Looking Forward to 2023 with Search Engine Optimization
I know it isn’t quite 2023 yet, but 2022 is over as far as I’m concerned. My season pass to Eleven Mile Canyon and Manitou Lake plus a number of other cool locations is in the mail. I’m also looking forward to getting a season state park pass, which will be included in our license plate renewal fee this year. Ongoing projects will of course be photographing wildlife and uploading the images for wall art, gifts, and commercial stock and authoring my newest book, a novel called the Way of the Wolf. At the rate the book is coming along I’m sure it will be quite some time before it sees the light of day 🙁
Search Engine Optimization
I have become acutely aware of the futility in producing content that no one will ever see. I got an email from an outside firm reminding me of that fact and offering to perform Search Engine Optimization (SEO) on my site and I took it to heart. They said that my site wasn’t first on any of their searches, a fact that I have been painfully aware of and have finally decided to take action. I have upgraded my site to business status and have install the Yoast plugin for WordPress in hopes of rectifying that situation. You may notice a slight change in the style of my blogs, as it turns out Yoast doesn’t much care for my former style 🙁 Therefore, if I want effective SEO I’m going to have to adapt.
Portrait and Wedding Photography
I was hoping to retire from the photography services business, but thanks to our government’s efforts to destroy small business and retirees, I have been forced to reactivate my liability insurance through the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) club. So be sure to check out my new pages for portrait and wedding photography along with my link in the PPA website! I don’t plan on going down to the city to do any of that work, but for those wanting to do small projects and events in the mountains, I’m your man!
I hope that this is the year I finally get to visit Yellowstone National Park! It turns out that the campground I stay at in Rocky Mountain National Park will be closed for renovation this year so it looks like the usual pilgrimage there is off. I am still going to try to visit the Sand Wash Basin Horses, so if these two trips come to fruition I will be well on the way to check off two bucket list items, wild horses and wolves in my port.
It looks to be a big year, so please stay tuned to my blog. I will continue writing of my latest adventures and showing off my best images there several times a week! Be sure not to miss the latest tips and tricks and photographic advice!
Also don’t forget to check out my books and calendars on Lulu Press and Amazon including my latest, “Storm Warning” and this year’s wildlife calendar “Colorado Wildlife 2023“!
