Picture me. Now, picture me a little taller and a little skinnier. Good. Now, picture me doing a happy dance. Oh, yeah....
That was me last night! I was going through my emails and I saw that I had gotten one from a contact on Flickr. Checking it out, I discovered that she had captured a screen shot from Flickr and saved it for me. Here's what I found:
My First Front Page
My Original Post
Wow. Okay, so how Flickr works is they have an "Explore" page where computer-generated algorithms select random uploaded pictures to feature. The Front Page is where a very small selection of these "Explored" pictures are featured.
In other words, a broader audience gets to see my image and more traffic is drawn to my photostream.
Will it change anything for me? Not really. I may get some new people watching my photo uploads on a daily basis. That's cool. I'll get to ride the high of Front Page status for a day or two. Who wouldn't want that?
Otherwise, it's back to business with more pictures!
