Yes, there is a method to my madness. I know you all see me publicize my beautiful photo link called Wordless Wednesday, all day Tuesday and you are all at home asking, Why Mitch, Why??
Firstly, lets start with the reason I even do a photo essay every week. Originally I was told to do it to draw some traffic to my site. You all know I exist only to increase my numbers after all. So I started with posting a picture every week. Then I realized I enjoyed it and I started to try to post pictures that meant something to each other, sort of a photo essay for dummies, with me being the principal dummy!
Then I added the linky, to again, try to increase traffic. And you know what happened next? I began to feel apart of a community. We were all a group posting fun pictures from the different places we all found ourselves in, in our lives! And we got to know each other! The same people linking up each week for months and even years. I ended up knowing some of these folks and being friends on Facebook. Then to top it all off, I met Mapsgirl.ca at Blogher13 and she introduced herself and said she was one of those where we each linked to each other’s sites! I was thrilled and of course our next post was of each other! This is one of the personal benefits that I receive from blogging, the warm, wonderful people I meet from across the land!
So, the big question remains, why Tuesday?
The first link invites hit my mail box before 7 am every Tuesday morning. And I publish my post with linky by 7:15 am every Tuesday as well. By the end of the day we are all almost finished and have full Wordless Wednesday posts, full of pictures and comments!
All so that the subscribers get the full benefit when they receive my gaynycdad.com email every Wednesday morning! That is it, the subscribers get the benefit of all my linking work in their Wednesday blog email.
Because it is, after all, all about YOU!
