Two helpful tips on what not to do with your blog

So, a little over a month ago I posted a few pictures of flower buds and challenged people to guess what they would turn out to be when they opened.

Oops. It didn’t turn out as planned. So, now that I’ve goofed big-time, I think I’ll set myself up as a blogging expert and tell the rest of you what to avoid. Ahem.

1)Ā Ā  If you have a two-part post in mind, make sure you have both parts ready before you publish the first one. Otherwise, well, you might find yourself with a pair of pictures like these:

(Yes, that’s the same flower. Really. The only difference is a week or two of time passing.)

2) Ā  Oh, and you might want to avoid publishing Part One and then vanishing for a month.

So, with apologies, here’s the followup to my June 1 post.

And the teaser – no, it’s not a rosebud.

If you look at the backgrounds, you can see that the leaves are the same shape for this red peony bud as for the pink peony buds. The main difference? That red coloring shows up in the stalks as well as the flowers.
