Welcome back to Talk of the Town!
Wow, it was a busy weekend for me! I traveled to Nashville to help my daughter (jamie) and son-in-law (andy) move from a temporary home to their new home. It was quite involved as we had to clean out a garage at their original residence, pack up the temporary home, and get settled in their new home! THREE houses that had to be dealt with! I’ll be blogging a lot about the entire process in the coming months, but a lot of it is has to stay a secret for now! Let’s party!
Before we look at this week's wonderful features, here are a few little tips about how to get featured at Talk of the Town, and improve your blog at the same time. We really want to feature you!
How to Get Featured at Talk of the Town (or any link party!)
As everyone knows a picture is worth a thousand words, and that's so true for blog photography.
No matter how awesome your project, recipe, or post is, if you don't have great photos, you aren't doing it justice.
Here are some problems we frequently see in photos linked up at the party.
1 - The photos are too small.
I guarantee you, you are more likely to get featured if your photos are LARGER.
We frequently see great projects we'd love to feature, but the photos are just too small.
2 - The photos are either too dark, or too bright.
A cloudy day outdoors, or a well-lit spot indoors tend to make the best places to take photos. Along that line, don't use your flash. It ruins otherwise great photos.
3 - Create a "scene".
Dress up your photos with props that make your photo more interesting.
4 - Use a foam board as a backdrop.
A white foam boardmakes a crisp, bright background for small projects and instantly makes the photo POP!
Those are just a few little tips we hope will help. Now, on to the party!
First, let's take a look at what you may have missed from your party hosts!
Here's what we're talking about from last week's party!
Each week we feature a blogger and their blot to introduce you to different bloggers that link up with each week.
Make sure to pay them a visit and say hello while you're there!
This week our featured Blogger is Mistie from Homespun Engineer!
Mistie is a wife, mom, and super creative crafter. She loves dressing up in high heels and pretty pink lip gloss, and other days craves a baseball hat and paint splattered t-shirt. Be sure to pay her a visit!
