Friday Roundup

No, I’m not talking about weedkiller šŸ˜›

For a blog that is not even a week old, our blog stats are pretty darn good. On our best day we had 261 views come in. From my experience with blogs it usually takes weeks to months to get that number. And we will get more over the next couple of weeks since I have been leaving the link for this site on flickr whenever I use a photo from there and I have mentioned this project on a few sites. Feel free to link to the website.

And we must be getting bigger as I deleted the first three spambot spam comments today. Our presence has been detected out there in the blogosphere LOL.

Sandy is busy writing up some fact pages on mesh and everything you could possible want to know for this project. I don’t know where she finds the time as she is an incredibly busy lady.

Remember if there is any info you want to see on this blog, any questions you want answered or if you just want to say hi….. leave a comment! I am happy to find pics or hassle whoever I need to hassle [sweetly] to get the appropriate answers.

There’s a Making a Mosaic FAQ category on the right which allows you pull up all the technical info really easily.

I’ve happily been posting Aussie wildlife pics for the Inspiration section. I’ve fallen in love with Bundy the rescued wombat and Dave, the bearded dragon. If you click on the photos you will be taken to the original photos where I encourage you all to leave some feedback for the original photographer. The photos out there are amazing.

Have a terrific weekend folks!

Blog update

Well, I seem to have sorted out a few of the teething troubles that come when you set anything up. So now I need suggestions from all of you.One thing this blog can do is find photos of the animal that you may want to mosaic. As you can see, I’ve already found some photos of bearded dragons for someone. If you have problems with the design of your favourite beastie, I’m happy to try to find some photos that might help. I can’t necessarily do all posts as soon as I get the requests but I’m happy to do at least one daily.

There will be posts coming up this week on technical issues like mesh, adhesives and the like. So you have plenty of time to daydream about your design. Or stew about the technicalities ;). There are some amazing skills and an abundance of knowledge amongst those who have already decided to get involved with this project so don’t be shy about asking questions about anything to do with this project. Your question may bring up issues we haven’t yet thought of so we appreciate your input.

Questions, suggestions, advice – leave them here in the comments. If you accidentally put something in the wrong place I can move it. Don’t be scared to just say hello.Ā 

This project is going to be fun!Ā
