More Mardi Gras Scenes


 

 

With the flag.

Scenes from the street. The Battleground as they used to say. Lots of preparation, Arriving, Walking. Always walking.

One more thing. WordPress is trying to force us into their new and “improved” design. It’s become hellish to post. Pictures cannot be organized as I intended. And, they may or may not upload. I think it’s time to leave this platform. They won’t care. With 90 million new bloggers, why should they?

    No, they won’t care, but to where? Certainly not FB. WP and FB are the two hosts people I know use. So I feel stuck with both. I have no solution to offer.

    • Oh, there’s Tumblr and Goggle’s own Blogger. I can also blog directly from laskowitzpictures.com which is my more commercial and portfolio site. There are other blogging sites as well, some well know, others not so much. There is a new art-oriented social media site called Ello, but you have to be invited which does very little for public exposure.

    yes, I was OK with Tumblr when I tried it except I didn’t solve the follow issue to my satisfaction, when I followed someone back who posts 20 thingsin a day, essentially reblogging and liking. There are a lot of people there that apparently believe quantity is quality. It was all those notifications that I didn’t like. . But, yes, Tumblr is easy and seems to work well. OK, so now that I wrote this, I think I know the solution, it’s un-follow. Blogger, I didn’t like for a few reasons. That’s where I started long ago.

    • Most people believe in quantity over quality. I have a large number of WordPress blogs that are set to once a week. I’ve staggered them around the week and still don’t generally read them because it’s too much… and usually, they aren’t very good. There are a few who do as you say — reblogs and comments — that I’ve just gotten rid of. I started with Eblogger too. I didn’t like being beholden to Google, especially when it came to ad sense and ad words. There is also a blog call Hub. I used them for a while. However, they believe in quantity of writing… in order to gain any kind of high placement and with that audience, they expected 2500 words per blog… I come from the Mark Twain school of thought. Far less is way more.
