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



Starting over

In case you missed my last post I am starting a new blog.

Please follow me here:

Sonya Lira’s New Blog

Now that I named the new blog  I am rethinking the name I know it is a good idea to snag your own domain name just in case and since domains are cheap I have no regrets on that. I will also keep this domain  name. I am just wondering if I should have named the new blog something else. UHHH!

I honestly hate second guessing myself about this but I do it all the time on stuff like this.

There have been 3 post on the new blog, I am in the process of setting up albums of my favorite pictures from this blog. I am going to try to be organized for a change.

Yesterday I had a BIG disaster I restarted my computer and all of a sudden Windows had deleted all my pictures in Lightroom there was not 1 picture in there and there was over 50,000. I about had a heart attack.

I literally pulled off my fake nails and made my real nails bleed underneath. Note to self this is NOT a good idea. My fingers hurt today.

Last night I finally found part of the pictures and this morning the rest of them. I started importing them back into LR again. I have no idea WHY Windows 10 did this but it really made me mad. I need to be moving pictures to my external drive tonight while I am sleeping.

I am one of those people who sends stuff to the desktop so I can find it easier. I have documents in folders, folders of pictures you name it on my desktop guess what it was all gone.Those I have not found yet and believe me I have hunted.

Nothing is every easy when I am in the middle of trying to do something like start a new blog that is when disaster strikes.



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 milestone for my blog| Sonya Lira Photography

I just received a notification from WordPress that I have posted 500 times on this blog. My how time flies by when you are having fun.

Thank you WordPress for the reminder. I hope to make many more post in the future.

Today I am thankful for WordPress for recognizing our milestones on our blogs.


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.

New Things On The Blog | Zero to Hero Challenge


The challenge was to add a new page. I added an awards page to my blog that way my awards did not have to be on the side bar. It is listed up top.

I also changed up the way my blog roll, categories and a few other things are on my side bar. It is a lot of fun tweaking our blogs there are so many great things we can do to change them up.
