My favorite part of creating a blog post is choosing the photo, because as they say, "a picture is worth a thousand words".
Through the magic of Twitter, I found out about an amazing blog called iCrochet, that is comprised of random photos of crochet projects from crocheters around the world. How wonderful that there is a blog that says it all with photos of crochet, and allows anyone to submit!
When the owner of the blog, opens up a new gallery, there is an opportunity to "submit your link". It is very simple; you just enter the link to your blog post, and then you are able to choose any photo from that particular post to be included in the gallery. After a about a week, the gallery closes, creating a mini exhibition of images. Anyone who visits the site and is interested in learning more about a project, can click on the image and will be taken to the blog post about it.
It is incredibly colorful and a great source of inspiration! It is also a neat way to preview several blog posts in one place, and an effective way to gain a new audience for your work.
