Journal

Yet another thank you

I know that there are some people who get a bit frustrated with everyone posting journal entries everytime they sell something but I’m afraid here is another one.

A little while ago someone bought a canvas print of one my photos. I can’t tell you how happy that made me. I’d love to thank him/her personally but I don’t know who it was. I’d love to know how it turned out and whether they were happy with it.

Many thanks to the mystery shopper and many thanks to the RB community as a whole.

Back up, back up, BACK UP!!!

Read it, learn it, repeat it like a mantra.…

I used to host my personal site on some servers that a friend and I used to own. Recently things have started to change and he has decided to close the servers down. No worries, I have other space I’ll just transfer.
This friend of mine told me that I had 3 days to get the info off and downloaded. Again, no worries, loads of time.

So I log onto the server thinking I’ve got 2 days left and BANG….nothing. No photos, no html, no php, no database. NOTHING. My friend got it wrong and they close as soon as you ask – no weeks grace.
A bit annoying, but again, no worries, I’ve got multiple back ups!!!!

No. No I don’t. I’m that stupid that I thought “ah well, the hosting company will back up all 500 photographs and code, so I don’t need to clog up

Inarticulate thank you's

This is all very strange to me – I’ve never blogged in my life (I know, I’ve been hiding under a rock :) ).
But my first post is a thank you to those who have bought some cards of mine. Many thanks. I really am very honoured.

It’s a strange feeling when it happens. Suddenly there is someone else in the world who likes what you’ve done, likes it enough to buy it. I can’t really express this as articulately as I’d like but it’s just a very weird thing. This site is awesome – the ability to hook up with like minded individuals is cool as, but the bonus of buying and selling artwork is just amazing.

Now that I’ve slowly become addicted to RB I’m going to have to hone my writing and blogging skills.
