In my last post, I was a little snippy about my current survey of blog readers and how many people had or hadn’t yet taken it. I even threatened to convert this blog into nothing but photos of milkweed seeds until we reached 1,000 survey responses. Today, I stand before you, (sitting at my dining room table in a t-shirt and athletic shorts) to admit that I was bluffing.
At the same time, I also want to prove that I could have done it. Doubt me? This post includes 25 milkweed seed photos that I’ve taken JUST THIS MONTH. Also, those 25 make up maybe half of the milkweed seed shots I’ve taken (so far) this month. I’ve been taking photos for about 30 years and milkweed seeds have been a favorite subject of mine. You can do your own math on how many milkweed seed photos I might have in my library.
However, we all need to move forward and I don’t want to drag out my scolding belligerence any longer. I’m going to close the survey tonight before I go to bed. That gives you all about 12 or 13 hours from when this is posted to take the survey if you haven’t. If you miss out, you’ll lose the opportunity to share such scintillating information as where you’re from, what aspects of the blog you like best, and what your favorite thing about robber flies is. (That last question may or may not be the final question of the survey – the only way you’ll know is to take the survey.)
Last Chance – click HERE to take the survey. And, seriously, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading this blog and for taking the survey if you do.
Hey. Did you just count the photos to see if there were actually 25? There weren’t, were there? There were 26! HaHA! I lied to you but in the opposite way you thought I might! Also, what are you doing with your life that counting milkweed seed photos is important to you? (I’m just kidding about that last part – I’m completely down with counting milkweed seeds, in photos or real life or both. Live your life, you crazy wonderful petunia!) Also take the survey!
