NOT so Phun Phriday

If At First You Don't Succeed, Try Again!
(Check out last post before reading this)
Well, I tried something new on my last post and it didn't work!!  I didn't do my homework.  I learned that 'Mr. Linky' only posts URLs, and does not post thumbnails of photos.  Well, who wants to look at a bunch of boring URLs???   Will that entice anyone to visit your blogs? I don't think so!!  I want people to have a glimpse of my talented blogging photographer friends' work, and make it an easy one click to get to your blog.   Now I've discovered 'Inlinkz' that posts thumbnails and your name, so I'm going to try again.  And for those of you who commented, but said you don't do fall decorations or you don't have a mantle,  so you couldn't participate, I'm really going to make this easy.  Just create a post with a photo of your choice.  Then come to my post and follow the directions below the following photo.   I really need some help to see if I can make this work!!!  If I say "Pretty Please"???  

Are You Talking to ME????

Yay! It seems to work. I posted mine early just to see, as I think my post for Saturday fits with the experimental nature of this project. We're all learning - that's what's fun!

Thank you SO much Jenny. I really appreciate this!

Robin said...

Karen, Works for me too!

Hmm...it worked. I'm surprised I could do it. I wouldn't ever consider trying to set up something like you've done here. Well done.

SouthernSass said...

Hi Karen, I joined in and love the idea of learning about this wonderful world of photography. Love your peacock photo.

Well this is much better than the Mr. Linky thing. Glad you found something you like better and does what you really were trying to accomplish in the first place. I think I forgot to mention this morning how beautiful your mantle decoration is.

Great work Karen - you've made it that much more interesting to go and visit other blogs. Oh, and great shot of the peacock !! Colours are fabulous as is the dof to get that great background.

Ginny said...

Great idea! I'll have to go check what's worthy of sharing from my blog. :)

Jessica said...

Karen, my visit to your lovely blog is way overdue. I will definitely be coming back and visiting more often now. And this inlinks thing is cool! Maybe I will try it out some time soon!

That sure is a beauty of a peacock. Amazing shot.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Oh, my... these are some-kind-of-beautiful photographs... I am soooooo impressed. That peacock is stunning!! You are all inspiring me to work toward shots like these!! Karen, thank you for all the inspiration!

WhatKarenSees said...

Thank you everyone for helping me figure this out. Technology is not one of my strong points. I want to showcase my "Phabulous Photographer Phriends" on my "Phun Phriday" posts often and I think I've found this is the best way to do this! I also figured out I can make the thumbnails even bigger to give people a better view. Thanks again!
