I am back. For a little while anyway. I hope the new year has been treating you well. This is the start of a lot of new things. First of all, welcome to the letter A of my new A-Z photography project. Read more about this new project here. I am starting from A, and will be working my way to Z throughout the year.
I am so happy to start this project. I imagine it will be a fun exercise to open my eyes even wider to find the shapes of the letters in the alphabet around me.
The word I picked for letter A in this post is Adios.
You may wonder why Adios, Spanish word for farewell/goodbye, is the one I picked for my first instalment of this project in the first blog that I am posting this year. It’s my goodbye to this -.wordpress.com- blog, you guys. But wait. There’s more. I am not saying goodbye to blogging forever or to you; I am just saying goodbye to ‘my photos and things’ address, because I am moving it to a bigger and (hopefully) better location.
Yes, I am moving. Yes, it is exciting, and no, the new place is not ready yet. So, I hope you would be patient with me a moment longer. I am a newbie to handle my own domain, site, etc, so it will take some time for me to successfully move everything to the new site. My plan is to move all of my blog content from here to my new site* and to do a redirect so that anyone who comes to the old blog will be directed to the new address. Google search and ‘how to’ sites are going to by my ‘best friends’/technical experts this time around, to help me to pull this off. Feel free to drop a line if you have some useful tips for me.
Why the move you asked? Well, I want to open shop! Yay! I’ve been picking up some photography work here and there. The time to test the water is over, now it’s time to jump. It’s scary as hell to make the jump, but I think I am ready for it. I want to show the world that I am (finally) open for business. Very soon anyway.
I am aware that some of you are following my blog through wordpress and you see my post from your Reader. I’m afraid you will no longer see my post in your Reader list anymore, BUT, to stay connected, you can later subscribe to my new site, or you can also follow me via twitter, instagram and G+ for my updates. I hope I won’t lose you, but if I do, I would -try not to get too depressed and try hard to- understand. I thank you for your support these past three years I’ve been here.
This post will be up for several days, if I don’t mess up, that is, so I guess for me too I have to bid farewell to my very first photo blog. Goodbye myphotosandthings.wordpress.com. It’s been fun.
I hope I still see you all in my new place.
*My new site is www.ayusrimoyo.com, in case you are wondering, and it will open soon
Looking forward to your new place Ayu! I always love your pictures and writing, so am excited for you!
thanks so much Ria. Such kind words…you’ll be seeing me soon.
