I have a confession; I have fallen completely out of love with linkys. They have lost their lustre for me. I do a bit of an eyeroll when I see yet another one launched. When I think there can’t possibly be any subject left uncovered, up pops another.
Don’t get me wrong, I think a linky with authenticity behind it is a wonderful thing. A linky where the owner is genuinely passionate about the subject matter and is collating entries for the benefit of others is fab. And that benefit isn’t just driving traffic in a one-way exchange.
For here is what I really dislike about linkys now; they’ve become a bit of a dumping ground. Link up and bugger off. Move on to the next linky. No heart in it.
Where has the passion gone? Where has the community gone?
I guess the old days have gone now (yes I know I’m showing my blogging age). But I love my Photo Gallery linky. Love it. Loved watching people grow and change and get excited about how their photography improved and matured.
And I just find it harder and harder to love it as much as I used to. My baby. For the Photo Gallery really has been my bloggy baby over the years. And I’m not sure how I feel about her any more.
I could wake up tomorrow and be ‘what the HELL was I talking about’ and find a renewed vigour, so pretend this all didn’t happen, right?!
So for now, here is the new theme for this week’s Photo Gallery is: Where I Live.
As usual, interpret the theme any way you like but make sure you share a little bit of what you love about your neck of the woods, as they say!
I’ll see you back here on Wednesday when it’s time to link up x
NEW HERE? NOT SURE HOW TO ENTER THE GALLERY?
If you’re new here, here’s a post to tell you all about what The Photo Gallery is all about and how to enter.
And if you want to make sure you don’t miss any prompts or entries in future, make sure you subscribe to the Sticky Fingers blog and get all prompts delivered directly to your in box.
Go on, clicky click away, you know you want to …
If you want to join in with The Gallery and showcase your photos, come back on Wednesday and when my Gallery post goes live, add a link to your post on the Linky below mine.
The link stays open until the following Tuesday, so you have plenty of time to join in.
And ANYONE can join in.
