Talk of the Town #8 – How to Get Featured

Welcome back to Talk of the Town!

Before we look at this week’s wonderful features, here are a few little tips about how to get featured at Talk of the Town, and improve your blog at the same time.  We really want to feature you!

How to Get Featured at Talk of the Town (or any link party!)

As everyone knows a picture is worth a thousand words, and that’s so true for blog photography.

Make sure your photos are just as awesome as your project, recipe, or post is!

Here are few tips:

1 Make your photos larger.

Don’t make them mega large, but we frequently see great projects we’d love to feature, but the photos are just too small.

You are more likely to get featured if your photos are LARGER.

2 – Shoot in good light.

A cloudy day outdoors, or a well-lit spot indoors tend to make the best places to take photos.  Along that line, don’t use your flash.  It ruins otherwise great photos.

3 – Create a “scene”.

Dress up your photos with props that make your photo more interesting, but not too cluttered.

4  – Use a foam board as a backdrop.

A white foam boardmakes a crisp, bright background for small projects or recipes and instantly makes the photo POP!

If you’ve ever been frustrated that your link wasn’t chosen as a feature, we hope these few tips will help.  Now, on to the party! 🙂
