Up in the air is an idiomatic expression used sometimes when people question what direction to take or what choice to make. So what is a choice I have to make…
How many of you are up in the air about something? Something which is tentative, iffy, uncertain, unresolved and of course, there is always the literal up in the air like the way birds and planes live much of their lives.
Why the post is called up in the air is that this post and another got combined to take a new direction, one where both posts were forgotten about and never got scheduled.
I schedule all my posts and every now and then they get so out of season that it makes no sense to post them at all until the next year. I was talking to another blogger about scheduling posts for when she goes away on vacation. She did not know how to do that on her WP blog, yet it is so darn simple.
Where it says Publish immediately Edit one just clicks Edit for the date and time to appear. Just change the date and time to what is desired , click OK, then Publish changes to Schedule. Click Schedule and your post will go live as scheduled.
Most all of my posts have been scheduled for 7am or 7pm on both blogs. Occasionally, I will have an unusual time, but that is rare. Scheduling posts makes sure they are not up in the air as to when to expect them.
Another reason I get up in the air, is which camera to use now that I travel with both the old (D7000) and new camera (D750). Like I mentioned, the old camera did a great job with bird photography. The new camera is much sharper, but gets less distance with all my lenses. Check out the old vs. new.
Speaking of posts, I was wondering if readers have specific topics and images they like seeing here on GWGT. Now that I have quite a few readers following Nature and Wildlife Pics for the abundance of images of my nature photography, do you like still seeing them here?
Sure I will still have my conservation, sustainability and environmental posts here on GWGT since they relate to my profession, but how about my birding hobby? Do you enjoy seeing and hearing about birds not regularly found in gardens?
Birds and gardens go hand in hand. GWGT has many posts on birds in the winter garden, attracting birds to gardens, adding shelter and food plants to gardens, and of course, photographing birds in gardens. Those type of posts will stay here also.
I am up in the air on what readers want to see on this blog. Please leave thoughts in the comments, they will greatly help.
And if you did not already go crazy clicking all those links to my posts, please check out the two new posts on Nature and Wildlife Pics. How Do Eagles Eat When the Lakes are Covered in Ice? and Crazy Old Coots. Both posts are fun and have nice photos from a recent trip. And if that is not encouragement enough, the newest Nature and Wildlife Pics posts are now displayed on the sidebar, easy to see what is posted there.
Next on GWGT…a search question that made me say…Really?
