I’m getting my head around my Social Profile

I’m seriously starting with the whole social media and blog thing again as I think it will benefit , well hoping it will benefit, with photography sales and affiliation from the products I use. Deciding on how to do it as i’m totally out of my depth is another thing. I have watched webinars, they hook you with the ‘free’ webinar on how to make money from … then hit you for $497 reduced to $97 for the next 2 hours. COME ON, this is how they make their money.

It makes sense to syndicate your social media accounts, use Hootsuite or one of the others, set a page up in a file on your computer for blog posts as they come to you then put them on Hootsuite and post them religiously every day. It cant be THAT hard can it? I’m giving it a go hoping its as easy as other people make it look, wish me Luck!

Duke of Lancaster graffiti art ship

Chris and I went for a wander a couple of weeks ago, we try to get one day a week where we just take off in the car and head wherever the pointer lands on the map. This time it landed on Wales, Talacre to be exact! Now this has become a bit of an in joke between us as Chris did ask me if i wanted to go to Talacre for our honeymoon 18 years ago. Silly me thought it was in Spain! When it is 5.5 miles as the crow flies from our home. 🙂 Well we didnt go then but have been since. This day was beautiful, one of those rare winter days of deep blue sky, warm sun and no need for a coat, perfect. We drove over the Shotton bridge,  i am going back to photograph it, and meandered down to Mostyn. We had lunch at a little cafe and wandered over to see the old ship that is docked there. The Duke of Lancaster (http://www.dukeoflancaster.net/ ) was a night club at one point but now it is an art gallery for some truly amazing graffiti art. There are several artists using her as a canvas at the moment Kiwi a Latvian (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzlRCGzGNu8) and a group calling themselves Dudug (http://www.dudug.co.uk) have also added their work. It all makes for some great photography, the ship is beautiful in all of her rust and art and really deserves a visit. If you want to take photos though it has to be from the path as Dudug have a ‘thing’ and if they find you have photographed their art and put it up on any websites for sale they do prosecute.
