It’s been feeling a bit like a ghost town around here recently… Ever since I moved to wordpress and I was beginning to wonder whether I’d suddenly developed a terrible case of B.O. or something else was going on…
In fact my blog is no longer showing up on blotanical since I updated my URL. I was wondering whether it was just because it’s now classed as a ‘new blog’ so it’s no longer appearing on the top 200 blogs, but actually I’m also not showing up in the alphabetical lists… Is it showing up on blotanical favourite blogs lists?
I guess this is a wakeup call just how much I depend on people visiting through blotanical!
Hopefully it’ll be sorted soon; I know there are issues with the picks over there that they’re trying to sort and I have sent a message to the helpdesk letting them know. But really, should I be concerned that I’m having fewer than normal comments? Have I become a comment junkie??!
Does anyone start up blogging in order to be terribly popular? I don’t think anyone ever really expects people to come along and comment, and start out with low expectations…
Does lots of comments = popularity and therefore must mean your blog is worthy?
Hrm, something for me to ponder on.
Of course those of you still managing to find me are very much welcomed and I’m not saying I don’t appreciate it 🙂
Ok, so I think it’s time to move on to some photos…
I don’t tend to show bird photos anymore, mainly because of my lens being broken and producing photos that look like a drunk had taken them…
Our birds have largely disappeared now – no doubt enjoying the natural food available, they will soon return in winter. And in fact, I’m enjoying the respite from the many birds we get throughout spring and summer. As an estimate we must have around 100 House Sparrows – I took one photo and there were 57 on it, and I know that there were more on the ground and often they fly in waves.
So when I mention I have lots of Sparrows… I mean, LOTS 😀
I’ve circled the birds for you; taken in August:
So far I’m loving my new lens… I’m amazed at the detail and clarity in the shots at hand-held, and I was stood down by the kitchen! That’s a good 20+metres away.
