The Last Post: The End of the Road

Today’s Final Post by Joe Farace

on January 1, I announced via my Instagram feed—if you’re not following me there please do It’s @joefarace—that I was taking a hiatus from blogging to focus on my personal photography. That hiatus ended and while I’ve started blogging again, it’s somewhere else and with some differences.

I’m no longer Editor or contributor to the Mirrorless Photo Tips blog. After today there will be no new posts added to this blog and URL. As we move my other sites to a new host, this blog will temporarily remain on-line as an archive of four year’s worth of posts. Sometime in the near future it will disappear.

I relaunched my car photography blog with more emphasis on the world of cars and car shows as well as car photography.

I launched a new blog that’s an integral part of my website that will be adding an increased focus on mirrorless photography. To see what’s up, click this link

I’ve mentioned it before but it’s worth repeating: Mirrorless Photo Tips was a labor of love for all concerned but it did not happen by magic. It’s because of the work of many people and companies, without whose behind the scenes efforts Mirrorless Photo Tips would not exist. None of this was free. There’s costs of the domain registrar, hosting service, website security, system administration and all of these people and companies must be paid.

Since its beginnings, I’ve funded this blog out of my pocket but can no longer afford to do this. Although we had paid advertisers—thanks for supporting them—they do not contribute enough to make the blog self-supporting. Last year, we tried a fund raiser and while on a typical day the blog gets 40,000 or more visitors, only ten people contributed and we fell short of even a modest goal set to keep us afloat. And in the time since the last new post on December 29 no “angels” have come forth to rescue the blog.

And so, we have come to the end of the road. I hope you enjoy what you will find on the my new blog and many thanks for all your support over the past four years.
