This Blog Turns One!


June 21 marks the first anniversary of Second Shot. On this day last year, the blog had its inaugural article .. can you remember the title?

To commemorate the occasion, I'm going to thank each and every one of you who left a note on this blog. They are encouraging and your participation could not be more appreciated. Your comments, whether personal anecdotes or snippets of geography and history of old Singapore, have been edutaining to say the least. Keep your comments coming!

One year, 63 posts, many comments. Here I acknowledge you readers, in alphabetical order of names.

Blog Revamp

I'm also using the chance to revamp Second Shot. First, I think the user experience from the site design could be better. I have certain readability issues with my own blog and I suspect most readers just exit after glancing through the photos. Bad writing is a factor (opps!), but so is the design. I hope the new design fixes the issues. I'm also planning to add more links and photos. Singapore certainly has many good bloggers around and I want to consolidate my list of favourites.

I have preserved the old design though, in the form of a screenshot. Reminisce.

Happy anniversary!

I enjoy your art of precision heritage photography and fresh point of view. Keep up the passion, well done!

Well done. You have pioneered the term 2nd Shot. And yes I remember you first article was in response to something I blogged about but I could not recall the title.

Thanks for all the well wishes people! It has been a fruitful first year. Hope for good harvest this year.
