2011/014: A Lesson In Patience

That’s what this (not so) little project was.
I decided to upload all the pictures from my previous years of blogging to Zenfolio, but discovered that if you combine WordPress with Zenfolio, you get painfully slow!
Uploading was easy and fairly quick, since all the files are low resolution and high compression. Then I copied the post titles and copied them as the photo titles, and waiting for each page to “activate”, and the titles to paste below the pictures was sooo slow! But, it’s all done now, and all the pictures are in one place, neatly organized by year, and easy to browse through for anyone who might be interested (beats going back hundreds of pages on the blog!). Of course many of the photos have a story attached to them, and if you would like to read them, simply enter the photo title into the search field here on the sidebar of the blog, and it will find the post for you. I will also be adding a new page to my blog, for future reference.

    Wow, you are so organized. Sadly, I lack an organizational gene. Nice to see some of your older photography.

    I remember these! so nice to walk down memory lane……do you print these? I’m so behind on printing my pics but then again, the blog looks like it will replace albums.

  4. WOW. That WAS alot of work! But what a fantastic way to easily view all your images. I looked through the first two years. Honestly, I never knew there were so many different flavors of kisses! 🙂

    You have produced a great body of work, M. You should be very, very proud!

  5. Thanks everyone 🙂
    Doreen, I print very very few of them. If I do, they tend to sit around in the envelope and wait forever to be put in photo albums. I keep meaning to make photo books (one each year) but haven’t done it yet.
    And, if I had known that you can get your blog printed, I would have used better quality pictures. These won’t print well.

  7. Cool idea. I feel like I am all over the place with my pictures: hard drive, memory card, blog, Facebook, Flickr, Snapfish, and Picasa Web Albums all have some of my photos on them.
