You have decided to write a story, poem, or share your photos or art through a story. You click on the create button, but what then?
What option do you use? We have several to choose from here on Virily.
Recently I was talking to a fellow member about the word limit, or rather word requirements.
One thing that would be helpful I think would put the minimum word requirement right were the explanation of each category is. Say for instance you have these categories when you choose to create: Put the word requirement on each tab.
Story (Mix text with images and embeds) (Minimum of 50 words) I have used this one a lot. I like this one, if I take you on a journey, like a hiking trip where I don’t want the pictures mixed up. I use this one if I want my pictures to stay in the order I put them.
Personality Quiz (What type of person are you?) Do the quizzes have a word limit? If so it should be listed here.
Trivia Quiz (What do you know about…?) I am not sure if there is a word limit on the trivia quizzes. I have made some quizzes but seem chatty enough not to even count words.
Open List (Everyone can submit new list items and vote up for the best submission)
Ranked List (Everyone can vote up for the best list item.) I like this one, I use it if I don’t care in what order the pictures are in.
Classic List (A list-based article) I guess each is numbered. I haven’t used this one.
Gallery (A collection of images) The word requirement for this one is 150 words I believe. For this reason I have not used it yet, but am trying it today on this post.
Embed (Facebook post, Twitter status, etc) This one was confusing for me. Not only is this for posting Facebook and Twitter statuses this is the way to post GIF Videos! ( I think) If so, this should be mentioned here.
Image (JPG, PNG or GIF) This one also requires 50 words. I think this should be lowered to 25.
So, which do you use? Have you tried them all? Why do you prefer to use ___ ?
This might be interesting to know, and we might learn more.
So here is my first post using the gallery!
I woke up yesterday morning to one of those sunrises. Fellow photogs know the ones. You take a thousand shots. Here are just a few below, straight out of the camera. I use a cheap point and shoot Fujifilm, but it does have 16 megapixels.
