It is corn season here.
I can get 5 cobs for $5

I waited a long time for the hose to be finished I kinda gave up waiting.

Here is the art for the top I cut out a while back.

Mr Grub,

You always were very good at taking non-spoiling photos, that still manage to intrigue! I am simply on the edge of my seat!

I like your blog, selected, but don't visit as often as I should!

I like the gradual reveal photos as well, and the truly stunning craftsmanship. Grin

Don't give up, grub!
I looked, but the blog showed empty  "to me" ....
so I waited for your update here.

it is the difference between the "push"  and the "pull" model.
I go to my fav forums, and like to see updates "pushed " there.
rather than having to visit links and fiddle until I can find and "pull" the stuff.
that part gets me rather frustrated.

In the days when I was advertising Steampunk ware, I used Twitter a lot. I noticed that I always got more attention if the pictures could be embedded so they showed up on the feed without having the reader actually have to click on a link.

The way Twitter worked back then (maybe it still does), only the most popular tweets wpuld be seen for a given hashtag (topic). And only a few image servers or websites were allowed to embed pictures directly into the Tweet, as useually that involved Twitter using their own servers to store the images - so only a few companies like Deviantart, Etsy, eCrater.com or YouTube would actually be allowed to embed their pictures/movies. Instagram at one point did too, but they got into a spat with Twitter and at some point Twitter removed Instagram's embedding privileges. All other websites and image servers could only be accessed by way of a hyperlink. So you had to click a link to see a picture.

So what you say? Well, I did some research to see if there was any difference between the number of clicks a Tweet would get, directing the user to my business website. Using the counter in my website and the counter in Etsy, I started to study whether an Instagram -linked Tweet were poorer than a DeviantArt or an Etsy link.

The results were surprising. For those Instagram liked Tweets, the rate of hits was about 1/10 the number of hits I'd get with Esty or eCrater.

So yes. an extra effort on the part of a user to click a link will lose you about 90% of your hit rate. Lesson learned.
