Many photographers display watermarks — commonly known in the form of a visible marker such as text, a logo, or a signature — on photographs for various reasons, while others strongly prefer not to add them. Here, we’ve asked a handful of WordPress photographers their takes. You’ll read a mix of opinions from bloggers who take pictures for different reasons, their various experiences and methods, and links to other sources of information.

Like other roundups on The Daily Post that compile the best practices of bloggers, our goal is not to tell you what’s “right” or “wrong,” but to present a range of perspectives so you…

Beautiful day :)

Standard

Today so far has been a wonderful day. The kids (big and small 🙂 ) are all in great moods and I feel amazing. It’s been a few days since I actually felt good. I think the weather cleared all of the pollen and pollution out of the air and has settled a bit and all of my weather pains have gone away. I’m sitting here looking at a beautiful sunny day and thinking how lucky I am. Sometimes in the hustle and bustle of life we forget what it means to be grateful. Sometimes we have to slow down and look around to see what is there in front of us. Today is that day for me 🙂  I am thankful for my family. I am thankful for my health and my family’s health. I am thankful I have a roof over my head. I am thankful I am here.

Hobbies….something to do…

Standard

Well as I have posted before I do knitting as a hobby and I’m getting pretty good at it…or maybe that’s just my thinking…lol!! SO I decided to pick up something I have done in passing and even get my kids involved with it as well. Photography!! I have posted pics in the past and I know I am no pro and to be honest I’m not really trying to become a pro. I just enjoy taking photos, fixing them and showing them to whoever will look at them. (sorry everyone 😛 )  But all that aside, I want to show my kids how beautiful the world is through their own eyes. I think we forget how amazing our world is. So here I am, being the idealistic mom who wants to show her kids everything that is possible…haha!!  Who knows….they might enjoy it more than me…

Now for blatant self promotion…I have a few places I have posted my photos. Have a look 🙂

My new hobby…Knitting

Standard

Well maybe not new… I’ve been doing it for about 6 months now. I’ve been practicing and now I can say I actually have got somewhere with it. It actually is relaxing. As long as you don’t drop a stitch and have to start again (which I have done a lot). I thought it might be an interesting thing to pick up and I am glad I did. I will post a couple of things I have made once I’ve got a chance and will post things as I make them too. So here is to new challenges!!!
