Sky Watch Friday


I've been seeing this meme all over the Blogosphere and had been thinking about giving it a try. Then when I was out yesterday I saw this old tower off in the distance, I knew I had to go take a picture of it! We haven't had too many blue sky days in Michigan lately and that made this extra special.


You can play this at Sky Watch Friday

Hi Barb!! Glad you joined in the Skywatch :) Is that a water tower?

Good shot - I'll be sure to come back and try the meme.

I love your water tower picture! I don't understand the linky you have there. I'm the originator of Sky Watch and recently gave it over to Tom at Wigger's World. He is the only one who should have the linky.

Hi Skittles
I love the tower against this Sky as it really dose make for a perfect Sky Watch picture.

I would be grateful if you just linked to Sky Watch or Wiggers World instead of putting a Mr. Linky here. Folk will find it confusing if two sites seem to be hosting Sky Watch.
I hope this dose not offend but I was a bit shocked to see it...

Tom

P.S.
I just wanted to say you are most welcome to Sky Watch.. and even though I have said this today we really are a nice bunch at Sky Watch.. ;o) Honest

good first entry

Mike said...

Who the hell says the originator can be the only one with linky on their blog. It's only a way of keeping track of who visits and lets others know who visits. Hah!!

Misty Dawn said...

I agree with Mike. While I love Sky Watch lots and bunches - I've noticed some things being overreacted on this week. No one is trying to steal Sky Watch. In fact, I see plain as day that the Sky Watch Friday link is right above the Mr. Linky here and the Sky Watch logo is right there at the top.

Mr. Linky is a service available to ALL bloggers. And, if you choose to pay for the upgraded service, you may put a Mr. Linky on each and every one of your posts if you want to.

In fact, there are some weekly memes that I participate it, where it is almost considered rude if you don't post Mr. Linky. If I were to post a WW or my HoT and not include the Mr Linky, I would feel bad and immediately edit the post to include it. Yet, if I WERE to post a Mr. Linky for my readers who visit my SWF, then I'M being offensive??? How is Barb (who hosts her own very successful meme in which the members utilize Mr. Linky) to know that she is going to offend someone or make them worry that she is out to steal the meme, when she uses a convenient sign-in which is used for numerous other memes?

I participate in three weekly memes on a regular basis. I post the Mr. Linky along with my weekly post for TWO out of three of those memes. The only reason I haven't posted Mr. Linky for Sky Watch is because I have not paid for (yet) the upgraded version. Otherwise, I would have been posting it - and I guess it would have been thought I was trying to host or steal SWF.

Mr. Linky is a consideration and a convenience provided for both the author and the reader. It is not intended to be used by only those who 'own' the meme.

I'm sorry - I'm sensing that, for some reason unknown to me, tensions and worries surrounding this meme are high this week... and I also seem to be feeling rather defensive this week of those whose intentions are completely clear to me. I really do love and look forward each week to participating in SWF, but I also feel very strongly about defending and supporting people when I see that they are being taken completely the wrong way. Therefore - I better just shut up now.
