Over two years ago I posted a little note about two little seashells that I had photographed for use in my Seashell store. That one little post now gets hundreds of views a day and I don’t know why. Unfortunately, even though I have updated it (and greatly improved the writing over what I had thrown together back then), it’s not very noteworthy. It bothers me that many people are coming to my blog via that post, and it’s not that good!
I can’t figure out why it gets the majority of views. My original tags have been changed to fewer and more appropriate ones, since I didn’t know much about tagging back then. As I’ve said the short post itself was unimpressive and not all that well written. I’ve tried to expand upon the two shells that are featured, but I honestly don’t know that much about them. I’ve never understood why all the visits, but the numbers just keep rising.
The shells in this picture are the ones I used for the original post in 2009. I’ve also spilled my secret to photographing my shells far from any nice, beach sand. I use granulated sugar to simulate the white sand found on the Gulf coast of Florida.
