The Future of the EdinPhoto Web Site

I've been considering the future of the Edinphoto web site for a while now.  Here are the conclusions that I came to recently.

1. The EdinPhoto web site will remain available on the Internet for searching and viewing its existing content.

There were 27,300 pages and 26,300 pictures. when I last counted them in Jan 2017.

2.  From Jun 2017 onwards, I'll be makingmake updates to the web site less frequently.

Please see this EdinPhoto page for my reasons behind this decision.

 3.  I should now have more time to respond to my backlog of emails to be answered.  I hope to be able to answer all my outstanding emails by about 31 July 2017.

Backlog of emails

It has taken me a long time to catch up on my back log of emails to answer, but I'm catching up at last, following my recent decision about future updates to the EdinPhoto site.

-  In Aug 2013, my backlog of emails was 502.
-  In Aug 2014, it was
617
-  In Aug 2015, it was
697
-  In Aug 2016, it was
741
-  On 12 Jun 2017 (when I considered the future of EdinPhoto) it was
620.
-  By 30 Jun 2017, it had reduced to
322.
-  Today, 31 Jul 2017, I now have
154 emails to reply to.

I apologise for the delay to all who have been waiting a long time for a reply.   I'm now hoping to eliminate my backlog of outstanding emails during Aug 2017.

 

Thank you to all for your contributions and correspondence over the years since I set up the EdinPhoto site in 2001 and for all your encouraging responses that I have received following my recent decisions about the future of the EdinPhoto web site.

Instagram + Twitter

It's a while since I last added many of my own photos to the EdinPhoto web site. (It can be quite time-consuming for me to add them to the site.)

Instead, I've been adding my photos to Instagram Instagram Logo  and Twitter Twitter Logo .

If you'd like to view some of these photos, I recommend  going to  Instagram.
