Hey all,

I just wanted to let all of my WG family know that I have recently been made Portland, Oregon's Photography Examiner (external link) from the folks over at Examiner.com (external link).

What is an Examiner you say?

They are a person that (through an application process) has been determined to be an expert in their field in their local geographical area. As such, I have been asked to write for them about said field: photography. Basically, I'm am an article writer for a national online newspaper.

The cool thing I see about writing for them is: I get to write about whatever I want, as long as it relates to photography. I find I work better when not burdened by restrictions :D . In addition to that, anyone can read my stuff, not just those in my local area. Sweet!

As of this week, I have written three articles and am getting a fair amount of views, I guess, but would love it if my POTN fam would read my articles as well. You can post comments on them and, ideally, subscribe (external link) to my area to be informed each time I post something new. (that SUBSCRIBE link may not work, so it would be better to just click on the one next to the image of me at my examiner area :D)

What I would like from you folks is this:

Aside from subscribing to my area, I would love suggestions for upcoming articles. You can just put them in this thread. That way I know what it is that people want to read about. It helps me and you. I get to write and you get your questions answered, as it were.

If you are wondering, I do get paid for this, but only on a 'read' basis. That is: I (think) it is based off of each articles view read per IP address, per day. That means refreshing an article 100 times will still only count as 1 read because they came from the same computer. A friend tried that, and all it did was drive the count up but not the read count.

Here is where to find my area: Beau's Examiner Profile: Where to read and subscribe (external link).

Once again, I want to thank you all ... and I look forward to your suggestions.
