Around this time of year you start to see a lot of “Best Of” galleries and “Year in Review” stories. I too will soon post a couple of galleries of my “Best Of” and probably post a “Year in Review” story or two. In case you haven’t noticed, I haven’t been posting as much as I had been earlier this year. It’s not that I haven’t had much to say or write about. The truth is that I have been incredibly busy with my work at the paper, freelancing and my personal life. Updating the blog was a huge priority for me when I started this and it still is. I had a ton of goals to accomplish this year and I admit that I may have fallen short of some of them as well as lost track of my blogging schedule (when is the last time I had a photo of the week anyway?). I did finally launch a personal web site earlier this year and some of what I used to post here now ends up at www.matthewjonas.com. A lot has changed for me in the last couple of months. I have a feeling that I haven’t seen the last of the changes. Looking towards next year, I have some new goals for the blog and will have another blog project that I hope will help promote the work of a lot of aspiring photojournalists. But as for this week, I am taking some much needed time off to eat, drink and play hockey. Thanks for reading and look for some “Best Of” galleries in the near future.
