:o) Hey ladies and gents! How have y'all been? I've missed you all, although unseen I've never been "gone".
So lurking is fun, not. So I decided to say "Hi" and see what you all have been up to.
It's been a crazy year here. Some of you know but most do not, that my website was hacked (hard core) about a week about Valentines in February. Scary thing is, I didn't catch this random redirect script until mid to late March. The worst part of this wasn't the hack (or the attempted rehacks). It was being black listed my Google, listed as a malicious site and booted from the 3rd most top result on page one to page 6.
I live and apparently die by Google, as my main search source for business. So 2012 is dead.
Instead of 20 weddings, I've got 2. On top of that, I had the joy of going through a business sales and use tax audit as well. Thank you State of Missouri. :o\
So a lot has been learned, relearned, beaten into me by now. It's been very rough on my family as this is my only source of income and not much hope on the horizon. Most of you know that I'm a Christian man, so this has definitely grown my faith and we've been provided for many many times over in the last minutes and hours. Nothing more humbling than standing in line at food banks so your kids can eat something.
My current focus is in hanging onto my meager equipment I havn't had to liquidate for bills and book anything and everything that comes my way for 2013. Beyond that I will be concentrating on my brand new editing service, ShootEditLove.com (website is about to launch!). If you want to contact me, go through Facebook for now. http://facebook.com/shooteditlove Dirt cheap, rock solid edits. You shoot, we edit, your clients will love!
I'm already blessed by some FM'ers as current clients and would love to serve more of you if you ever need me. Everyone take care, I'll try to remember to post up photos from the wedding I have in September. :o)
