can tell, at least not without an enormous amount of work. I will probably create a filtered link back to this blog from the Beau Photo blog and I may remove all the Beau Photo related categories from here as well, to avoid the clutter - In Stock at Beau, Rebates, Sales and so on. Those categories will no longer be relevant to future content I post here.
If anyone has any comments or observations about this blog split, or has suggestions for the fledgling Beau Photo Store Blogs, please feel free to drop me a line: click Contact Info on the right under the Pages heading.
The Beau Photo blog is quite new and there are only a few entries so far, but in the very near future all the various departments should start posting their own entries, announcements and articles. Each department has a link at the top, and you can filter the blog by department in that way to narrow down the entries to what interests you. Hover over the department links for a description. The default blog home page, or clicking the "All" departments link at any time, will show everything mixed together with the newest entry always at the top. So in reality, it is only one blog with entries categorized by department. Cosmetically, it will likely change a little bit over time and become a little more customized. For now I have tried to keep the look similar enough to this digital imaging blog with the hope that people won't suddenly feel "lost"!
For those who have been reading this for Beau Photo related tidbits, thank you for your interest and please head on over to the http://www.beauphoto.blogspot.com for future entries and articles!
For those viewing this blog mainly for my images and photography, you can expect more frequent updates in the future. I always hesitated to post too many image entries and personal items, thinking I would bury Beau Photo related content too quickly. Now I don't have to worry about that anymore. In the near future, I will be changing the banner for this blog to reflect its new focus and I may change the layout slightly as well.
Anyway, once again, thanks for your interest in my blog and I hope to keep seeing you here in the future! And be sure to check out and subscribe to the Beau Photo blogs too...
