Analogue blogging

I did a long overdue clean-up with our kids this morning and found these old Moleskine journals from about a decade ago. I used these journals to capture thoughts, ideas and life drama.

I want to capture these pages and I’m just debating how to do that. A flat-bed scanner is probably the way to go, short of disassembling the books and running pages through my ScanSnap scanner.

Where to share photos

My Flickr subscription comes up for renewal this December and while I am inclined to renew my subscription and see what Flickr does under Yahoo’s new leadership, I’m curious which of the photo sharing services available now are the better ones?​

I’ve considered 500px and while I get some pretty immediate feedback on photos I upload, a lot of that feedback is spam with requests to follow other users. I like the attention but not like that.​

I ​upload all my photos to Google Photos for storage and to share on Google+ (I also backup with Dropbox and manually to S3) so its not like I need Flickr to show all my photos or even share them all but I have been with Flickr for years. Of course I can share my photos here on Squarespace which is designed, at least in part, for photographers. I can easily do more private sharing through Dropbox and Google+ too.

Renewing my Flickr membership wouldn’t be a bad thing for me but, like I said, I’m curious about the other options.
