Hi Friends and Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a great start!
At last week’s party, we enjoyed the delicious flavors of fall and this week I am excited to feature three FABULOUS fall crafts.
Please remember to…
Be sure to head over to My Wee Abode and Reinvented Delaware to check out SIX additional features from Tuesday Turn About! If you haven’t been featured at My Family Thyme this week, you may have been featured there!
Weekly Household Tip
Are you a coffee drinker? My daughter and I are! I use my Keurig coffee make everyday and have for the past nine years!
To keep it working well, it needs regular cleaning. I have tried cleaning it with vinegar, but to be honest, it took a so many rinses to get rid of the vinegar taste that I looked for a different option. The one cleaning product that I have found that really works well is Quick and Clean Cleaning Cups for Keurig Machines. With easy to follow directions, cleaning your Keurig is fast and easy. These pods provide great results for keeping your machine brewing smoothly.
Julie’s Weekly Blogging Tip
Do you backlink to similar blog niches or “authorities” in your posts?
Don’t be afraid to do this. Adding links to your posts that are helpful to your content is a great way to create Domain Authority which, in turn, tells Google to pay attention to your site! So go on… add a link (or two) to an outside source that enriches your content and helps your readers! It will help you, too!
Cindy’s Photography Tip
Do you use your smartphone camera or a DSLR? Here are Cindy’s thoughts.
You know by now that my preference for photography is using a DSLR. I know many of you prefer using a smartphone since the cameras on a smartphone are so sophisticated now.
There are many reasons I prefer a DSLR over my iPhone camera, especially for blogging but the main reason is the amount of control I have over the initial capture and the control I have in editing.
I won’t go into all of that in this post but maybe it is something we should chat about in the future. Let me know in the comments if you are interested and we will chat about it!
In the meantime, if you are using your smartphone for photography, be sure to consider the distortion that it will create. And believe me, it will create distortion!
The biggest error I see bloggers make (especially since joining in as a host on this link party!) is not paying attention to the object that is closest to the lens.
Whatever is closest to the lens will appear larger. That’s something to consider when capturing images for your posts.
Here is a good habit to get into: take a picture with your phone camera, then look at it with different eyes. Study the image and make sure the subject is correctly proportionate to what you see in real life.
The camera distorts, but your eyes do not. We need to see the image the way the camera sees it and adjust our position and angle to correctly show what the scene is like in person without the distortion of the camera.
This is a skill and it takes practice but you can develop an eye for spotting distortion! 😊
