For those reading this via RSS, you’ve probably noticed recently that the photos are posting twice. I just figured out why, I haven’t yet figured out the fix yet though.
The why is basically that at the end of each post I now include a box, within that box is html code that can be pasted into other web pages. Call this my version of marketing. It’s a viral approach. It’s probably also a slow approach.
Web browsers do dandy in recognizing this is a text box, what’s in here is text. Apparently RSS readers read what’s in there as they would any other code, if it’s not code it’s text, but as it’s code, specifically the code for the image link, they treat it as code and post the image, again.
I’m going to look into fixing it, but for right now, my apologies for this particular lack of smoothness.
So I’m working on a new thing, a thing to get more visitors. As some have probably noticed my images are now watermarked, they also link to my store so you can buy them in various forms. That’s all well and good, so now I need to get them seen more.
To that end, below this post, and all previous posts is a box that gives you the code to insert one of my images on another website or blog. Hopefully it’s easy to use and people do use it.
Don’t get me wrong here, I’m not a fan of copyright infringement, but I am fine with people using my images, sometimes even at no charge, as long as it’s done with my permission and my terms. This is a way to make my terms clear, and make it easy for people. I’m a believer that most people want to do the right thing, they just need to be given a way to do it, and I want to give people a way to share my images that benefits them and me.
Over time I’ll probably change the code a bit, I’m trying to figure out to get the code to make the link to my site the page which the image was viewed on and not the homepage, but that’s just more coding fun. I love my coding fun. But for now, it’s here, it works and let me know if it helps you.
I’ll have a number of images appearing shortly from Chicago Tap Theatre’s show “Tap Out Loud”. This is just one, a first one, I haven’t even seen 75% of the images yet.
This particular image is from the dance “LAB”, a tap and jazz dance hybrid from the world renowned choreographer Eddy Ocampo. Notice Laura has one tap shoe on, and a sock on the other foot.
More to come over the next days, weeks and months.
Erin said last night that I hadn’t posted this one yet, and she likes it. So welcome to today’s post.
