Want to get the most out of
the Meet Me in the Middle Project?
- Start taking your “Before & After” pictures now. It would be great to get some of your pictures taken ahead of time—when you see the perfect opportunity, have the best light, and feel inspired. Of course you can do it at the last minute too, but things like the bad lighting at 10 o’clock at night can be pretty unforgiving.
- You don’t have to be fancy. Got a messy kitchen that is driving you crazy? Take your Before pics, then start cleaning those dishes and filing that paperwork. Don’t forget to get the After pics too, before it gets messy again!
- Take multiple pics—when you go to put them together in a collage you will be glad to have more options.
- Plan your camera aspect based on where you plan to share your picture. Two square aspects on top of each other make a great Pinterest image. Either two “photo” aspects or two square aspects can be used to make your collage for Instagram. Take a look at the posts on our homepage to see some examples of different ways you can put images together in collages.
- Don’t forget to use the edit feature to label your image! We like using both (1) the words “Before & After” and (2) the hashtag #MeetMeintheMiddleProj to make sure that others recognize the images as part of this project.
- Be sure to also include the hashtag #MeetMeintheMiddleProj in the text of your Instagram post or your Pinterest Pin’s description.Hashtags don’t really make difference in your blog post text, but if you are sharing the image or post on FaceBook, be sure to include #MeetMeintheMiddleProj in your FB post.
- It is easier to read if you capitalize the first letters of the main words like this: #MeetMeintheMiddleProj. Compare that to using all lowercase, like this: #meetmeinthemiddleproj
- On the other hand, Pinterest and Instagram don’t care about whether or not you capitalize within your hashtags.
- Use the hashtag #MeetMeintheMiddleProj to search for other curators on Instagram and Pinterest (or even FaceBook). Be sweet, follow them! Remember this is about building community and making the Lord’s Name great!
- You will also find other curators here at the weekly linky party—it is proper etiquette to visit/comment/like at least two other images when you link your up.
