Where do I post this request to get it in front of the most eyes?

When you post pictures of your beautiful and hard-wrought projects, it is helpful for the viewer if you include three basic dimensions—length, width (depth) and height.

Often these pictures are taken with a neutral background—sheet, or continuous paper—and there’s nothing there for reference so we can get a sense of the scale of the piece.

Numbers would be nice!

I have thought about that as well. That is the reason I have included other items in the pictures for scale reference. For example, my last 2 blog entries, I include one of my daughters in one and my self in the other.

Here’s an idea how to get people to look at your blog. Blog HEADLINE in caps – DIMENSIONS NEEDED 36-24-36.
