How can it possibly be twelve years since I began my blogging journey as of today, June 24!?
1172 published post presentations. I must say that in the beginning I had no clue how to upload images, place them, or even write up summaries. As I went along and made friends from around the globe, and with that I learned new techniques, learned about ways to improve my entries. Learning about what a meme was and how to utilize them was a huge success for me. In all 12.2k (12,414 to be exact ;) comments have been monitored and published. There was a time when thousands of those comments went missing and oh what lessons were learned about what can happen from behind the scenes and I knew that I did not want to be on the bad end of that scenario. My following is at 241 regulars as well as my Facebook followers who tap in using my Photography by Mary Howell Cromer page which connects right to my blog.
For this very special presentation I am going to post 112 images/mosaic mix. I have waited for 3 long seasons for the Bald Eagles near us to have a season not fraught with utter sadness, disaster and loss This blog is named after the beautiful Red-shouldered Hawks, and yet they too have had 3 very bad seasons, including this one that ended suddenly this past Monday. I had hoped to be able to share wonderful images of lovely eyas and yet we have nothing yet to share once again for them.
