Thought Process

About a week or so ago, I realized that my pictures on iheartsl.com were not sizing down correctly. Although I was seeming to follow the instructions of copy/pasting from Flickr and grabbing the correct size to add to my WordPress blog, the picture was not sizing down to the appropriate one. So, when I finally figured it out and corrected it, something happened. My pictures in my blog downsized. They no longer seemed to fit my blog the way I wanted them too. They didn’t pop out. The theme I use in WordPress enhances my pictures. I choose the style because I wanted to focus on the pictures, the blogging, and my writing. Links are hidden in the pages, so you don’t see them on the sidelines. I choose this way, because this blog was to be about me. That’s fair right?

So where does this leave me? Stipulations about how to get your blog on SL feeds – you need to re-size your photos to fit their blog. I scratched that. I stopped sending my blog over to iheartsl.com. Not because I’m upset with the blog itself, but because I cannot be arsed to manipulate my pictures. Sure people are going to argue that I can do this or that. Or that feeds are a requirement for certain designers. To be honest: my blog has a pretty good following, not to mention I promote on Flickr, on Plurk and on Facebook. If you’re like me – I have a Google Reader (yes I know it’s going away…) and am subscribed to a ton of blogs that go directly to my email, so that I can look and read over them. Feeds are great for some people, but I don’t see the necessary point of them. I am on a few feeds. Of course, I don’t even know if they are even working anymore because one seems to close every other month.

If someone wants to see my work or read what I have to say – they should come to my blog. They should click on my link, spend time on my site. This is my promotion. This is my thought process.
