I have been blessed by the longevity I’ve had so far with my writing online (over 7 years and nearly 1,100 posts). It hasn’t always been easy coming up with new and interesting things to say but with the encouragement, support, and participation of my readers I have been lucky enough to continue on down this exciting road.
Whether it’s through comments, submissions to my various projects or contests, or sponsorship it is because of all of you that this blog has grown into the Photoshop & Photography Community that it is. And I couldn’t have done it without you!
As my regular readers know, I am always striving to pay forward the knowledge and opportunities I have received by giving my readers a forum to show their work, connect with experts in the field to share their insights, review photos, software and books, and provide training, all in an effort to help you grow in your own work and become a better photographer, Photoshop user, and a more creative person.
If you’ve been coming here for news, information, and inspiration, for any length of time, I’d like to invite you take the next step to help make this site even better. First off, I’d like to ask you to share it with others you know who might be interested in what we offer. Put up a link, write a post, send out an email talking about what you’ve gotten out of this blog. The more people we have here, the more the community will be enriched.
I’d also like to invite you to leave comments or send me emails about what you think about a post, any Photoshop or photography questions you might have, ideas, whatever! I always love hearing from all of you, and I assure you that I read every comment and email that comes through. Let me know what you think!
Participate. Send in a shot for the Points of View project. Submit a photo to be reviewed. Enter my monthly photo contests. I invite you to take a more active role here on the blog. Have something you’ve created that you’d like to share with a wider audience? Write up your workflow and send it in! Have some thoughts about a certain topic, program, or service? Put together an article and email me! I am always welcoming of guest bloggers with interesting perspectives to offer.
Finally, I would like to invite all of you to consider sponsoring this blog in some way. Whether it’s a small donation to the site, a prize for an upcoming contest, a sponsorship for a particular series, or a general blog sponsorship with a leaderboard, sidebar, or a footer ad on every post – whatever you feel comfortable doing – I would like to ask for your help as I continue to bring quality content each and every day. Through a sponsorship you will also be putting your site, brand, or product in front of thousands of visitors every month. To find out more about sponsorship opportunities and to contact me directly, please check our my sponsors page.
As I work to turn my passion into my profession and share the joy of Photoshop & Photography with a larger and larger audience of creative people, please think about how you can help enrich our community with your support through one more of the avenues I mentioned above.
