Meg Porter – Fort Worth, Texas
Dear Friends of @Megapixel,
Alright, so this is a weird post, but one that needs to be made. A few years ago, when I decided to use my name for my blog site, I tried to get www.megporter.com. However, this site was already taken by a vlogger/blogger/twitter/photographer gal in Fort Worth Texas whose name happened to be Meg Porter.
I couldn’t figure out why she hadn’t posted anything past 2009. I kept digging and found out that she had passed away in a head on collision in June 2009 (DFW Renaissance). Her twitter account remains active as does her YouTube account.
Last year I noticed that her site had come down and the domain was now owned by someone in China. I thought about asking to buy it out, but figured that my site, www.megporterphotography.com, was working as it should.
Two weeks ago, I searched again only to find that the domain was available for purchase. So I purchased it, redirected it to this site, and so far I hadn’t had any hits/searches for Meg in Texas.
Today, I noticed that someone had searched for her and found my site – so I wanted to make a post in memory of her with links where her words, and her videos could be found. I thought it was the least I could do.
I do find it a bit ironic that me, another photographer, would share a domain with someone that was a vibrant as Meg seemed to be. And I am sorry that she has been lost to her family, friends, and community, both in real life and online.
So whoever was searching for her – I hope this post helps you.
