You Know Who You Are

Catherine Ryan Hyde

The pet method. Very popular.A few days ago, I made the switch from a More Puppy to More Kitty blog meme. I knew I had more kitty pictures coming from readers.  There had been promises made...well, you know how it goes.  Yes, I know you all have lives.  I have one, too.  I know how things get forgotten.

So I posted this simple message on Twitter and Facebook.  "Those of you who promised me kitty pics...you know who you are. Just saying." Hardly-in-the-photo-at-all method.

Holy cow.  Did I get kitty pics!  They knew who they were.

Trying this tactic again.  Remember the My Fabulous Readers slideshow?  If not, maybe go check it out.  I finished the first slideshow and plunged straight into the second, collecting about 20% of what I need.  And then your life went on, and so did mine.  And I forgot to remind you, and you forgot to remember.  Well, a vacation from reader slideshows is okay. But...guess what?  Vacation's over.

The behind-the-book method.Here goes.  Those of you who promised me reader photos...you know who you are.  Just saying.The photo-photo method. Clever.

And another thing I know (or at least can guess) about you.  I know some of what may be holding you back.  Lots of people, myself included, don't feel very photogenic, and avoid the "wrong" end of a camera.  So I'm posting several examples of how some of my very clever readers very cleverly got around that.  

You're out of excuses.  And you know who you are.  

Let's get this second one going.  The first one was fun.  Everybody who got involved seemed to enjoy it.  I'm ready.  Hit me with photos.  ryanhyde at cryanhyde dot com.
