The new CAPTURE THE NATURE CIRCLE –– Announcement Post | READ IT ALL Before You Ask For Inclusion
#CircleSharingForThePeopleCNC (Do NOT tag images with this hashtag!)
It's time again! One of my many popular circles is about to be filled by you! By now everybody knows that I have emptied all shared circles in order to bring some more freshness and interestingness into them again –– the same with this fourth edition of my very popular Capture The Circle. That means that the CNC will be all new, fresh & hot as well, and you will have an excellent way of promoting yourself and find new interesting nature photographers via this interesting circle.
AGAIN: READ the WHOLE post BEFORE you ask for inclusion, please.
What is the CNC?
It is a circle for photographers that mainly photograph the nature and mainly share their original work in their feeds. Whether you're a happy amateur or a pro doesn't really matter, as long as you really like photography and nature photography. So… I welcome you to join the rest of us and meet new people with the same interest as yourself; great nature photography and social interaction.
I will share this circle with everybody on Monday, November 19.
What must YOU do?
As with all my circles, there are no free rides. Here are the rules (steps you must take) to get accepted (no inclusion guarantees given):
1) –– Plus AND reshare this post. Why? It's very simple: if you want to get promoted in this circle, you must be prepared to promote your fellow photographer as well. Do NOT remove this reshared post from your feed immediately after I have added you to the circle. Doing so will get you banned from all my future circle shares (=blocked).
2) –– Make sure that you do NOT post a lot of YouTube clips, animated GIF's, blog post teasers etc. in your feed. I don't mind a few reshares of other people's work (that's what Google+ is all about) but you must mainly share your own original work on your page. I want ths circle to be as clean as possible and focus on great nature photography –– not other bling-bling.
3) –– Ask for inclusion in the comments (must be in this post, not the one you reshare) and please state what kind of nature photography you are into *and that you HAVE completed all steps*. I will check every feed but I won't check twice. Do not add links to Google+ albums, external websites etc. in the comments. If you do, your comment will be deleted.
Have something to say about my circles? Wanna know what others gained from being in the circles? Then go here: https://plus.google.com/116219534929662479848/posts/7Evg2rSE2Hv
NOTE! If you see that I have plussed your comment, then you know that I have added you to the circle. I didn't PLUS your comment? Make sure that you have reshared this announcement post publicly (and not just to one of your circles) and let me know that you did so.
This announcement post is hash-tagged with #CircleSharingForThePeopleCNC so that you may mute the reshares this post will generate. That way you will avoid seeing multiple copies of this post in your feed and your adrenaline level will stay normal. I will add a new hash-tag for every announcement and circle post in the future. That way you won't miss out on any of the action but still can mute all the duplicate reshares.
Here is an excellent add-on that will help you to mute the reshares: http://code.google.com/p/nonplus/
