I'm so excited about this, I plan to take my first photos just after midnight on New Year. Then to try and get that one that describes the New Year party experience for someone...am I up to this I wonder. I've never wished so much for a better camera...and more talent.

Thanks tcguru for sending me the rest of the links that I had missed and thanks for pointing out the error in Ursula's link, kteach! Her name was spelled incorrectly in the link. Should be updated now.

I just got a new (but kind of cheapy) studio light kit with two strobes. So excited to try it out - I'm still undecided about whether I'll go with the theme idea for this year's photoblog or just try to get things up there. Might be fun to pick a theme,though. The posts in this thread have given me some ideas. That combined with my little studio set, well, maybe there will be some themes in my Pad/PaW about lighting and how it works.

Hi guys - I guess I am in as well and typically late too! My PAW is hosted on the blogger site at obsidians-paw so please feel free to stop by and have a cup of tea.

I have no idea how to add the other PAW sites to blogger yet but I will do so over the next few days, as well as decide on my theme!

This could be an interesting journey...

A PAW sounds a lot better than a POD.. I'd have time to do that..

You can check mine @ //www.joshfriesen.com

OK. I have added some of the other players in the PAW to my site but is there a definitive list out there that I can use to include everyone?

Thanks!

And thanks for the comments, too :-)

I've decided on my "theme", it's a hard one, for me :)

ursula's PAW - in focus for 2007
12/29/2006 02:20:03 PM · #158
Ursula, I hope you're not going crazy with this in focus thing. I love your shots just the way they are, but I'm really looking forward to seeing your 2007 blog progress.

Thanks! No, it's just that it's something that I have a terrible time doing, but I think it would be important to learn how to do it.

I think I have a theme now, which reflects what I do as well as I what I enjoy. It is: "Where I Have Been This Week".

A little corny, perhaps, but I travel a lot with my job and never really capture where I have been, so the PAW gives me a perfect excuse to do so.

Of course, I could then decide to constrain this with something like "Where I Have Been This Week in Black & White" but I am mulling this over, carefully. Sigh! Even choosing the theme is tricky :-)

oooooo B&W is my favorite medium! I am eager to see some of those! :D

You gave up on your pixelpost site and changed to blogger? Both links still work, so I want to make sure we're all linking to the right spot! :)

Oh, I sort of gave up on the pixelpost site because I never got any feedback as to whether it worked or not. Or I somehow missed the feedback. Sorry about that.

ANYWAY. I think I'll stick to the BLOGGER site for now, because it works for sure.

you may not be after you some of mine. :/

BUT, that is why I'm doing it -- to get better.

OK, thanks for the feedback. Why the PM to puzzled? Is she compiling the list of links?
12/29/2006 03:00:44 PM · #167
I have compiled a list of links, but it's a mix of everyone from this thread and the other thread. You see, I'm sort of between camps - I want a PAD with a purpose when I feel like it and just a PAD some days, with no theme. There's an old expression, "it's easy to be flexible when you're spineless"... that's my theme, heehee.

I just tested your pixelpost link, Ursula, and it works okay. It's a little slow though, but wasn't broken when I looked. My suggestion is go with what you like the best. Or post to both maybe?

No, I think I will stick with the blogger address for now, I know how to use that one. I will post the link to blogger at the pixelpost place, in case anyone wanders over there.

Would you be so kind to amend the link (//ursulaspaw.blogspot.com/) in your listing? Thank you!

:-) I prefer flexible, but you could be on to something.

Flexible works. I was just teasing you :)
Seriously, sometimes I think we have too many goals in life, almost as if you need to have a goal for everything all the time. Many times it works to just go with stuff and see where it takes you.

If anyone is interested, they can add me to their lists, but I can't promise I'll be able to keep it up every week. If 2007 was anything like this year... Well, let's just hope it's not. :)

I'm definitely in with this and have decided to go with the Doorways & Windows theme I brought up earlier. I've just been checking out different photoblogs and software to decide what I wanted to go with. While Pixelpost was my first choice, my husband (webguy) thought it'd be too much work for him. :) So, it'll probably be with Blogger. I'll post the link when I have it up in a day or so.

I'm pretty excited about this project. The ideas are already stirring. :)
