Here's how much time is left until training camp closes:


Welcome to Blog Olympics Training Camp #3.

A blogger's guide to blogging

There is an interesting quote in the article above from Nancy Vonk:

"It is becoming common to use graphics; text blogs are so six months ago. Eye candy takes more time and effort, but pays off in increased viewership."

How many pictures have you posted on your blog this month. Count all pictures posted 3/1/2006 until 3/14/2006. Do not count today (3/15/2006 or tomorrow 3/16/2006) in your answer. Count only pictures in your main posting area, not the sidebars or header.

I counted 26 pictures on my blog in March, not counting the picture of the Irish setter I posted this morning. I did count all the buttons in my main posting area as pictures, like this one here:

Post your score in the comments. Use this format:

26 pictures

If Blogger doesn't cooperate and let you add a comment, please email your answer to me. Be sure to nclude a link to your blog so I know who you are. I will add all the answers I get via email to the comments when the problems clear (knock on wood). Here is my email address: blm@rochester.rr.com

If you are having trouble accessing your blog let me know, I will consider extending the deadline.

The higher your number, the better chance you have at winning.

The top 10% of entering blogs (those with the most pictures) will win a gold blog button.

The bottom 10% of entering blogs (those with the least pictures) will win a bronze blog button.

All other blogs participating in this camp will win a silver blog button.

Your comment must be posted by 10:00 PM EST, Thursday, March 16, 2006. Please check the comment of the person posting before you for accuracy.

Good luck and thank you for participating.
