Welcome back to Talk of the Town!
Before we look at this week's wonderful features, here are a few little tips about how to get featured at Talk of the Town, and improve your blog at the same time. We really want to feature you!
How to Get Featured at Talk of the Town (or any link party!)
As everyone knows a picture is worth a thousand words, and that's so true for blog photography.
No matter how awesome your project, recipe, or post is, if you don't have great photos, you aren't doing it justice.
Here are some problems we frequently see in photos linked up to the party.
1 - The photos are too small.
You are more likely to get featured if your photos are LARGER.
We frequently see great projects we'd love to feature, but the photos are just too small.
2 - The photos are either too dark or too bright.
A cloudy day outdoors or a well-lit spot indoors tend to make the best places to take photos. Along that line, don't use your flash. It ruins otherwise great photos.
3 - Create a "scene".
Dress up your photos with props that make your photo more interesting.
4 - Use a foam board as a backdrop.
A white foam board makes a crisp, bright background for small projects and instantly makes the photo POP!
First, let's take a look at what you may have missed from your party hosts!
Here's what we're talking about from last week's party!
Each week we feature a blogger and their blog to introduce you to different bloggers who link up with us.
Make sure to pay them a visit and say hello while you're there!
This week our featured Blogger is Mistie from Homespun Engineer!
Mistie is a wife, mom, and super creative crafter. She loves dressing up in high heels and pretty pink lip gloss; other days she craves a baseball hat and paint splattered t-shirt. Be sure to pay her a visit!
