One of the biggest hurdles we must overcome when we begin any creative endeavor is getting past the honeymoon phase of, “look at this awesome thing I created” and on to the more realistic and productive phase of, “just because I created it doesn’t make it awesome.” Read more…
Wow. I can’t believe it’s been almost three months since PetaPixel was started back on May 14th. Things have gotten pretty exciting since then, both here on this blog and with our Twitter account.
This is an open thread for you to comment on whatever you’d like. I’ll be reading each and every comment left on this thread.
Have any questions or suggestions about PetaPixel? Ask and I’ll answer them.
Want to promote your own blog, photoblog, or website? Go ahead!
How are you enjoying our twitter updates? Should we post more frequently? Less? Have anything you’d like us to link to?
I would also really appreciate it if you suggest some popular photographers or photobloggers for us to interview. We’re always on the lookout for new faces.
Finally, if there’s any article you would love to see on PetaPixel, please suggest these as well. You can even just comment the titles of articles you would like to see.
That’s all. Eager to see how this open thread experiment goes. Looking forward to hearing from you!
One of the things we’d like to regularly feature on PetaPixel are interviews and guest posts from outside photographers and photobloggers. I have a pretty solid lineup of noteworthy photobloggers that will soon be interviewed for this site, but was wondering if any of you had suggestions for people you’d like to hear from.
If you have any people in mind, please leave a comment and suggest them!
