Best Tip For Bloggers
One of the most common “best tip for bloggers” is to post frequently. Well duh. That’s somewhat intuitive and not really a tip.
QueerJoe’s Best Tip For Bloggers
Perhaps blogging is no longer a thing. And nobody reads blogs anymore. My web site traffic statistics would indicate otherwise. So I’ll continue to blog. But honestly, blogging for me is like journaling. There’s a lot of personal gain I get from doing it. Whether anyone reads it or not.
So…the tip. Back in August of 2013 I did a month of daily photos that I found interesting. It was a challenge coming up with 31 photos that I considered to be artistic, aesthetically interesting and might appeal to readers of a queer-knitting blog.
I highly recommend doing this if you’re a blogger. It was over 10 years ago now. And I still find myself constantly looking for photo subjects that I might use in the blog. A simple photo of something interesting, beautiful and/or unusual can even be the source of a blog entry topic
Today’s feature photo was found during a recent walk along the Delaware River in New Jersey. I don’t know who took the time to create a little house for river stones out of a tree trunk. But I automatically pulled out my camera and took some photos of it.
The month-long search for photos 10 years ago has put me into a life-long habit of always taking photos of anything that grabs my eye. Which in turn, gives me a trove of content and ideas for blog entries.
Fevered pitch is how I’d describe my knitting of these hens.
You’ll note that I’ve got 2 hens almost complete, with two more to go.
This one seems to have a judgmental look. Instead of being an emotional support chicken, she seems to be saying…”Just keep knitting…you’ve got a long way to go.”
