New Stuff

So did you all notice the big changes I made? I added a description to the header! I know, such a drastic change will take a little while to get used to, but I'm sure you'll all be fine.

But in all seriousness the main thing I added was a new tag for captions, *portfolio. I remember back when I was just starting to visit tg blogs I would spend a lot of time going through each one to see what the style of the captions was, what themes were common, what kind of images were used, etc. I know a lot of people don't have that kind of time, so they just look at the first few captions and move on.

In order to make it easier for visitors to find the good stuff, I decided to create a specific tag to show off what I believe to be the best, or at least most representative examples of my work. Hopefully this will allow newcomers the ability to quickly see if they want to continue to explore what all I've posted.

This is where I'd like a little help from all of you. Leave a comment about what captions you think I should include. Was there a specific one that made you want to keep coming back? I've already put in my picks, but I doubt I'm the best judge of my work.

I want to limit the number of caps I include to no more than 10%. So right now, I can tag one more, or I can remove some of my picks to make room for what you all actually like.

And one quick thing about the Monday update. I'm currently working on the longest series I've ever done, so I doubt I'll be finished with it in time for tomorrow. So most likely you'll be seeing some of my old stuff for Monday, and this new series on Wednesday.

I really want to make this new tag work, so if you have a favorite, please let me know.


  1. I have but one question: how did you put the star rating bar on your posts? I can't seem to find it.

  2. Go to the Design page of your blog and click the edit button for Blog Posts. When the edit window opens look three boxes below where you typed in your reaction options (or just below the "Show Share Buttons" box) there is a box labeled "Show Star Ratings." Click that box and hit save.

  3. hey rauk! luv your stuff! just wondering how do i send a picture or story idea to you?
