TW's Lame Excuse

TW's Lame Excuse

I'm sure several of you are surprised to see an art foto leading off the Friday Foto Frenzy. Not quite as surprised as I was when I opened Mudpie's pick of #488 and saw it. TW does have an explanation. This better be good, Woman! 

TW: Years ago when I started resizing fotos for your blog, I'd either throw out the ones that were terribly out of focus or turn them into art. Most of the time I kept the original but apparently I didn't keep this one.

CK: So there you have TW's lame excuse. Of course we know the real reason was that TW goofed when she was saving it and overwrote the original. This closeup was so blurry, even the art is blurry! I guess that camera didn't come with a mackerel lens for closeups. I was laying in my blue mauve thing when TW decided she wanted some closeups. Trust me, you don't want to see the other two that for some reason didn't get turned into art.

TW's Lame Excuse

#1101 was one of three fotos taken on my perch, which used to go by the name of Nicky's "gym" for some unknown to me reason. It's a hand-me-down but it certainly isn't an exercise center. That fabulous Phoebe from 15 and Meowing chose it. This overhead foto of me sleeping looks like I'm doing a Muslim prayer session but, trust me, I'm sound asleep. I worship only myself. Heh heh.

TW's Lame Excuse

Flynn decided to pick a fairly recent foto and I thank him. TW had me pose ad nauseum with some raffle tickets she found on Pop's desk. She thought they'd come in handy one day in a blog post and she was right for once. #5432 wound up one of the outtakes in the blog promoting the All Ears for Bootsie auction. Interestingly enough, it didn't make the cut on the final blog post. Anyone want to buy a coupon and bid on The Cat?

I've been looking at my "numbers" and I don't like what I'm seeing so in a panic move I'm considering changing the days I post. Right now I'm posting on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. I'm thinking of not posting on Fridays. I've been posting the Foto Frenzy feature but blog traffic is terrible on Friday and I dunno if it's worth my effort to post if no one sees it. If I can figure out how to do it, I'm gonna do a poll to see what you guys want to see. If you're tired of Foto Frenzy, even though it's a fun post for me and I get to post fotos that don't really fit any other post, I'll discontinue it. If you wanna see them, I'll post on random days if we decide to dump Friday.

So here's your chance to mouth off at The Kitteh. What days are better for you: Monday, Wednesday and Friday or Tuesday and Thursday?

I think the top photo almost looks like it's 3D - maybe you should just hand out glasses for people to look at it.

Any day you want to post is a good day for me, CK!

Fridays do seem less traffic-y. I like the foto frenzy and if you like doing it then I say go for it. But I know how it is. I started posting a little less often too. I like your coupon picture!

I'm the wrong person to ask as I'm blogging less but the pros say, less is more. It's a complete waste to blog 7 days a week.

We always enjoy the foto frenzy CK but we will go where your flow takes us!

Actually for me, my blog traffic is better on Fridays than Saturdays...in my opinion, on the weekend people have better things to do than read blogs. I also am going to be blogging less, have already begun to. I only shoot for 3 days a week on both of my blogs (Dakota's usually ends up even less). I just got a part time job (different than the one I originally mentioned on Facebook), and I am not going to have a ton of time to blog or visit blogs every day. I stopped drinking the "blogging kool-aid", that we can make a ton of money blogging..........oh yeah, some do....those who have written successful books, or who do TONS of non-blogging writing on the side.....but the vast majority make poop. We are in a bad place financially and I can no longer wait for the blogs to make enough money. How was THAT for a tangent???? My advice to any blogger who is thinking of quitting ANY job in order to blog more? KEEP WORKING on the outside.......catchatwithcarenandcody

We enjoy your foto frenzy posts! AS far as days that are better for us, well it's Mom. Some days in her life as just better than others, so it just depends on her frame of mind. We always check out your posts even if we fail to comment.

The Menagerie Mom said...

We always love your posts, CK, including the Foto Frenzies. But, we'll understand and accept whatever decision you make, and we'll visit you no matter what!

Some days I don't have time to visit as many blogs as I'd like to, and in turn I know what you mean about having quiet days. I actually tend to get a fair amount of traffic on Fridays and the weekend, but I also do blog hops on all three of those days, so perhaps that makes sense.

Anyway, we want you to do whatever works best for you, CK, and we'll just go along with it and continue having fun reading your blog. You're always a riot, and we love that! Purrs!

I enjoy your photo frenzy CK. I mostly only visits on days I post now and Friday is one of them for Eric. We don't get as many visitors on that day but we put it down to being repeat posts.

We luv seein' your fotos CK. Our visitin' has been down cuz of all da crap goin' on here. We's finally startin' to get back into da swing of things, so maybe dat's what's been goin' on with others too. Our nummers have been down as well. In da end, ya' gotta do what ya' gotta do. Hopefully we'll get back into a runtt soon and see ya' more.

Luv ya'

We enjoy your Foto Frenzy, and if it's any consolation, Fridays usually are very slow with us too. Much more traffic on Saturday and Sunday. I love that you only worship yourself...always worship at the altar of cat is my motto!

The Island Cats said...

We love your Foto Frenzy posts, CK. We don't get a lot of traffic on Fridays and we think weekends are even less. But we don't worry about the numbers. We post what we want when we want to...and hope people will stop by when they can.

We would read your post every day so whatever you pick, we will read. Phoebe thanks you for choosing her photo. We like the art one, that was a surprise. Have a nice quiet 4th!

I think Foto Frenzy is fun! But if you want to cut back, perhaps it could be a monthly Foto Frenzy instead of weekly? I'm such a newbie that all my numbers are low and can't really offer anything of substance on that.

Kitties Blue said...

Our comments are off too. We think it is just what happens when summer gets going. People can find lots of other things to do. We've been lax in commenting because of mom's gallivanting. We like photo frenzy and will follow it even if it isn't on Friday. Mom does that same thing sometimes and saves over the top of the original. We do like that arty photo.

We like photo frenzy whenever its convenient for you and TW. Summer is a busy time for us so we don't get a chance to drop in on everyone we would like to. We try but real life does get in the way of socializing. Hope you understand.

We love your Foto Frenzies, CK, but you gotta do what you gotta do. Maybe people are busy doing other stuff, because it's summer? If you DO decide not to post on Fridays, we hope you figure out a way to still do your Foto Frenzies, even if it's on random days.
