Focus The Frame is Back!

Added on by J.D. Magers.

Where have you been?  Welcome back.  After an extended, unintentional yet intentional layoff from writing on the blog, I am back.  I have energy, and I'm raring to go to get this thing fired up again.  So where have I been?  Well, this happened:

So as you can imagine, things got pretty crazy around my house.  The four year old is acting as four year olds do when they suddenly have competition for mommy and daddy's attention.  Things are settling down now though, and my mind has returned to my muse.  Photography is calling.  I'm interested in shooting at all waking hours of the day.  I'm interested in trying to make some cash from my photography so I can afford to put these two through school!

So I've been listening to a bunch of podcasts on my way to work.  Mostly having to do with how to be a better blogger, whether it's through generating copy that people want to read, to monetizing the blog through smart passive income.  I also listen to This Week in Photo, which is a progressive, this is what's coming down the road to be aware of in photography type program.  So I have a lot of things to think about, and I have lots of ideas on how I can transform this blog to something that can help inspire other photographers to follow their dreams and learn.  I know there are thousands of similar blogs, but I don't care.  I think I have something to offer so I'm going to give it a shot.  Hopefully you'll find what I have to say interesting and keep coming back for more.
