Welcome to my Updates page. This page is provided for you so that you can get the latest updates and additions to my website. An archive of these updates will be provided as this site grows.
- A few things I’m adding to this site soon: Social icons with links, a page for upcoming content and content ideas, a resources page, a feedback page, a contact page, website directory pages, Twitter directory pages, Facebook groups/pages directory pages. Yeah… I’ve got a lot of page building to do.
- Some upcoming layout changes: Some parts of the home page are showing on the blog section, and single post pages. I will (when time permits) be removing some of these parts from those sections as I feel that not everything on the home page needs to be available site-wide. That’s what the home page is for.

2022-05-15-SUN @ 4:39 AM CST – A new Ebooks page has been added to the website. This page will be used to provide a listing to all of the newest ebooks I have available. I will add that page to the main menu at the top of the website soon.
2022-05-14-SAT @ 9:10 PM CST – My latest photo ebook, DAY TRIP 001, is now available.

All the information you need can be found here.
2022-05-11-WED @ 3:29 PM CST – This update is a “behind the scenes” update, but I thought it was important to mention. Using the power of WordPress reusable blocks, I have now turned two sections of the layout into automatically updating content blocks. As I continue working, I will use more of these reusable blocks to simplify how I manage this website, and also save myself time in the long run since updates will run fluent from just needing to update only one place within the site to make all content display across the board.
2022-05-11-WED @ 1:16 PM CST – The Updates Archive 002 May 2022 page was added to the blog yesterday.
2022-05-11-WED @ 1:18 PM CST – The announcement post was added to the blog yesterday for MUDWALKER NEWSLETTER 002. I apologize for forgetting to post it earlier this month. Don’t forget you can always check my Newsletter page to get the latest issue, and that my newsletter is a free pdf download you can take with you.
2022-05-10-TUE @ 5:53 PM CST – I have a new journal entry up on my Today page.
UPDATES FOR APRIL 2022:
2022-04-27-WED @ 11:26 PM CST – In my MUDPIX OUTDOORS PHOTO EBOOKS store, I have new lower pricing on previously published photo ebooks containing my photography from West Point Lake, and Lake Harding. Some of these ebooks have been marked down because they are on schedule to be republished under my new brand, MUDPIX OUTDOORS. I also updated the links to my social media in the store.
2022-04-20-WED @ 4:35 AM CST – Collecting 355 Instagram profile url’s that you are following is not a fast acheivement, but I’ve just finished doing that. I’ve got some more to go, but I’m taking a break for awhile.
2022-04-20-WED @ 12:19 AM CST – Got called in for work tonight. So I won’t get any website work completed until another time later. That’s ok. I’m using my time at work to do something that will contribute to the directory later on. I’m gathering profile url’s on Instagram that I’m following and putting them into categories so that I can have an organized list of all the accounts I’m following.
2022-04-19-TUE @ 4:21 AM CST – New website links are getting listed in my MUDWALKER NEWSLETTER, so there will be plenty of updates in the next issue. If you haven’t already, you can get the current issue here.
2022-04-17-SUN @ 3:45 AM CST – Progress is underway to start building a website directory here on DDAVIDD.com so that I can provide links to useful and interesting websites as I discover them. It will be a simple directory, but will consist of many pages. The first section coming is an alphanumerical set of listings. Then I plan to make a section for website listings by interest. From there I will move on to creating some social media related directories, and also possibly a blog directory. I plan to hopefully get the alphanumerical pages up later tonight.
2022-04-15-FRI @ 6:30 AM CST – You don’t see it behind the scenes, but I’ve been working my ass off over the past four days to get the website relaunch started and get started rebuilding pages. Your Friday is currently my Monday. That means I have a busy busy weekend ahead. I did not get any photo editing done over the past few days while getting my website in order. I (oops) forgot to do it. So if you’re following me on Twitter where photos are getting posted, they are scheduled through to Monday the 18th of this month. When I get my next off day on Monday, I will try to remember to do some editing to keep the photo flow going. I doubt I’ll make many updates on the website this weekend but maybe I will.
2022-04-15-FRI @ 1:53 AM CST – I have posted Updates Archive 001 April 2022 to the blog. All of the updates that you see on the Updates page will be moved to their own monthly archive page throughout each month for historical purposes. These archives will be primarily created for my own use to help me maintain this website. Note that it is always best to check the Updates page first for the latest updates and news.
2022-04-15-FRI @ 1:25 AM CST – My Newsletter page is now on site. This is where you can download the current issue of my MUDWALKER NEWSLETTER.
2022-04-14-THU @ 7:04 PM CST – I have updated pages to show titles above and below featured photos. For now it’s experimental, and I will probably do it on blog post pages as well. Since the new theme I’m using on my website displays large featured images, it was bugging me not to see titles at the top of the page while browsing around, and I had to scroll down to see the title. I’m guessing this is probably irritating to everyone else as well. So there is a good chance this change might stay permanent. Also I’m considering that having the titles show up twice might be overkill, so I’m considering to remove titles under the featured photos, and just keep them above.
2022-04-14-THU @ 8:45 AM CST – A relaunch of this website has been made this morning with a brand new website layout. Website building with new pages and posts will begin.
