Happy Birthday g-rad
I'm very happy to see g-rad turn one year old.
It is a great community and I am honored to be a part of it. With that said I have been a notorious slacker and in this new year I hope to put forth much more effort into blogging, commenting and attending g-rad events. For about a month I was considering leaving the g-rad community. I no longer live in GR and I felt distant and irrelevant. I also had a constant ball of guilt in my stomach for never posting. However I put a lot of thought into it and I still feel a great connection to Grand Rapids and it's g-rad members. Even though I may be residing outside of GR I'd like to step up my game and become more active in the community. Kyle and I hope to attend upcoming g-rad events and I will post more online. Being a g-rad blogger is quite coveted and a real honor and it is about time I acknowledge that. I have reworked the design of my blog and will continue to tweak it. With my new formatting I am also expanding my traditional photo blog to include writing, articles, interviews and art. I hope my new found commitment will inspire others like me who have been posting infrequently and rarely commenting. I understand that each of us needs to do our part to keep the community active and interesting.
It's a new year and a new leaf for all of us. Happy Birthday g-rad!

Thanks, I do enjoy my own banner I must say. It's more fun to post now that my blog looks better. It use to be embarrassing to put any written content into it bacause it was poorly formatted. If I can only work on resizing the archives now....what fun...not.
