Finally, the big picture post!

*This post will stay on top for the weekend so scroll down past this if you come back Saturday for the Stripper Story post ;)*

I am going to start this off again by saying I am seriously amazed at the amount of participation I got with the Big Picture Post. When I started this idea up, I expected 10 to maybe 15 people to play along with me and send me pictures. I thought if I got 25 or 30 pictures, that would be awesome. Then I thought 40 would be kick ass! Then when I got to 70, I was ecstatic because it was more than double what I had expected and hoped for. When I got to 100, I was amazed that people were sending me so many pictures to share. When I finished uploading the pictures last night, the grand total was 200 pictures! Granted, the last 17 are various pictures I submitted from my huge collection of stuff. That means 183 came from y'all! Most people sent more than one. Some sent 5, 7 and even 10 or more. I did not at all expect to get that much participation. I'm insanely thrilled that I did though.

My idea was to do a eclectic mix of things. So I asked for anything from trees, sunshine, lips, booze, boobs, pets, toys, rain, shoes, candy, random street signs, legs, bright colors, piercings, silly face shots, beaches and anything else y'all wanted to submit. I got quite a variety of things. Some are not safe for work but most of them are. Still, the not safe for work shots are rather racy so keep that in mind. ;)

Originally, when I thought I would get 40 pictures if I was lucky and begged enough, my plan was to post them here on the blog. I was really counting on getting 25 to 30 pictures so I figured it would be a rather image heavy post and thought it would be okay. When I hit 70, I thought a slide show would be a good idea. Then I could just work out something with all the links. Once I hit 150 though, I knew there was no fucking way I was doing a single blog post with that many pictures. Even if I broke it down into multiple posts and did 25 pictures for each one, it would still take me a long time and several posts to get everything displayed. So, I created a separate free Flickr account just specifically for this project. I started uploading and it took me several days to get the pictures uploaded. Then I had to wait to find out how to credit and link some people's pictures. Then more pictures came in. The last 5 people to submit pictures submitted them yesterday. I added them late last night and then I was finally done.

I created a set with all 200 pictures. Click here http://www.flickr.com/photos/amorousrocker28/sets/72157622402264702/ to see it. Now, the credit and link are in the picture description. This link will take you to the set start page. Click the pictures to make them bigger and the links will be clickable. Some people were more specific in how they wanted to be linked. If you want me to change how you are credited/linked, PLEASE E-MAIL me and let me know and I'll get to it when I have the chance.

Another way to view is to just go to my project photostream page. The pictures are bigger and you can read the descriptions and see who posted which picture. Clicking on the picture makes it bigger and also makes the credited link clickable. http://www.flickr.com/photos/amorousrocker28/

You DO NOT need to be signed in to Flickr and don't even need an account to view the pictures. So get to clicking and enjoy the picture show!

THANK YOU SO MUCH to each and every person who submitted a picture/pictures to me for my project. It was a cool idea, I had fun doing it and I'm quite happy with the participation I got. I'll totally be doing something like this again! Just not too soon, lol. ;)


The Blue-Eyed Vixen (gets her text in pink today, since she's such a fan of the color, lol) posted one of my pictures from yesterday's HNT up on her blog today for her Friday Favorites feature. Go check out what other pictures she chose to feature and find out what she liked about them.


The beautiful Amy at Sex, Chocolate and Red Lipstick decided to give me a blog award. So of course, I'll be playing along and passing it on to a few other awesome bloggers. I'll get to that Sunday or next week. Thanks Amy!

Happy Friday!
