Best Wishes & Thank You!
Thank you for being a part of TrueToad - I appreciate and welcome you! Like you, I enjoy photography and I hope you take away from your visit is enjoyment, visual pleasure, knowledge, and inspiration. You owe me nothing and I expect nothing in return - I offer my site to you to enjoy without annoyances, pop up ads or malware.
To ensure the best security practices I employ two independent security providers to perform Information Assurance scans and verification, ensuring this site remains spam, and malware free (SiteLock & McAfee Secure) and to the best of my ability, my content remains non-intrusive AD free. You may validate my site through McAfee.
About Me: My motivation for posting content on TrueToad.com is not for revenue purposes or to "fame" myself. I have a day job working as a professional on the east coast. I established TrueToad.com domain about six years ago for the purpose of sharing my passion for photography with other enthusiast, and the beginner community. In doing this, I specifically avoided Facebook, flicker, and other so called free sites because what I found out is FREE comes at a cost; usually your privacy or forced embedded mandatory ADs. Because I did not want to let ADs or other commercial non-sense dictate your enjoyment of the site. I host and manage my own web servers and control all aspect of managing the web technologies and content. This ensures I can fully control my site, preventing un-necessary “stuff” from getting in the way of simple navigation to a particular article, blog post, image, or review found on this site.
You simply don’t find intrusive ADs and Pop ups on on my Domains. I do every bit of this work using my time and my dime, from configuration of IIS web servers, the software, buying Information Assurance protection, the underlying infrastructure, and then making time to actually go out and use the photo equipment I have. Followed by me posting and writing each and every word on this site and others – bad grammar and all. I do this for you! and of course me, because photography is fun! that is why you are here in the first place. I can easily share photos all the while you should have a pleasant experience no matter what device you use, the site is for everyone, no pop ups, or other non-sense ADs you don't want to watch.
In the internet of things – I try never to post negativity regardless of opinions and comments of others. I like playing fair and when I can I help promote others in their positive endeavors, I try! We are a common community who love photography, and when I see you out with your gear - we are family.
I am always in need of advice and counsel thus you can leave me anonymous comments using one of two methods. 1. The main page has a comments area – go for it. 2. You may use the contact me page if you wish to reply, either way I received all input, thanks in advance for taking time to visit and comment.
Thank your for being a "right" brainer, we need more like us.
