How to participate in Monday Windows

Windows are all around us, windows to look into, windows to look out of. This challenge is to look AT windows, photograph interesting ones and share the images. You can either post new photos of windows or dig some out of your archives.

You may show one photo or more. You may wish to tell about the window. Include as much, or as little, text as you like. Your topic can be windows of any kind, not just windows in houses and buildings.

You may post weekly or whenever you wish – no need to feel compelled to follow a schedule.

► You may place a link to your Monday Window post in the comments of the current post on this site.

►Use the post tag Monday Window – in social media use the hashtag #MondayWindow 

►Use the category Monday Window or Windows – this will allow you to present just your Monday Window posts to visitors to your site. You may submit your category link to this site to be included in the sidebar.

The WordPress Reader can show recent post that are tagged Monday Window. Link to this address wordpress.com/tag/monday-window

If the Monday Window bug bites you …

There is more you can do to add to your enjoyment and that of your readers and followers. Mark your Monday Window post with the category Monday Window. Categories are powerful ways to manage posts on your own site. While tags can be tracked throughout the blogosphere, well the WordPress.com community, categories work just on your own site.

Add a category item to your navigation menu. You can see mine here, it is labeled My Monday Window posts. You need not do anything more. WordPress generates a page on the fly when someone clicks that menu item and populates the page with your posts.

You do not have to add the category to your menu, it still works. If I discover that you are using the Monday Window category, I will add a link in the sidebar to your category page (WordPress generates that page when invoked). See the sidebar and try the links.

If you are using the Monday Window category and your page is not shown in the sidebar, get in touch and let me know, I will gladly add you to the list.
