This week marks the three-year anniversary of 7 Quick Takes! The first time I wrote a post in the “quick takes” format I was just looking for a way to share a few informal thoughts that didn’t warrant entire posts to themselves. Three years and 144 Quick Takes posts later, it’s still one of my favorite blog post formats. I especially love it now that others have joined in, and we can all read one another’s posts each week.
To celebrate, I thought I’d give our little Friday carnival an upgrade! Starting tomorrow, you’ll notice the following changes:
- I upgraded the linky list to get one that includes an image from your post, and (hopefully) will be easier to use. This should help increase the number of clicks you get to your Quick Takes posts, so that you can gain new readers to your site.
- I’ve created a 7 Quick Takes post template that you can find here. Having a template really helps me create my posts quickly, so I thought it might be helpful to others as well. (Though you don’t have to use it — totally optional).
- I finally have a box with the image code for the 7 Quick Takes logo so that you can easily copy and paste it into your posts if you’d like to. You can find that at the bottom of this page. (Though you don’t need it if you use the post template; it’s already included in there.)
