On a somewhat related note (related to photography, that is), the Nature Blog Network recently announced that they have broadened the range of categories to which members can attribute their blogs. We can still choose only one category for our blog, but now we have approximately 30 categories to choose from instead of 10.
I started out in the Network categorized as "Birds", but now I see how much my focus changes depending on the season and what happens to be right in front of me (and my camera) at any given moment. I still love birds, don't get me wrong, and come fall and winter they will likely come back to the fore again, but the main thing that drives this blog (and my reason to blog) is Photography... so I've changed my category to that. I'm so glad it was finally added as an option over on the Network!
And... I'm very excited to announce that in order to further my photographic efforts, I have created a new blog, Photography of the Hills. I will still maintain Heather of the Hills in its current format, so don't worry, this blog isn't going anywhere. I just need a slightly different format - a different vibe, if you will - for sharing what I feel is the more artistic side of my photography.
It's funny, when I first started my nature blog, back in the day before I had any followers or much of a readership at all, there was some little voice in the back of my mind that said I needed a blog specifically devoted to photography. Of course at that time, I was new to the whole blogging thing, and the idea seemed quite crazy. But now I have a better grasp of things, and the time just feels right to make this move. So I hope you'll at least have a look at the new site, and maybe even consider checking in on it from time to time. I promise I'll give lots of eye candy over there!
Here's a preview:
I hope to see you there!
