Moving Hosts

Last year, a website was set up on WordPress.com for a client,
 The Art of Living and Dying, a group of women helping those facing life’s highs and lows with practical information and professional support. The group required a single page website for event and contact information.

Over the weekend, the website was quickly moved over to a self hosted WordPress install to give the site a full range of functionality and customisation options that a self hosted WordPress installation provides.

The domain name changed too with the Art of Living and Dying now found at https://www.theartoflivinganddying.co.uk

Ten Years on Twitter

By |2018-10-16T14:25:52+00:00October 16th, 2018|Categories: News|Tags: , , , |

October 15th marked a special anniversary. It’s ten years since i signed up for my @richflintphoto Twitter account at 1.43pm on October 15th 2008. 
With the large and very active photography community regularly discussing everything photography, it’s become my number one source for keeping up-to-date with news and events in the photography world.

The last decade on Twitter has been a interesting journey, though the first few months saw little in the way of tweeting. Having set up my account i just didn’t know what to do with Twitter! Fortunately by January 2009, I’d slowly started to figure out how i could use my new Twitter account. Over the years my approach to tweeting has changed quite a lot. Just like most people’s first tweets, mine won’t win any awards. Most of the time i use Twitter as a quick way to link to photography i think people should see.  I even tweet about i’m up to occasionally!

It’s not always been a smooth journey though. Like many other social media networks, it can be intense at times, even overwhelming. A data stream overload of images and opinions rushing by you like speeding traffic. A number of times I’ve been very tempted to delete the account, but fortunately I’ve never acted on the impulse. I’m glad i haven’t. It does have value and i’d miss it. Twitter’s strength is the great community it builds who that only informs but educates too. I’m just thankful to be a small part of it.

Twitter’s future seems pretty secure. Fortunately it hasn’t really changed that much in the last ten years. The recent doubling of characters to 256 for tweets was a very welcome change for many, but otherwise the improvements have been far more subtle. Why try fix something that isn’t broken. Editing a published tweet would be handy to correct those spelling errors that can creep in, but it doesn’t seem high on Twitter’s priorities. 

So ten years gone, here’s the the next decade worth of adventures on Twitter at https://twitter.com/richflintphoto

Picfair have followed this up with a dedicated personalised store page for its photographers. The current page design is very simple, but more options for further styling of the store’s layout are planned.
