Pic’n’Post Event – Easier than ever before!


Flexibility’s the word: as long as there’s a picture to accompany it, one or more of all the following types of text are welcome – the more variety, the better!

  • The true story behind the picture. Why did you take it? What attracted you to that particular subject? What does it show?
  • A short piece of fiction inspired by the picture.
  • The technical specifications, either at the time of shooting or of editing
  • A caption
  • A poem

Contributions are welcome any time (just post your link in the comments), and will be rounded up every other Monday, with links back to the original post. Have fun!

  1. Love the picture. Is this your ‘picnpost’ thingie Curtis, or someone else’s?
    Also…. re the pingbacks i see…. i get numerous… other people putting a link to mypage which is a pingback. they usually come in multiple does – ie someone has ‘pingbacked’ 100% of all the posts in a photo challenge, which doesnt really indicate to me they’ve read any.
    I usually just delete them.
    So I don’t really get it. What’s your advice? What do bloggers get out of accepting other people’s pingbacks ( that’s if they arent lost in hundreds of others, as above.) Do you re-pingback others, for the effort? What’s the courtesy here? I know there’s wordpress artciles on them, I’ve read them, but they dont seem to have much connection to the wily nily way a lotta people use them.

    What do you think? Thanks, Debbie

  2. Thanks for the comment, Debbie. Yes, it’s an event I started a while ago – not many participants yet! Re the pingbacks, I’m a bit in the dark about them too. I don’t get many, it’s only when someone links to a post, which only happens for the Pic’n’Post event, so for the moment they’re not bothersome. Maybe you’re getting a lot more traffic, to get that many pingbacks. Sorry I can’t be more helpful on that!
