In my experimenting with Tumblr with a sports blog, a thought occurred to me. I take quite a few photos with my phone while traveling, and some with my camera when I have that with me. Some of them get shared on Flickr, or Instagram or Facebook, but when I want to point people to my photography using the link from here, I don’t really have one link to point them to.
Since Tumblr is really designed for photos and videos, I thought why not take advantage of cross posting abilities and a fe IFTTT recipes, why not make a photo blog where people who don’t want to try and decide whether to follow me on Facebook, Flickr or Instagram, can see some of the random photos I’ve been taking while on the road? So I added a second Tumblr blog:
As I was working on posting some photos from our trip to New Orleans I was reminded of this phrase. Unfortunately, it is a phrase I should have taken to heart soon after our time in NOLA as opposed to just now. We all need to kick back and let the good times roll every now and again. Without some fun and enjoyment in our day to day lives, it can really all get to be too much. So go out and enjoy yourself every now and again, the work and everything else will be there when you get done!
Over on my tech blog, I’ve been writing a few posts about the challenges of getting your posts actually viewed by people who have “liked” your Facebook page, and now some more thoughts about adding a page you want to follow more closely to an interest list. That got me thinking about creating, and sharing, a child abuse survivor related interest list over on Facebook.
Unfortunately, I don’t have the time right now to try and put that together, however since you can create a public list and share it so others could subscribe to it, I did want to reach out to my readers, and Facebook “likers”, and see if anyone had done that and wanted to share the list in the comments. Let me know if you have done that, especially if you’ve added this blog’s Facebook page to it as well!
Since much of my vacation time was spent traveling to Ireland and Scotland this year, I think you’ll see those photos dominating my favorite shots from this year.
