I Use Pictures of Your Items in my Posts

There are many "rules" to make your blog posts more interesting and readable. One of them is to include pictures to break up the post. Doing so makes reading easier and more interesting. I agree with that but I know that you are not following me to see pictures of my creations. If you want that you can always go to my shop. I even have them organized in categories for you there.

I like to promote other shops but I don't always have the time to look through all

the shops I like for items to include on my blog. That's where you come in. It only seems fair that I choose pictures from those of you reading my blog. I start with the comments because comments let me know that you are reading the blog. If I still don't have enough pictures to accompany the article, then I go to my blog followers.

I am very OCD (CDO if you go alphabetically) so I even keep a list of my followers. I just go through that list looking for a shop that I haven't used yet.

Remember to comment if you want to be sure that I use pictures of your items. You can even include a link if you want to promote a specific piece. I don't mind at all.

Most people don't have a problem with mind if I use their pictures, but if you don't want me to use your pictures, just let me know.

I would like to thank cctexan and ArtbySunfire for the use of their photos. You can click on the picture to be taken to the item listing or their shop name to be taken to the shop.

I agree with you completely. I don't really ever feature my own products unless it's something specific like a nomination or if I have had an article written about me. But that's few and far between. I enjoy featuring other artists myself.

That's a great idea- and it does help to break up the blog a little. Good job!

That's a great idea! It's nice to see what others have, along with your own items, and makes blogs more interesting! Thanks Susan
