TAXONOMIES

So I am having fun writing stuff about stuff and it seems proper to add more categories to the site. If you ever noticed, there are category links at the bottom of every post. I think I will start to add related post links to each article as well.

Anyways, I don’t like to have lots of navigation in the menu bar at the top of the site so I made the archives page also the navigation page. Have a look. This is a work in progress.

Is it trippy digging through the archives.

POSTED

I don’t mind posting photos here every day. A friend of mine was like, “Why not just use insta and link it to the online store and that’s it?” I said, “What if something else comes out and all the instas are deleted just like myspace, tumblr, flickr, etc.?” This site has out lived all the other social medias so far, so why not keep it going. We started this site in 2003. We switched from Movable Type to WordPress in 2006 and didn’t know any better, so we can only go back to 2006. I like that this content right here is our property and not property of Zuckerberg you know what I’m sayin.

IDENTITY THEFT

This week marks the second time this year someone has used my bank account in another country. This time it’s in France. Some one galavanting in multiple Ubers, sponsored by me. The first time was in March. Jamaica. Not joking, someone was buying phone cards lots of them. Getting the money back is one thing, but you’ll never get that time back. Time spent filling out claims, calling multiple banks, and uber etc. C’est la vie.

FLOGIN

Forum Login = Flogin. Get it? We have been having spammy problems so I had to disable the register and login links on the front page of the forums until I fixed it. It is relatively easy for the page to break but it is all fixed now.

RETINAS

Not sure if any of you noticed, but I always noticed that on mobile screens our site looked “fuzzy”. Images weren’t as sharp as they should be. I knew it was because this site, which runs on WordPress, was trying to optimize images for all screens and just pure failing and that there was nothing I could do about it. But upon further research I found out that this theme we are using is also optimizing images AND the uploader we are using is optimizing images. Everybody trying to optimize images when they don’t even need optimizing since I do that when prepping in Photoshop. Anyways, I unplugged a bunch of plugins and it seems like everything is as sharp as it is supposed to be on all screens starting today. Don’t look at the old stuff. Just look at today and going forward and we should all be super sharp. Ok thanks.

REGULAR

Photo by Bouwe Brouwer

I just read that 80% of your website traffic is brand new, like they never seen your site before. Maybe that is referring to websites with no new regular content and no audience because 80% seems very high? But I do agree that a good chunk of you who are reading this have never heard of us before. I know because questions show up in my emails. So today, I’ll answer the main question right now. All the photos on this blog and on our Instagram feed are photos from past issues of Hamburger Eyes, so if you would like to submit then you should submit to our magazine. It is very easy. Just email us a link.

BUBBLES

I was thinking of possible Youtube series’s for the Hamburger Eyes channel and came across all the new Nikon and Canon mirrorless videos while researching camera and photography channels. Ok no one even owns these cameras yet because they just announced them and they aren’t shipping these cameras for months. But, all these people are making videos of their reactions to this particular news. Basically they are reviewing cameras that aren’t even out yet. I guess it is not that crazy but wow you can do anything on Youtube.

Seems like the big photo channels are camera reviews and how-to’s, or at least that’s what the algorithm is feeding me in my research. I think we could make something different and cool. What do you think?
