Good Afternoon Everybody,
I knew I was getting close but today is the day. Yep, it’s my 2000th post here at DigitalProTalk.com! That means to date at DigitalProTalk that you can read over 1.4 million words on Photography, Lighting, Photoshop, Lightroom, Business Building, Sales, and Marketing – and most ALL of it is original content!
You can view over 500 “Image of The Day” posts most with all the EXIF data and back story of each shot.
You can also view over 100 video tutorials on Lighting, Lightroom, Photography, and Photoshop posted over these last 24+ months.
So how many words is that? Well, if you had to read Tolstoy’s “War and Peace” in high school - as I did – and it was a long read totaling over 560,000 words, then DPT to date is well over twice as long.
In those early days, it was tough to get the posts up on a daily basis. Even today, many times, even when time is short, I always managed to get the posts up many times to the consternation of my blog editor.
And my blog editor? – Well, a GREAT BIG thanks goes to LaDawn who proofs nearly all the posts, correcting my miss-wording or miss-spellings along the way hopefully making things easier for you to read and understand each day.
It’s been quite a literary journey. I owe another giant thank you to my uber-blogging buddy, Scott Kelby, who encouraged me to give blogging a try more than two years ago. Scott also gave me the most important piece of advice for blogging success, “If you don’t feed the MONSTER it will die.” Thanks Scott for all your wisdom, advice and support along the journey.
It was Scott who emailed me early one Sunday morning after 18 months of “5-day a week” non-stop blogging and asked, “So, are you ready to write your book yet?” I was shocked at the prospect, but answered a cautious … Yes.
Lastly, I want to thank all of you loyal DPT readers – 1.6 million visitors from over 198 countries worldwide and over 7000 strong nearly everyday! If you keep reading, sharing the blog and information, making your comments… I’ll keep writing!
Thanks everybody. See ya’ on Monday with blog post #2001, David
