WordPress.com has Freshly Pressed which feature blogs and flickr has Explore which features photographs. In both cases, no one has a clue how their blogs or photos get selected. In my first year at flickr, I had two photos selected. This year I have had three and I did not even know it until this week. Yep, a big old goose egg in between. We all want our photographs to be appreciated and being Explored is nice. Just as being Freshly Pressed is.
I applaud both WordPress.com and flickr for taking the effort to highlight bloggers and photographers. I often browse these services for inspiration and have found many new contacts along the way.
I am proud of the photos that were Explored. As I am of all the photos I choose to share with you. Have a great day!
