I made it a year!

Well, I guess I can say I made it. It’s been one full year since the first post on my blog. In celebration of this accomplishment, I am having a photo giveaway. More about it at the end of the post.

So what have I accomplished through this blog? It hasn’t gone too far yet, but over a year I have had 60 posts with a total of 129 comments. The site as a whole has had 2,453 visits from 2,102 unique visitors across a slew of countries.
Stats from Google analytics

Here is an overlay of the world. All of the green countries are places where people have visited my site from. I put up some numbers on a few (including the top ten plus more) just to give an idea.

Stats from Google analytics
Here is a list of some of the favorite things I’ve posted across the year:
Prisoner Graphic Novel
My free seamless textures are ever popular
Aperture in Photography part 1 and part 2 (I plan to do more like this in the future)
Design for the fantasy realm – ebook cover and map illustration
All of the critiques have been fun and hopefully informative. Click here if you’d like to submit for critique!
Who is your client?
The Featured Artists spots – it’s been a real pleasure interviewing some of the other professionals out there to get a different insight. If there is someone you think I should feature, send me a message.

The Giveaway

print example
In celebration of being on the web for a year without fading away (and I don’t plan on doing that any time soon), I am giving one reader the opportunity to win one 8in x 10in print of their choice of photo, illustration, or painting of mine. Any image that has the “Click here to order a print” button under it in the full view is eligible. The print will be in my standard format of having the title with my name and web address in a small black bar under the image. I will ship the winning print anywhere in the world. This is a $40(+S&H) value. If you don’t want to enter, but still order a fine art print, just head over to my order page. (and see below about a discount!)
Just like my last giveaway, there are four ways to enter.
For each of these things you will get an entry (do all of them and you get four chances at winning!). I will choose the winner using random.org on the 13th of July, 2010. So enter now!

1. Comment on this post
2. Tweet this message: ” I entered @chrislanephoto #giveaway for an 8×10 #fineart #photo print. http://bit.ly/CLPwin3 ”
3. Share this link through facebook (and let me know you did): http://bit.ly/CLPwin3
4. Subscribe via email to this blog. (If you are already subscribed, just comment that you are interested and I’ll enter you – an automatic two entries!)

Pretty Big Deal

Also, in celebration, I am giving an 11% discount on any prints ordered from now until the end of July 2010! Why 11%? Because it’s more than 10% and who doesn’t like more? No need to enter any kind of discount code, since I handle the orders myself and I will just apply the discount when I send you an invoice. Payment is through paypal and you can order as many as you want with this discount. Just visit my print order page to fill in the names and sizes you want (plus shipping info, etc).
