After 3 months of blogging on WordPress.com, I had already taken up 50% of my allotted space. The reason: Lots of big photos. It was time for Florida Illustrated to find a new web host.
Selecting a web host is a lot like shopping for a new home. This makes sense because a web host is a home for your web site, just as a house is a home for you and your family.
First-time home buyers are often young couples. As they look at new homes, they think of how many kids they will have and how many rooms they will need. As I shopped for a new web host, I had to consider how many photos I would be taking in the future. The more photos, the more room I would need. In the end, I opted for a home that I could add to over the years, making room for all my upcoming photography projects.
Sometimes, when you move into a new home, you may decide that you want a swimming pool or that you don’t like the kitchen. This is where plugins, widgets, and customization comes in.
What does all this technobabble mean for you, my dear readers? Florida Illustrated is about to get a lot bigger and a lot better. In celebration, I am sharing a select few photos from my private collection of outtakes and orphan photos. These are the photos that didn’t make it onto Florida Illustrated because of space constraints.
