I'm scratching my head trying to imagine new directions I can take this blog. After 600+ updates, my biggest problem whenever I feel I'm due (or over-due) for an update is coming up with ideas to write about.

I'm certainly not saying I've said everything there is to say about pretty girl shooting. Still, after all these updates, plus authoring an ebook, Guerrilla Glamour, it's becoming more and more difficult to come up with subjects for new posts. I certainly don't want to turn this blog into mostly a pimp site for my book, my next book, other ebooks, products, or anything else I might tout on the blog. READ MORE?
I'm not an art critic but I think I know a good picture when I see one.

Love your blog, Jimmy. I seldom comment but I love reading it. IT's one of the better photo blogs I've seen and there is a lot fo good info there. Nice to be able to comment here too, instead of the locked posts I've seen recently.

Hey jimmy, my apologies I haven't answered your message the other week, but I read it ;-) just been swamped keeping up with my own blogs and getting ready to revamp GG (we're waiting on the latest secure version of the software to launch). Yes, I do all the webmaster work on Lens Diaries myself and helped here on GG by Igor, so it's some crazy hours. In a nutshell, not enough hours in the day. But here is some advice, anytime an idea hits you, whether it's at the donut shop or the grocery store, or while watching television, write it down--called a graveyard. This helps so when you run out of ideas, you can refer back to it.

I've written about 35 posts already in 28 days for, not to mention jpgmag and other sources I write for, trying to survive in this terrible economy and I'm also gearing out of workshops to reduce my traveling and expenses, so I've got a lot of writing to do.

But will give you some advice, and at the same time tell you I don't always follow it, but if you can have "an editor" edit your work, that helps too and they come up with ideas. It's always good to have someone else, experienced, not just anyone, review your work--though they too don't do it for free. I've been fortunate that over 30 years of writing has lead me to some great editors that allow me to edit my work tightly on my own now.

I would also recommend, get you a copy of the "Associated Press Stylebook and Libel Manual," it's what's use by most newspapers around the world and magazines--it's very small, but has what you need in it so you can figure out things like "effect" vs "affect" and fiance (man or fiancee (woman), just awesome reference and cheap. I've used it for over 30 years now and carry it in my briefcase when I travel.

Well have to run, all the best, and keep writing rg sends!
