Photo Prompt was suggested by Kari Murray of the blog I don’t Wear Pink Camo to the Woods.
I think we can all agree that we’d much rather be outside playing then indoors sitting behind a computer. But since we are all required to go home occasionally and we are Outdoor Bloggers, we end up behind a computer from time to time working on our Outdoor Blogs.
So lets see those Outdoor Blog Work stations. Do you have an Outdoor view from your computer? Can you see snow right now or are you one of the lucky ones down South surrounded by green?
Is your computer area a bit like mine? Littered with Diet Coke cans and snicker bar wrappers? Are you on a big PC or a little laptop? This prompt completes the picture a bit more for readers of your blog. Show them where you work and they’ll be able to picture you there writing up your Outdoor Observations.
Attention: The other day we asked for feedback about the site and one idea I’m implementing today came from Extreme Adventure News. He said, “When you do a “Writing Prompt”, perhaps make a post listing all of those that have contributed. That way links are going back and forth to all of the sites. I think a link in a post is more lucrative, traffic wise, than a link to your own post left in a comment.”
I read that and thought….I can find a system to achieve that sort of blogger interaction. So below is what I’d like to try for this photo prompt. If all goes well, once you have posted your Blog post, come back here and click the “Click Here To Enter” below and fill your blog information/photo into the form. The result should be visual thumbnails of your blog picture that people can click and go directly to your blog site.
1)Make sure and connect a your blog post URL to your photo or it will link back to the OBN
2) Click the Web Option and it will grab your most recent blog pictures as your thumbnail option
Here’s to crossing my programming fingers! I hope everyone likes this enhancement and if not, I’ll try a different one! Let me know if you encounter any issues in the comments below.
