Holy Bejeezus

Did you know "bajeezus" is an actual word with an actual definition? Yeah, I had to look it up. I wouldn't want to spell that one wrong (you can spell it b-e-j-e-s-u-s too but I really think it has more a a "zzz" to it myself).

Anyway, lets get to the bajeezeusness that has giving me something to brag blog about.

Flickr is one of those sights I check daily. Well, okay... several times a day. I started getting random people favoriting(not actually a word) one of my latest photos. I thought it was odd, but didn't think much of it. I went back again later on in the day and there were a few more random people that had made it their favorite. I knew something was up, but wasn't exactly sure what it was....

Then I noticed something on the right side of my Flickr homepage.

Flickr Y'all!

Do you see it?

Yep, that is my pattern photo thumbnail under the words "Flickr Blog." The one I just blogged about the other day. Now, if you're not on Flickr and not interested in photography... this might seem like no big deal, but for me it is.

I myself check out the Flickr Blog every day. Its great exposure for those who have a photo in it! It pretty much means lots of comments and favorites. Yippe! All the stuff I like. Not to mention my little ol' picture shows up on everyone's Flickr homepage for the day!!!

It was the first photo on the actual post.

Flickr Y'all!

My stats went up dramatically.

Flickr Y'all!
For some reason the time zone is messed up.

Anyway. I just had to post a little celebration post for myself. Wooo! I hope you don't mind.

This is almost as awesome as being listed as "Blog of Note."

And, let me take this moment to recommend Flickr. I've been using it for a few years now, and I love it. It's a great site for posting and even storing some of your photos. You can sign up for free, up to 200 photos, but if you want to do more and post more, it is a paid service (worth it in my opinion)!


  1. yay!! celebrate!! :))

    ya know...i never really spent any time checking out flickr...i've just always used picassa...

    maybe i'll have to MAKE some time...

    by the way...the leaf on grid...soooo cool...LOVE it!

  2. Crikey, very modern very American but interesting. Good luck to you.

  3. Good for you Erika! It's always nice when your work is admired and appreciated. Judging by some of your photos, I would expect that more of them will become noticed as well. Great job!

  4. Very cool! That's great that you were moved to the top. Congrats!

  5. I noticed that too! At first I thought they had moved my contacts, but then I realized they were featuring it. Awesome!

  6. Wow! That is too cool! Congrats on getting your photo featured on the Flickr blog.
