1) Long Time, No Talk!

I can't believe it's been two months since our last newsletter. I am overjoyed with how well the site did in my absence for my wedding (which went very well, thank you for asking). A huge thanks goes out to all the mods on the site who kept everything running smoothly. I couldn't run this site without you guys! For all of the new people that have joined the site since the last newsletter (that's over 1,000 of you!), every month, around the 15th of the month, I sent out a newsletter to inform you about all the on-goings around the Corner (cool threads, new articles, contest, projects, prizes, etc). And while generally, traffic on the internet tends to slow in the summer months, traffic and activity on PhotographyCorner continues to grow and grow. August is shaping up to be our biggest month to date, on track to break record highs with new members, new threads, new posts, unique visitors, visits, pageviews, bandwidth, and pretty much every other stat that we keep track of. I'm excited for upcoming months, as we continue to grow with PhotographyCorner emerging as one of the premiere photography forums on the Internet. We're planning on adding more articles and more tutorials in the upcoming months, and eventually we'll be doing a full redesign of the site to better accommodate the tremendous growth we've been experiencing.


2) Contest Corner Challenge #15: Summer Weddings

CCC#15: Summer Weddings wasn't as popular as I had expected, but we have 7 great entries, nonetheless. Voting is currently going on right now: http://www.photographycorner.com/viewtopic.php?t=13753 Make sure you stop in before the end of the day on Thursday, August 18th to cast your vote. The winner gets $50 cash, plus a free copy of PicaJetFX. Be sure to check out the Contest Corner again in a week to see what CCC#16 may have in store!


3) Newbie Introductions

Are you fairly new to the site? Still a little overwhelmed and lost on the site, trying to figure out where things are, and where to put what photos where? There are a couple of places you should check out to get more familiar with the site.

Start off by reading, if you haven't already, the various guidelines on the site:
Forum Guidelines: http://www.photographycorner.com/viewtopic.php?t=617
Critique Corner Guidelines: http://www.photographycorner.com/viewtopic.php?t=229
Feedback Corner Guidelines: http://www.photographycorner.com/viewtopic.php?t=4526
Photos Sharing Corner Guidelines: http://www.photographycorner.com/viewtopic.php?t=4525

You'll also want to check out "Where should I post my photos?": http://www.photographycorner.com/viewtopic.php?t=5574

If you're giving or receiving "critiques" in the Critiques Corner, be sure to read "Getting the Most out of Critiques": http://www.photographycorner.com/pho...guidelines.php

And if there's something you want to learn about, check out all the resources in our Photography Resources section:

If you still are a little lost, or you still have some questions about the site, feel free to PM myself or one of the mods, or even ask in the Questions & Suggestions forum: http://www.photographycorner.com/viewforum.php?f=19

Ever wonder why there are so many views and so few posts on your threads? Well, honestly, it's not because no one likes your photos, or, at least keep telling yourself that. Seriously, though, close to 50% of the views come from "search engine spiders" that are reading the page so that the page can be listed in their search engines (like Google, Yahoo, MSN, etc). And for every registered member that views your post, there are 4-5 "guests" that are always viewing it as well (people just browsing the site, but aren't actually members of the site for some reason). Really, if you're getting 1 reply for every 30 or so views, that's about average, so try not to take it personally... it's just how the forum, and the internet, works. So if no one has replied to your thread yet, but there are a lot of views, just give it some time, and someone will reply. In the meantime, look for other threads that have 0, 1 or 2 replies, and comment on someone else's photo while you're waiting for someone to comment on yours.

6) Final Tidbits

Well, it seems like it's been a while since I wrote one of these newsletters. How was it? Am I a little rusty? Did you manage to read all the way to the end? As always, feel free to give me feedback on the newsletters in the Photography Newsletters Forum: http://www.photographycorner.com/viewforum.php?f=30 I can't believe that August is half over already... that means that summer is almost over and fall is just around the Corner. I'm looking forward to seeing the best photos you've got from your summer vacations. And hey, if you're bored and looking for something to do, you could always write an article or tutorial for the resources section of the site and get yourself a shiny "Contributor" medal for your profile. If you're not comfortable writing articles for the site, but still want to help out, feel free to email or PM me, and I can give you some work to do. Oh, and since you're still reading, if you have a website, why not send a link towards PhotographyCorner on your site! Tell your friends and anyone that visits your site that you're a proud member of PhotographyCorner.com! If you have a photography-related site, I can even link back to your site from our Photography Directory ( http://www.photographycorner.com/pho...y-sponsors.php ). And hey, if you've got nothing better to do, go to your local zoo and takes some photos for me. I may even use them on my upcoming project: www.ZooSeek.com

Anyways, this is getting long. Thanks for reading and being a part of our site here @ PhotographyCorner.com. Enjoy the rest of your summer, take lots of photos, and, when you have a chance, come back to the Corner to share some of them.



See you around the Corner,
Tim L. Walker
