kitsnaps: snow leopard  

Snow Leopard at Dublin Zoo

Snow Leopard at Dublin Zoo

Until this past month I’d never caught more than a glimpse of the snow leopards at Dublin Zoo. They’re very shy and usually hiding in their den, but the colder weather has, I guess, brought them out. They are *so* gorgeous, holy beans. I must go back and haunt the zoo some more before the weather warms up, because I’d love to get some more pictures.

Honestly, not all the Kitsnaps will be zoo pictures. It’s just they’re what I’ve got handy right now. Once I’ve got my act together I’m going to start reposting older stuff from the now-defunct Kitsnaps site, too, because, uh, I’m vain and want to show off. :)

Query (this is a test to see if anybody is reading this. or not. :)): should I publish Kitsnaps on the weekends, or just weekdays?

I wouldn't mind seeing pictures on the weekends, but I don't want to make more work for you. :)

It's not more work, really, since I can set these things to post in advance and they clearly cross-post successfully. So it's just a matter of setting up five or seven or whatever every few days to make sure they keep going. In fact, it's probably /easier/ to post on weekends, because then I don't have to pay attention to what days I'm setting. :)

Carry on then!

If I were religious, I'd say I follow your blogging religiously.

(Maybe I am, but not in the way most people mean.)

Aww, kitty...! (And so much more beautiful in big...)

Weekend pix would be dandy, if you have enough.

I have *easily* 365 photos in reserve, and it's also my hope that this will help encourage me to get out and take more!

when you feel like it!

Glutton-Eyes say: hourly

Abstemious-Brain says: If it's automated, there's a danger they'll dominate the blog unless you're also intending to religiously post other stuff every day, as well - which might be fine *at first*, but.. ;) So just weekends might be better :)
kitmizkit on February 8th, 2013 10:07 am (UTC)
Actually, the daily photo post is so I do at least have /something/ posted regularly. A thing to keep people coming back even if I miss blogging for a few days myself. :)

Yes there is huge merit to that :D :D

I suppose one of the advantages of keeping cemurphy and mizkit distinct, is that people looking for The Author can find authorly things first, then go on to discover the wider wonders/adventures of Kit. (Also possible on one combined site, I think :))
So probably I'm confusing content with structure :) And should be quiet :))

kitmizkit on February 8th, 2013 03:21 pm (UTC)
That's exactly the reason I've kept cemurphy.net and mizkit.com separate. The problem is that I never *update* cemurphy.net, or I do really well for a few weeks, then go months without doing it. So the goal here is to redirect cemurphy.net to a set of specifically tagged entries that are CE Murphy relevant, but which puts them on the larger mizkit.com site, allowing them to either stick with the CEMurphy-specific stuff, or go forth and see the Larger World Of Kit.

And I am highly intrigued by your email re: different page layout for Kitsnaps. I shall talk to you about that as, er, soon as I can. Said she who is typing around the two year old. :)

I read! But am in helpfully without opinion.

I am here on the weekends :)

Beautiful cat...
uninvitedcat on February 8th, 2013 01:48 pm (UTC)
I read daily, but at weekends I have more time to appreciate...!

Snow Leopards are some of my favorite big cats, so I wholeheartedly encourage you to stalk them keep going back to the zoo.

I say do whatever's easiest for you. No matter what, if you post photos, people will see them.
kitmizkit on February 8th, 2013 03:22 pm (UTC)
They're preposterously beautiful animals, snow leopards. I could watch them all day.

You should just publish them all the time. Several a day, in fact. :-)
kitmizkit on February 8th, 2013 03:22 pm (UTC)
*laughs* I have a lot of photos, but I'd run out fast if I did that. Besides, once a day creates an-ti-ci-pa-a--

Right? :)

I appreciate weekdays because I'm more likely to see them on a daily basis. (And of /course/ I'm reading!)

Man, I love the big white and black cats, like Sir Snow Leopard above or the white tigers. So pretty.

I love looking at piccies and also read your blog whenever it appears. As long as you're enjoying it - go for it!

I'm a serious snow leopard fan -- made my afternoon!

Gorgeous kitty!

One of my favorite things to do was go to the Lincoln Park Zoo when it was cold and/or snowing and see the cats and wolves be super active and excited. :)
Deborah Blakedeborahblakehps on February 9th, 2013 12:52 am (UTC)
Apparently your test worked. I'd say people are reading :-)

And, OMG, beautiful kitty!

My answer would be:


(Fat lot of help I am, I know....)
