First blog post. What to talk about?
Well, after years and years of talking about trying to turn my photography hobby into a career, I'm finally making moves to make it happen. One year from now, I'll either be earning enough money at this to, you know, eat food and stuff, or I won't. In which case I'll probably be teaching English somewhere sandy and a bit behind-the-times on social issues.
So what is involved in trying to "go pro?" Hell if I know, I'm pretty much hoping to figure it as I go, and hoping that the quality of my photographs will be sufficient to carry me forward. Getting this website looking how I want hasn't been particularly difficult, but www.glennlewisphotography.com is only one of several places I'm trying to get my name out. I'm making "Glenn Lewis Photography" accounts on Flickr (I think it's a few years past its prime), 500px (which seems like a good site for sharing photos), Smugmug (where I basically have a clone of this site up), and Facebook. If I ever get a more modern phone than this one ...
...maybe I'll even have to get Tweeter or whatever it's called. Man, I'm already a grandpa, and I'm only 32.
I think that's enough for now. I'm going to have to make an effort to update all of my websites and blogs and whatnot pretty regularly from here on out, so I guess I'll try and keep these things brief, so I don't run out of stuff to talk about.
