Wow! I can’t believe I started this blog 10 years ago this past January. I actually started blogging April of 2006, but I didn’t start here at stevecreek.com until January of 2007. Back then I wanted a way to show my family and friends why I loved being outdoors all the time. After awhile I noticed other people that I didn’t know were finding this blog and were enjoying my photos and adventures.
I have enjoyed sharing my adventures in the outdoors with everyone over the years. I will have to admit that I have come close to shutting this blog down a few times. Mainly because I would rather be outdoors than at my computer. I know if I ever stopped blogging that I would miss it. I have met a lot of people over the years through this blog and consider them friends.
I have had lots of my photos published and I have even sold a few over the years and I would say that over 95% of them were found through this blog. My advice to photographers that want to get photos published would be to start a blog. I have read and believe that blogs tend to get more customers compared to those who just have a basic website. Photography blogs are cheap and definitely represent low cost marketing.
I also want to thank all the people who have become regular visitors to Steve Creek Outdoors. Like I wrote in my Biography:
Through my photos, it is my hope that you find the same passion and admiration for the wild as I enjoy each day throughout my nature walks. There truly are not enough hours in the day to capture all the beauty that nature and wildlife has to offer.
