Photo swap prep

Ok, so tomorrow is the photo swap party and I wanted to talk about a few important things with you. 

First of all, I wanted to remind everyone to get your photo swap posts ready so you can link up tomorrow!!  So for one, this is a reminder to TAKE pictures today so you can post them and link them up!!

And secondly, I wanted to ask you a few things about the party rules.
I have been having this party for almost 14 weeks now, and I for one am having a blast taking and posting pictures.  {AND, I have literally spent HOURS and HOURS searching for photo bloggers of all types in hopes of finding some peeps like me who are wanting to swap pictures just for fun.  And I have invited everyone too.}

However, from the response I have gotten (or lack thereof) I am wondering what you all are thinking of the party.  Do you like it the way it is or would you be more likely to link up if I changed a few things? Hundreds of you know about the party now and have linked up a few times, but I can't seem to keep a steady stream of linkers (is that a word?) coming by to join.

Would it be easier if I asked for only one or two pics instead of 5-10?  Do some people think that only certain types of photographers are welcome at the party? (just so you know, ALL photographers are welcome).  Do you have a hard time taking pictures throughout your week?

Would it be more interesting if I changed things up a bit and asked for certain types of pictures such as pics of sunsets, pics of objects, pics of trees, weather, you name it.  You know, like a lot of the other photo parties do.  (The only reason I have done it my way is so that it would be easy for anyone to link up.) 

I would LOVE it if you would give me some feedback.  I am still trying to figure this blogger thing out, and I most certainly want to know if I am breaking some cardinal bloggy rules.  PLEASE let me know what you all think alright?

It would help me out a lot!!

And I really hope to see your pictures linked up here on Sunday!!!  Cuz' I wanna have fun!

I plan on linking up tomorrow :) But maybe it would be cool if you had a different "theme" for each week that you could post on Mondays or something? Either way I'm sure it will be a success :)

You mentioned that it needs to be a specific Photo swap post. I already as you know particapte in a linky on a Sunday but I could never do a separate post just for a photo swap post - it would have to be a joint one. Would that be allowed?

I love your photo swap!
I think it's also great that it's any kind of photo, that way it doesn't matter what I'm blogging about, as long as I have photos (I always do anyways), because I can always link up. :)

I love to post tons of photos on my own blog, but maybe if you changed it where we could post as many or as few as we want, it wouldn't be too hard for those that don't take very many. :)

I've been blogging for around 2ish years and I still don't know very much about blogging. Haha
I love your blog. :)
