We Want Images!
We want images on the front page! We need you to assign one of your post-images as the featured image. Then all is good. Else you’ll be featured text-only.
*Note: As this is a wordpress.com housed blog, we don’t have unlimited space. Please keep your image-uploads at a reasonable filesize.
We Want Tags!
Please tag your posts according to subject, processes, materials used, thoughts, feelings, .. This will make it easier to find similar items.
Your User Profile!
If you click directly on a little gravatar icon, it’ll show all the posts this user has contributed. If you hoover over the gravatar, it’ll show more and you can go to the user’s profile on gravatar.com. Share more information about yourself, upload your own image, etc. – either through WordPress>Dashboard>Users>MyProfile or on gravatar.com.
