Instead of deleting this blog I think I will keep it but I am trying to decide now how to keep both blogs without them being mirror image blogs.

My domain name on this one is Sonya Lira Photography but I could name the blog itself something else without actually changing the domain. Although I could change the domain.

Should this one strictly be everything about photography including tutorials and how-tos?

The other one can be some photography,  DIY, some just general post etc? I could move the DIYs from this blog to that blog.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I need help lol..

Thank You



WordPress storage space and upgrades

I am using 72% of the storage space that WordPress allows us on the free blogs.

We are allowed 3,072 MB and I am using 2,196.60 MB.

For $5.99 a month I can get 3 GB of space this one has the remove ads option and it has basic design customization.

For $8.25 a month I can get 13 GB of space. This one has advanced design customization and the remove ads option.

I really see no need in getting the one for $24.92 a month.

If you ran out of space and upgraded which choice did you make and why?

Are you happy with your choice?

When I was running two blogs this probably would not have happened for a long time but it was harder on me trying to keep up with two blogs. This blog will be 3 years old in January.

Slow start

I am off to a very slow start this year on blogging I will try and do better over the next week.

If you happen to get another notice of me following your blog even though I was already following your blog it is because I have two emails I use. One is for the blog I closed down and this blog’s has another one.

Basically, I logged in using the wrong id went into the stats to check followers and screwed up and started following you all again. Then I realized what I had done and quit.

If I delete that login or email addy just know I am still following you with this one.


A breath of fresh air

When I started this blog it was for my photography. It has become so much more than that for me.

Along the way, it became a place that I could say what was on my mind or in my heart. As the words spill out onto the screen it is like a breath of fresh air. This blog became my outlet in more ways than one.

The blogging world is like this big group of people wanting their voice to be heard for many different reasons.

I am thankful for my blog and the many wonderful people I have gotten to know along the way. I look forward to your post, pictures, drawings and the many words you say each  and every day.

Connections | #1000Voices

We all have connections with family, friends, and fellow bloggers.

Social media has allowed us to make friends with people who have the same interest as we do. I have met many bloggers, photographers as well as many Marine moms. I have also met people who are compassionate towards animals such as I am. Without social media and my blog, these connections would not be possible.

How much effort we put into those connections is up to us. I think everyone needs to make an effort to connect to others.There is always someone new to connect to and you might find out you have a lot more in common than you thought. Take the time to comment on a blog post it could make a huge difference for someone.

I think often times families lose their connections due to the distance that separates them. Sometimes no matter how hard you try you can never get back that connection. When you move away from home it is up to you to keep that connection with your parents after all you’re the one that moved not them.

My parents, use to travel over 300 miles to visit their parents in Louisiana when we moved to Texas. They wanted us to keep that relationship with our grandparents so they made sure to take us back about every 3 months. During the summer, we would spend anywhere from a few weeks to a month with our grandparents.They did not want us to lose that connection and we never did.

A grandparent’s relationship is very special one with their grandchildren and the parents are in control of making this effort, not the children. Take the time to make this happen and remember both sides of the family matter, not just one.

Sometimes no matter how hard you try you can never get back that connection it seems to be lost. It is easier to connect with friends and fellow bloggers than it is family.
