Happy New Year to our Pet Parade friends, it’s good to see you. I look forward to enjoying a lot more photography journeys and discoveries in 2020.
I want to start by updating you on the cat photo blog posts for the final month of last year. December is snowy in the Northern hemisphere, and summer is arriving in the Southern hemisphere so enjoy a relaxing read!
Harvey’s photos are popular on Facebook and every time I post a picture the ‘likes’ skyrocket! Not bad for a cat now living out his days in the summer sun with good food and love.
Our first photo post last month showcased senior cat, Harvey. He is a little frail and this prompted me to create a portrait filled with affection for our favourite senior cat.
This graphic (not in the post) was created by talented Twitter friend @RealFakeGator for 2019’s Halloween pawty. Doesn’t Harvey look awesome?
This post is a revised version of a post from earlier in 2019. The photographs and text have both been revised with more tips and information on a favourite topic of mine – cats jumping and leaping.
Here you can see Connor from Neko Ngeru Cat Adoption Cafe in full acrobatic mode playing with a wand toy.
December saw an explosion of ‘gift guides’ online to encourage people to spend their money and maybe make bloggers a little bit of money along the way with affiliate links.
I was not going to post a photo gift guide but, while I was thinking about what my next steps in photography would be, I started wondering about the kind of basic equipment aspiring photographers, just like me, might find useful as our skills develop and grow.
I aimed at useful budget items to help us all take positive steps in 2020 without robbing a bank. Check them out in the post.
Affiliate Links Note
Affiliate programs can be a good way to monetise your blog but should be entered into with consideration and thought for your own web presence.
The last Thursday in December allowed us to celebrate our friendship with Brian’s blog and also display a selection of our favourite cat photos taken during 2019, as part of Brian’s weekly hop on Thursdays.
I learned a lot just by looking back at the year’s photos and, like every photographer, I was glad to be reminded of the good pictures I had taken. What surprised me was that there are more than I realised. I know you will find the same when you go back and look through your images.
Check out the pictures I really liked this past year in this post. Here’s my first ever photograph in print. Cool huh?
Happy New Year, and thank you for being part of the Pet Parade in 2020
