I just paid my subscription. What do I do next? re-explore the site to see how different it is for a paid subscriber. I see that I have a blog and a gallery. Cool! Now, what do I use the blog for? How about a place to publish my progress on keeping up with digital shooters.
I've found that the primary use for digital photography is filling up hard drives with photos that will never be printed or even viewed ever again. That's a little like the boxes of negatives that most of us have
