Drumroll please… A big 101 in 1001 challenge milestone

First, I’d like to say I’m opting out of this week’s WordPress photo challenge. Why, are you asking? Because the theme is a word I can’t stand hearing at my house: “mine”. At least once a day my kids argue about some toy, some book, something, anything while screaming, “it’s mine!” I wish I could ban that word. I tell them to knock it off, but another argument usually pops up the next day.

But maybe you’re disappointed not to see a photo to illustrate “mine”, so here’s one to make you happy. This is my tea mug, which I bought at the San Diego Zoo. It says “This place is a zoo!” and has lots of colorful animals on it. I drink tea out of it every morning and NOBODY else, even guests, is allowed to drink out of it. There you have it, mine.

Now let me go back to the title of this post and tell you how happy, happy, happy I am to report that I’ve completed this 101 in 1001 challenge:

51) Create a new website for my freelance writing & photography business

Alright, so technically this new website is more about my photography than my writing. I thought it was better this way, at least for now. It’s taken me a very long time to get started with the site, find the right template, go through thousands of photos to select the few I would upload. And I’m still not done. I actually have a lot more photos to add but I know I’m heading in the right direction. Almost every page has some meaningful content, so I feel confident to launch it officially today.

I present you my new photography website, where you can feel free to browse the various pages and categories, as well as subscribe if you’d like to see more as I post.

I’ll have another big announcement regarding my photos soon, but I’m still working on this project. All I can say is, I’ll have a special person to thank for letting me see the light. Sometimes you stand too close to it to actually see it.

Let me know what you think!

  1. Great website, Milka! The photos are beautiful. And I love the theme–is that a premium WordPress theme?

    Good for you for making it happen. Things gets so crazy in life, that sometimes it’s hard to bring our projects to fruition. But you did!

  2. Congrats. Love that you’re focusing a site on your photography. You are super talented. Can’t wait to hear the other news.

    Lovely website, Milka! I love photos I’ll be thete all the time. Well done, can’t wait for your news.

  4. Oh my goodness, Milka…what a talented woman you are! I love your new site and have subscribed to it so I don’t miss any of your posts! Best of luck and success. :)

  5. Yay! Excited that you’ve launched a photography website. Your photos are stellar.

  6. It looks great, Milka! Congratulations on getting your new website off the ground. It’s obvious you’ve put a lot of hard work into it. I really enjoyed seeing your calendar picks.

    • Thanks, Kristen. I’m really glad to see the way the site is taking shape. The most time consuming part is going through the tons of photos I have and pick and edit the good ones. But it feels good to see them out there one by one.

  7. Good luck with the new website, it takes a lot of initiative to get something like that going on your own!

    I agree with you about the photo challenge. It seems as though the WordPress people must be young urban single people since a lot of those weekly photo challenges don’t really fit in with those who are not in that demographic group. I wasn’t going to do the challenge this week either but I do like to turn them around to fit into what ever I what to post at the time though,… and I like the extra site views too

  8. Congrats on your new, beautiful site! I admire your ambition!

  9. I found you on the photo challenge page and am glad I did. Congratulations on your new site – very appealing! I had to laugh out loud to your reaction to the word “mine”. Been there … first with kids and now grandkids. This too shall pass!

  10. Well that’s great news! Well done!
