Is it a popularity thing on here sometimes, well yes of course it is, but isn’t everything really. But I can say I don’t know the algorithym, but I do know that no matter what Michal came up with someone would have a good old bitch about it, lol. He will never make everybody happy, and I am sure it is probably as fair as it can be as I know it is much fairer than it used to be. I suggest for those who want to be seen more on here that you take more time on here to interact, all other social media things work the same way. You can’t get seen on fb if you are not posting or commenting and here is no different. Don’t get to caught up on the top 3 thing either we should be sharing on here cause we want to share our work with our peers, anything beyond that is just a bonus. I also told you all my tips a longtime ago about how to get more visibility when posting so if you can’t remember I will add it into the forum as a post so as it is always there.
So for me cakesdecor is home, I love the members and the vibe I get here most of the time. Yes it gets a bit crappy when collaborations come out and you have posted a great cake and it gets over looked, but just take that as a challenge to make another killer cake. Collaborations need to be more kind and not just comment on their collab partners cakes, take the time and recognize others as well, we all work hard so be fair, and kind, don’t all try to hog the spot light. On the flip side of that I know members get a little ticked sometimes at the collabs but usually the pieces are amazing, that is just the truth of it, so don’t not comment cause you have your knickers in a twist cause you were not invited or you posted right before the collab came out. Brilliant pieces should still get love, collab or not.
And finally if you post a cake take a few minutes to look around at the other cakes that have posted also and show them some love as well. Don’t just post your cake and think then that everyone should love it and comment on it when you are not prepared to do the same thing for others. We are all in this community together, let’s embrace each other instead of all trying to do one better than the next guy. Remember everyone on here is at a different skill level or amount of time they have been doing cakes so the newbies need just as much love if not more than those of us that have been doing it longer.
So here’s my challenge to you all take 5 minutes every day just to leave a few comments on a few different members you may not know. Let’s see if we can make this the site I know it can be. Remember a site is only as good as the members make it. Big hugs, Shags
