Yesterday whilst getting getting a lift from my sister
and recounting tales of the recent wedding that I
photographed and she commented that she was
happy that I was still keeping one foot in the photography
side of things. And that got me thinking. Photography
is pretty much all I know to do at times. It is my main
skill and what most [if not all] people associate me with.
For me to live my life and not be doing something photographic is
strange to me.
It’s just not going to happen.
And in a couple of weeks [or next week, I’ll check my diary] I’m
photographing my old photogrpahy tutor’s stepson’s wedding.
Now to add a little history, my old photography has kept in
contact with me even though college was years ago and gives
my weddings to photograph and work in general and has said,
and I quote
“This is Richard, one of my old students. And he takes
photographs better than I do”
Which to hear from your old tutor is pretty amazing. As you
probably know I have been doing photography since about
the age of Seven. But it was at college that I started to
pursue it. And Mike is a big part of that. Now I’m known as
‘Photo’ by many and like I said before alot of people know me
by photography. Doing anything else would be strange.
Oh and on that point I am going to be working on a
website soon for my photography. And maybe other
aspects of my creative life, like for instance my writing
and so on.
And one more point, and this is mainly for Savannah
[yourownpersonalmonster], I’ve decided to make that
book up and when it’s done I’ll put a link up. Gonna have
to make some new material up for it though.

Today was quiz day, whoop, and I actually enjoy it
quite a bit. But today after my first drink of cider
and black a random wave came over me and mission
was to get drunk. I mean quite drunk.
I’m quite drunk at the moment being that it’s the
end of the night and I have consumed at least six
shots of sambuca and also two and a half pints of
cider and black.
I’m actually drunk whilst writing this post and whilst
I am not so so drunk that I can’t use the keyboard
properly. I am drunk enough to know that my behavior
due to this ‘wave’ wasn’t normal. For one I was doing most
of the drinking at the bar and I also sat away from the group
which is unlike me, ah well, it’ll pass before the morning
comes. And now to reply to monster’s comment.

The first post was placed on this site on the 2nd of
August 2008. So I’m a little late but I only realised
today. So yeah, a whole year. I’m probably as
surprised as you. Because I usually abandon stuff
like this a long time ago.
For the next few days [Saturday, Sunday, and Monday]
I’m going to be in Dublin in Ireland. Should be fun. So
I’ve placed a wordpress style wrap-up but for the entire
year. Using stats and the like. Enjoy
Here are the stats for the 2nd August 2008 to the 7th August 2009 stats:
- 2 blogs were created.
- 161 posts were published.
- 270 comments. Alot of this is due to yourownpersonalmonster [click the link].
- 7,780 pageviews on squarebrackets.wordpress.com.
- The most amount of views in a month occurred in May 2009 with 839 views. With July 2009 coming a close second with 834 views.
- In 2008 this blog received 2,830 views and so far in 2009 it has received 4,950 views.
- The average view per day in 2008 was 19.
- The average view per day so far in 2009 is 23.
- 15 Categories.
- 4 Pages.
- 25 Drafts [alot of these are rubbish and will never see the light of day].
- The most popular search term to reach this blog is ‘Polaroid’ which is responsible for 1,019 views.
- The most viewed page or post is the ‘[about me’ page which has received 324 views.
- And the biggest referrer to this blog is the WordPress Dashboard.
And there you go. A whole year of views and comments reduced
to numbers. That isn’t to say I haven’t appreciated all your
comments for I have recieced for I have. And I love the fact that
people actually reead all the random things that I have to say.
As you saw on that list of statistics I have created two blogs.
The other blog is realatively quite new with only one post on
it at the moment [although it has about ten drafts, all of
which will be made into posts]. It was made for the express
purpose of display my photography. the link is below:
Lets hope that I keep that one up [and this one] for another year.
Thanks, and keep reading!
I still don’t believe that I’ve had this and kept it active for
