Housekeeping Today and Some Goodies

Blog, Housekeeping, annoying, bugging me, blogging, chores, pet peevesI heard from Ryan at INSIGHT last night and it seems there isn’t much voting happening. This is what’s bugging me today!

Because of this, housekeeping is a little different this time around. But then I like being different!

He’s asked me to help out and I couldn’t say no because what he is trying to do is fantastic. Giving more recognition to some of the great photos that are being published every week in the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge.

He has gone through all the photos by himself and choosing the Best 10 to vote on.

If  you haven’t voted already please head on over and cast your vote in the following two polls.

Week #1

Weekly Photo Voting! “Boundaries” (via INSIGHT)

Weekly Photo Voting! "Curiosity"

Please do read the previous post before proceeding further. And so here it is!!! The very 1st “Weekly Photo Challenge Championships” 🙂 The theme was “Boundaries”. It was the very 1st WordPress Photo Challenge. Till date there were 119 comments under the topic with almost equal number of entries. I’ve gone through all of them (The ones who posted it in the Weekly Photo Challenge Topic only). The ones who didn’t post it under that topic wi … Read More


Please help get the word out.

Week #2

Weekly Photo Voting! “Curiosity” (via INSIGHT)

Weekly Photo Voting! "Curiosity"

Ok so my 1st experiment with the “Weekly Photo Voting” didn’t exactly set the world or rather the bloggers on fire coz the voting process seems to be going on at a snails pace. The voting process is in its closing stages. You can still vote for it at Weekly Photo Voting- Boundaries. So I thought that I’d give one final try with the Weekly Photo Voting for CURIOSITY, the next theme. This was of course the 2nd theme of “The Post a Week”. . … Read More

Goodies, Things in life I find annoying, RandomBlog2011, PostADay2011, PostAWeek2011Now some goodies for you. 🙂

I found two sites where you can find images and clip art that is in the public domain. This means you can use them freely on your blog and both sites allow you to edit the clip art image.

Enjoy! 😎

    Hi Rose good point re the voting and supporting Ryan at insight. He’s shown great initiative starting the polls. The weekly photo challenge is great fun but this adds a new dimension. I looked earlier and it’s a shame nothing much is happening.

    It would be a good idea when we post a photo each week (regardless of whether our photos have been previously selected or not) if all our buddies add a link back to his site and poll and of course vote 🙂

    Come on folks please support Ryan 🙂 Pretty please 😛 For those of us on Twitter his Twitter address is @Ryan2484

    Hang in there Ryan!

    Great post Rose…it’s nice to support a fellow blogger 🙂

    PiP’s comment about linking back to Ryan’s blog and the polls is a good idea 💡
    Ryan has put so much work into this, the least we can do is support him, so c’mon guys, get your votes in!

    Here is the link for the first one to vote on

    Thanks for the additional smilies Rose – they are great and will be used a lot I think!

      Hi Barb, It is a great idea! I think we could also add the link to comments we leave on other blogs this weekend. Just like you did here.

      I see you like the smilies too and are already using them. I think they add a nice touch to the comments. 😎
