On The Horns

I'm conflicted about the use of the Pictobrowser now. I love the look of it and I feel very fancy using it but I realized today that if you look at them here and don't click through then you miss all the comments I made on Flickr. On the one hand I don't get as many hits on Flickr (in theory) but on the other hand people who read here and are disinclined to click through will see more of my photography. So pretty, as I said, but it means that you don't know the story behind that wonderful young woman smiling with the crown and you don't know about that Neopolitan mix and why I don't have a headshot of him or why Dyn-o-MITE is Dynamite or any of the other tiny stories I came across on Saturday. I don't know how I feel about it or if it matters how I feel about it. Surely I could just mix it up, link sometimes and Pictobrowse sometimes, right?

How do you feel about it?


  1. I like the comments on Flickr. Honestly, I didn't go to the other site to look at the pictures yet. I'm a busy girl.

  2. Okay, first of all? And I can't believe I need to tell you this, but it ABSOLUTELY matters how you feel about it. Sheesh.

    Since Auntie's 'fessing up, I will, too; I very rarely click through on links. I, too, am a busy girl (especially lately) and unless I need the information to make sense of the post, I usually try to glean the content from context. It bugs the crap out of Gerry that I'm almost never on his Flickr site, but the truth of the matter is that I'm almost never on ANYONE'S Flickr site (my own included). I'll read your (the metaphorical "your," but yours specifically, too) every day, but most days, that's all I've got time for...

  3. That's supposed to be "I'll read your BLOGS every day." I confused myself with my parenthetical.
