I always thought photo blogs were smoking hot in high visitation numbers. I even thought they were popular among those photo snatchers too.
I always assumed garden blogs were much less visited. But what floored me…
was photo blogs. Just take a scroll through the WP Reader and you see post after post with 0 comments and 0 Likes. Likely, no one is viewing the post. How sad. Sometimes I view them just so they have a visitor and a comment.
The other day I was reading one, and in post he mentioned only getting 20 views a day and on a great day 50. I was left dumb-struck. So this got me thinking as to why since the photos on these blogs are beautiful. Plus, going out to shoot nature takes time. So why the poor visiting numbers?
Another I saw a few days ago had the best professional photos (Nat Geo good) of prairie dogs and the story was very heartfelt on the cute little rodents losing their homes to development. This wildlife blogger had no comments and 2 Likes after two days. It really questions what people think is really good photography?
Obviously, some photo blogs do very well, I was just surprised at some that I thought did, yet didn’t.
So how does one stand out in this endless sea of photo bloggers? Personal stories, something helpful, entertaining or incites discussion. It did not help the prairie dog post.
Glad I did not class my new blog as a photo blog! Nature and Wildlife Pics thanks those that have chosen to follow or visit.
I have been sneaking in some gardens for you gardeners, so I think you will enjoy it. Much of what you see here of nature, you can see there if you enjoy these images. Some are much more dramatic like my angry hawk photos. So unusual, I posted some of the 100 images taken of the hawks on GWGT, along with the story trying to find out why they exhibited this odd behavior.
I just got done saying on Nature and Wildlife Pics that I never saw a Great Spangled Fritillary and what shows up in numbers? If you saw my garden this past week, you saw I have an abundance of flowers in bloom. I have been seeing this butterfly everywhere now. It might be a local irruption.
Click the gallery to see my insects bigger. Bigger is always better. Insects and gardens go hand in hand. I like my bugs and so do my flowers!
Next…a garden post on GWGT. On Nature and Wildlife Pics, a nature hike along the Niagara River.
