That I have not posted here in over a month.
For which I apologize, more or less.
However. I can explain.
SmugMug, which has been hosting the extended galleries behind the blog here, has raised their hosting fee far beyond what I’m willing to absorb, given that this blog and those galleries are a non-paying proposition.
Therefore I’ve spent much of my spare bloggery time working on the back end here, so that those galleries will stay accessible when my prepayment with SmugMug runs out. (The new address for the gallery main page is http://rcmckee.com/Galleries. )
Just to be clear, because they’re good folk with a legitimate business to run… I have no personal issues with the service or the people at SmugMug; if anyone’s looking for hosting for event photography or other e-store retail/print sales, they’re great – and with the price increase they’re still among the most reasonable places out there. It’s just that I make no money from this blog or the galleries, and in case anyone’s missed it the newspaper business is, in technical terminology, circling the drain.
That being the case it’s important to reduce all nonessential expenses – and hosting with SmugMug because I’m too damn lazy to set up and learn the gallery software that comes FREE with my rcmckee.com webhosting is about as nonessential as it gets.
Also just to be clear, I still work with the same labs they use; if you decide you have to have a copy of anything I post here, please feel free to contact me directly and we can set that up.
Anyway if my absence has been noted, that’s why.
Rumors of my demise, untimely or otherwise, are mistaken, as far as I know. Could be wrong about that any time now, though.
So that’s it. There will be more photos…
And, because this is the InterToobs…
Have a cat.
