This page is the busiest page across my whole website. This is where you can always find all the latest updates. Monday’s & Tuesday’s are basically my weekend days. So there may not be any updates posted during those days.

This home page serves as a common connection point (hub) and provides details and links to all of my other websites and blogs related to my ebooks and other projects, plus my social media pages, and favorite content around the internet.

In the past, I found it difficult at times to try and explain all of the different projects I may be working on at any given time. So I created this dedicated website just for that purpose.

DDAVIDD.com was officially established on the morning of Sunday, August 9th, 2020 @ 7:55 A.M. CST.

📱 This website is currently ad free for your uninterrupted browsing enjoyment. You’re welcome! 💻

MUDPIX 📸 MAGAZINE (My #1 Priority Photo Ebook Series)

My outdoor photography ebooks are what I love creating the most. In 2016, I began my journey of photographing the scenery, wildlife, and people (boaters, fishermen, and shore dwellers) around Lake Harding and West Point Lake in Alabama and Georgia. This ebook series is a journal of the photos I’ve taken in chronological order. There is no other ebook series like it on this planet. Start your collection now. Currently there are two issues available in this ebook series.

Visit my MUDPIX MAGAZINE website for more information.

Progress update: Two ebooks in this series have been published. The next ebook is currently in pending status for editing.

UNSPLASHED (Ebook Series)

I am a big fan of the Unsplash.com stock photography platform, but even bigger fan of many of the photographers who generously donate their photos to the platform for anyone to use for nearly any purpose including creating ebooks with them. My ebooks in this free series is one where I pick out a photographer to feature along with his or her photos. I publish this ebook series in the spirit of promoting others who are into photography like I am, and also to provide my ebook viewers with unique ebooks they won’t find anywhere else. I currently have one ebook in this series published and it’s available in my Gumroad ebook store.

Upcoming UNSPLASHED will feature photography by: Alexander Ant, Patrick Hodskins, & Woody Kelly (others to be listed).

Progress update: One ebook in this series has been published. The next ebook is currently in pending status for editing.

KALEIDOSCOPE ART (Ebook – Possible Series)

This ebook features some kaleidoscope art I’ve created on my Galaxy S8+ Android Phone. It contain over 1,000 art images with over 1,100 pages. It’s a huge ebook, and fans of symmetrical art will love it.

Progress update: This ebook was completed in September 2020. You can find it in my ebook store at Gumroad. A 2nd ebook is planned to start a series. It will be about half the length of the first ebook

PROJECT S.O.A.R. (Ebook Series)

Sunsets On Andrews Road is the title of a photo ebook series I began in 2012, but have never actually gotten around to publishing. It’s about stopping on the side of a road to watch beautiful sunsets, and photographing them. I took over 3,000 photos for this ebook series over the course of 90+ days. My plans are to publish each ebook in this series with about 500 photos each. More info to come.

Progress update: CURRENT MAIN EBOOK PROJECT – This ebook series is in it’s first phase of production – photo editing. I have 500+ photos of 500 edited for the first book in this series as of Monday, November 23rd, 2020. I am currently debating on whether to put the first ebook together soon and put it out for sale, or edit all of the photos for the entire series first. Because it’s been 7 years since I went out and took all those photos, I’m feeling like I need to go through them all to familiarize myself with them again before trying to put the ebooks together.

Random Things

I am constantly running across things on the internet that I like to share, that you may find interesting, and this spot on my home page is where I share them first in the form of short micro-blogs. These are “internet crumbs”, and snippets of info. Just enough to give you a clue of what’s interesting. This section on my home page makes it simple for you to find the newest things I see when I’m browsing the internet before they are archived on my blog. These “Random Things” are updated in real time, and are timestamped when I add them.

NOTICE: A newsletter is now being provided that will change how “Random Things” content is published. Random Things will transition into the newsletter. Plans are to publish this newsletter weekly, and Random Things will be phased out or moved to another location on this website. So you’ll still get my content recommendations. It will just be done differently in newsletter form and possible other area on this website. This newsletter is published in PDF format and is free to download. Find the newsletter in the website menu.

Jackery Explorer 240 Portable Power Station

Here is an item that is on my wishlist. It is a portable power source that goes beyond basic battery packs for keeping your phone, laptop, tablet and other small electric devices charged when on the go. You can actually use it to power an electric blanket when you go camping. This power source is made by a company called Jackery, and the link I’ve provided will take you to view thier smallest model, but you can easily find thier bigger, more powerful models on Jackery’s website. You can purchase optional solar charging panels for these battery packs which can set you up for long term off grid use. 2020-11-01-SUN-19:41-CST

Disclaimer: On my blog, I often choose photo headers for my blog posts that don’t match the topics I’m writing about. These header images usually come from unsplash.com as I love to use the stock photography there for my blog posts, and also to credit/link some talented photographers. This habit is most displayed in my “Just Thinking” blog category.
