My new blog and photo site is live at barbhoganphoto.com. I hope you'll come on over and decided to stay there!
Neglect, that's certainly what this blog has been suffering from, that's for sure. I don't really know why I stopped updating it. Well, yes I do and that's the good part.
I stopped because I've thought for a long time that I need to change my focus and morph this forum into a better blog that's more photography oriented and better suited to what I'm doing right now. My photography business has really picked up, and thanks to the encouragement of a bunch of friends and some talented creative professionals, I'm ready to make that leap.
So it's my pleasure to announce that in early June, I will be leaving this blog behind and moving to a new site that will serve as both my photography blog and online portfolio. I've been working on it behind the scenes for a few weeks now and I'm really liking how it's looking so far.
In other big news, I started a new job at AI Software in March, as their project manager and social media specialist. We build websites for other businesses and provide social media management. I train clients on how to maintain their websites, do site changes and population, and do all the social media campaigns. It's such a fun job. I tell people that I get paid to play on Facebook all day. That's not entirely true, but it kind of is to a degree.
So since I'm now an official Social Media Maven, I figure that I should get my own act together in that respect and starting this week, I'm doing that. If you're not already following me on Twitter (and why would you since I rarely update it!), you can find me here and I promise to keep it updated and hopefully fun.
Lots has been going on around these parts since I quit posting and when I roll out my new blog, I hope you'll follow me there and catch up on all the latest and greatest!
Finally, since no blog entry is complete without a photo, I think I'll post this one. I recently got an iPhone and have been trying to learn how to take creative pics with it using Instagram. Here is one from Mirror Lake at Eden Park.
Speaking of Instagram, if you'd like to follow my fumbling efforts and failures over there regarding my iPhone camera, you can find me on Instagram at bahogan.
See you soon with exciting new updates!
A friend sent me this the other day and I thought it was hilarious! Make sure to check out the names of his "friends" and read the comments. Clever! I challenge you to not laugh!

I was crusing a Mac Users forum the other day, and fond this software that can help you regain some of your hard drive space.
When I was pregnant with Shannon, AOL was all the rage. One day I clicked on the message board forum and found a group of women who were all due at the same time I was. It was way cool. That's where I met Maggie, who I consider my first internet friend, who ended up becoming a dear friend for life. From there, I found another group of feisty women on a debate board and we all became internet buddies, including my friend Marla.
We retired our old television and stepped up into the world of high definition television on Black Friday of 2007. It's a sleek, lovely piece of high technology, and it fits just perfectly in it's assigned space.
