FRIENDS!!

friends-1

ONE THOUSAND of you, specifically!  wow – THANK YOU!

that seems like a really big number to me.  it makes me feel very humble. and it makes me so grateful that THAT MANY PEOPLE find what i have to say valuable, interesting, or at least somewhat entertaining enough to make a simple gesture like click the “follow” button…

in the two years that food & foto has had life, i have found myself growing and changing right along with the blog.  from refining what it is all about, to being honest and open about things, to many twists and turns – we’re almost parallel, my blog and me.

i just was blown away today when i had my 1000th follower sign up to join the fun!  and it inspired me to want to do something special to honour it.

and what better to do just that – than a GIVEAWAY!!!???!!!?!!!??!?!

the big question is – what?!  what do i give away?  it can be anything i want, i suppose.  i could find a vendor that wanted to donate something… meh. i can do that anytime.  i could give away some healthy-eating coaching… meh. i kind of do that already.  i could donate a portrait session… meh. been there, done that. i could give away a camera?!?!  dude, that would be amazing… but i don’t have one to give away…

hmph.

would a beautiful print from my lab suffice?  your choice – a personalized print from my portfolio.  i have an extensive one, you know… portraits, landscapes, editorial, street photography, NYC, california, rocky mountains, macro, food, fine art… what’s your pleasure?!

and my goodness, how do i get people to get involved?

why, you already are!!!  just by following my blog, you are already automatically entered in the drawing for a free fine art print of your choice!  i will give away 5 prints before the end of April.  I will post a blog with choices and the lucky 5 winners will win a print of their choice.

how’s that sound?!

mostly, i just wanted to do SOMETHING to show my appreciation to each of you for following my blog. as i’ve mentioned, this is my personal little playground and i love engaging and hearing from each of you.  i may not always respond, but i want to take this time to tell you how much i appreciate the support!  as an introvert, knowing what i have to say in print matters… matters.

🙂

thanks!

right around july this year, my blog really took a turning point. i have fine-tuned what it is i want this blog to represent.  i have collected some dedicated readers, and i’ve also created a dedicated set of specific blogs i post each corresponding day of the week.  it feels nice to have some structure.

if i had time, i’d post 7-days a week.  and hopefully very soon i will be able to do that.  my “day job” is going great, and my foto job is starting to take a turn as well, for the better.  i am digging all the positive change happening in my life lately.  i’m so beyond grateful…

and since march when i began this blog – i’ve created a cool 127 posts, stacked up over 250 followers, and graciously received over 1,000 likes.

so… THANKS! 🙂

i appreciate you.

and you know what else i appreciate? Continue reading
