Welcome To 2023

Welcome to the first post of 2023 for this blog, I would love to hear from you about what you would like to see here this year. Fewer posts, more posts, more content in the form of writing, and fewer photos? Please let me know. These nine photos are from last year and all the way back to 2015, looking back on the history of Las Vegas Photoblog. Happy New Year to my friends!

    • Thanks again, Belinda! Those mountains are one of the main reasons I stayed here in 2016 after the divorce. The climate and landscape are so different from my Michigan home. The huge storm system that has been pounding the Pacific Northwest for some time has also been giving us a lot of overcast and plenty of rain last night. I’m sure it will eventually move out of town and give us our beautiful blue sky back.

    • Thank you so much, Anne Marie! I will continue posting in 2023 for sure. I show the areas of this city that those tourists will likely never see which is where we locals live.

      I haven’t visited the Strip in a long time which is kind of a shame but I just don’t feel safe there and parking can be hell! The big venues used to let the locals park free but that ended a couple of years ago.

      Now, just how greedy is that? They have millions yet won’t us park at no cost. Guess what? I will spend my money elsewhere!

  1. Hi John, Happy New Year! I enjoy all of your photos. It’s easier for me to review them via Instagram on a more frequent basis. For blogging, it’s only once a week as you can tell. I enjoy seeing the places in Vegas since I’ll likely never make it there. You always frame things so well, so I learn from your composition. I agree with all the comments – it’s your blog, do what you enjoy doing and it shines through!

  2. Wonderful! Happy New Year full of love peace and joy dear friend! πŸ€—πŸ₯°πŸŽŠπŸΎπŸ₯‚πŸ’•πŸ’žπŸŒŸπŸ’•πŸ’•

    • Thank you, Derrick! You aren’t the only person to mention that one post per day would be better, I have thought about doing just that but obviously have not. I limit them to 5 per day but it used to be basically unlimited which was never a good idea. I suppose that two or three per day would be better for my viewers/readers. Thanks for your comment, Derrick!

    • Thank you, Cindy, and to you and yours too. I sincerely appreciate your stopping by so often, thank you!!!! ❀️☺️

  3. The photos are always beautiful, John! One daily post would be easier to keep up with, but you should do what feels comfortable to you, what fits your likes and personal schedule. I’ll visit as often as I can.

    • Thanks very much, Lavinia! My schedule used to be an unlimited number of posts per day, but I stopped that at least a year ago. It was a photo overload. For some time now, the daily number has been at five per day, rarely six. I am sure there are more than one (you) out there that prefer one or two per day but I just put out a lot of content. I have the time. i recently considered just one per day for two good reasons and may switch to that this year.

    • Hi, Clay, thank you for your comment! Five posts per day is the limit right now but it was once much higher. There are well over 7000 posts on this site. Can it be called a blog with that much content? Thanks for your visiting when you can, happy new year!

  4. Happy New Year. Let your posts be what you want them to be. They are a reflection of you. May your new year be full of enjoyment and exploring the new and revisiting the familiar.

Your pleasant comment is welcome!
