Collaborating with a photographer for your blog
I had a poem published on Every Day Poets today and rather than just providing a link to the webpage on my blog, I decided to look for a photograph that might illustrate it. The poem was about Carlingford Lough in Warrenpoint, where I grew up, so I went to a website called the Old Warrenpoint Forum and found a lovely photo. I wrote my blog page, included the pic, named the photographer and saved a draft. I emailed him from the Forum, intending to upload the post when I'd received his permission to use it. He replied within an hour!
Here is the result...
Of course, if you take good pics yourself, you don't have to do this, but it might be a way of doubling up visits to your blog since several sites are involved.Happy days! :)
