I have not made any blog posts in over a year!  I really want to do this, and am going to commit time to doing it on a regular basis.  I’m going to do some catching up and then I’ll do my best to keep things current.  I’ve been educating myself about the value and relevancy of social media and have recently created a Facebook Fan page (http://www.facebook.com/GM.Photography.Olympia), created a Twitter account (http://twitter.com/#!/GregMennegar), given my website a complete overhaul.  I think there are a lot of benefits for both me and the people I want to network with.  The internet provides the opportunity to dramatically expand my circle of influence as well as having the opportunity to network with like minded friends that I may never have the opportunity to meet in person.  I do a lot of volunteering in my local photography community, but I also want to be able to share what I know with anyone, anywhere.
