Welcome to ver. 3.0 of my blog, the blog formerly known as VIEW.
Now I’m simply calling it “the blog.” You can call it “the blog”, “your blog”, or “Lane’s blog.” I’ll probably refer to it as “my blog.” It still is a photographic journal by Lane Hickenbottom.
When I started this thing 6 1/2 years ago (before blogging was mainstream) I had no idea what my life would be like in the summer of 2008. And if somebody told me I’d have a wife and kids and would be a wedding photographer, a) I wouldn’t believe it. b) I wouldn’t believe how much fun it would all be.
As the times have changed, so has this blog.
I’ve always tried to have my blog pleasing to the eye, easy to navigate, and filled with interesting content. Hopefully nothing is changing there. I was having some technical problems with my older blogging software. It was a great little program that was the dream-child of one gracious woman. However, there is very little support for it, so I decided to go with a WordPress blog.
I hope you like the new features. Among them is a search function in the upper-left-hand corner that works quite nice when your sifting through 6+ years of content. Also you’ll find improved archives, and hopefully more successful RSS/XML feeds.
I still need to manually (ugh!) change dates and photo addresses on most of my old posts, so if you are browsing around, you’ll see that things are still under construction.
I hope you like the changes.
