Taking The Time To Think Before Clicking Submit

I think there is a time in everyone’s lives when you regret having said something. This could be because you were angry or because you were so caught up in the excitement of the moment that you let something slip out that was better left unsaid.

While this is true in the real world it should never happen in the online world because when online you have the time to step back from any given situation before writing a post, commenting on another bloggers post or even when replying to a comment left on your blog. The repercussions of not doing this can be seen on my In Defence Of A Bloggers Right To Review A Product where the blogger concerned did a lot of damage to his reputation, so much so that many people said they would never deal with him again.

I would like for you to take a moment from your busy schedule to watch this video as  it highlights the point I am trying to make. This video clip shows how not taking the time to think before speaking can lead to some very dire consequences.

Cool huh? So let that be a warning to you as you float around the blogosphere, think twice, or even three times before clicking on the submit button, because once you’ve done that it very hard to take it back.

Even though I have an ‘About‘ Page I reckon there would be a fair few people who have never bothered to look at it and so they wouldn’t know that apart from some other blogs I also have two photo blogs, Scenic Adelaide and Photo2Blog as well as  Top Sexual Aids blog which is just starting to pick up steam. This post has nothing to do with SEX, I just thought I would give it a little plug, and all to do with the right things to do with a photo blog.

I’ve seen a fair few photo blogs that have some fantastic photos but very little traffic and there is a very good reason for this. All the blogger has done is paste the photo with little or no dialogue to support it. One thing you have to remember is that the Googlebots don’t have an eye for photos at all, so unless you write something about the photo they’re never going to find it.

Let’s take the following example;

waterfallgully

It’s a nice enough photo but those damn Googlebots aren’t going to pick it up at all so it will never get indexed unless you write something about it. Googlebots aside you really should give your visitors some information about the photo as they more than likely want to know something about it.

That particular waterfall is known as First Falls and it can be found at Waterfall Gully which is a suburb of Burnside. The falls itself is part of the Cleland Conservation Park and is about 15-20 mins from where I live.

It really is a lovely spot, one where you can take long walks along the tracks or even stop in for a bite to eat at the Waterfall Gully Restaurant which is only metres away from the falls itself.

Unfortunately it’s not open all the time. Last I looked it’s open Thursday to Monday 11.00am – 5.30pm and Friday evenings but bookings on that night is essential.

Of the two Photo Blogs Scenic Adelaide gets a hell of a lot more search engine traffic and that’s probably because the subject matter involves places of interests rather than photos of flowers and stuff. As can be seen from Cool Blog Links it rates in the top 10 blogs.

Speaking of Cool Blog Links, Google has seen fit to give it a PR3 on the last PR update so if your the kind who’s interested in increasing your PR you may even consider joining and get some of that link juice.

Sorry about that, I got a little sidetracked with some self promotion :innocent1_tb: Let’s get back to the photos shall we. I know that there are some of you who are thinking that you’re wrotten photographers, well guess what, so am I. The thing is today’s digital point and shoot cameras are so good it’s not all that hard to take a good photo. That and the fact that you can take virtually hundreds of photos using different angles and perspectives means that your bound to get a few really good shots.

The fact that you can post it straight onto you blog means that there aren’t any development costs. Another thing to remember is that every photo can be a story unto itself and so they can make great filler posts when you’re stuck for something to write.

Reality TV And How It Is Corrupting Society

I don’t know about you guys but I dislike reality TV shows, I could almost go so far as to say that I hate reality TV shows. Although it’s existed for quite awhile it probably didn’t really take off until Big Brother aired in 1999, and I am ashamed to admit that I actually watched that, and was amused by it, the first time around. I can’t explain it, more likely than not I was sucked in by the pleasurable looks emitted by the rest of the family.

Now reality TV is all but taking over all programming space available. We have Survivor, The Biggest Loser which is about a bunch of people trying to lose weight when in reality the biggest losers are the morons watching it. Let’s not even go into Dancing With The Stars, which ain’t half bad if you like perving at scantily clad women, The Apprentice, Fear Factor and the list goes on, and on and on.

I must admit when I heard that there was a tragic bus accident in California that involved a whole heap of sluts that were about to star in the new VH1 reality series The Road To Knoxville where 18 scantily clad women, no wonder they say sex sells, vie for the heart of stuntman Johnny Knoxville.

I was shocked when I saw the following clip and almost did not post it because it was so horrifying, but then thought that people had the right to know what was happening in the world around them. A word of warning to those who are offended by slutty behavior including tit flashing and the use of the F Bomb.

Oh, about the heading, it didn’t really have anything to do with the post, I just wanted to get your attention. Don’t forget to tweet this baby if you thought it made your day.
