An Unexpected Request

Do you remember Cheri Lucas Rowlands? I remember reading articles published on behalf of WordPress written by her. She may have even taken part in the WordPress photo challenge (I do miss that one!). I received an email from her last week saying that she would like to share one of my images on social media. I was quite excited as it is quite a feat to be noticed amongst the many articles that are published on blogs each day.

My photo was published on Instagram on Saturday.

I was a little disappointed that I did not get any extra traffic on my blog – nor on my Instagram account. Once again, I wished that links can be inserted on Instagram so that people could use them to visit my blog.

Despite my disappointment, knowing that my photo and post had received attention did make me smile.

What made you smile this week?

  1. How fantastic! I bet you were really thrilled. I love your journal images! I suspect, though, that there is so much traffic on Instagram that it’s pretty hard to get noticed. I think I follow you on there? I’ll pop and have a look. 🙂 🙂


  2. Cool to be picked up by WordPress. They only have about a gazillion followers. Your photo got a lot of hits.Definitely something to smile about. I usually net about 5 or 6 ‘real’ followers when one of my photos is re-posted.I’m kind of glad they make you hid the link to your blog in your profile. That way if people want to see what your are about, they will work for it. Great Smile story!
