      Daily posts, big images that people like, engaging viewers in both the text of the posts and particularly in the comments, following others, being civil, and being featured on Freshly Pressed (https://discover.wordpress.com/).

      I might have slowly reached my current number over time, but being featured on Freshly Pressed with this post (https://exploratorius.us/2014/12/31/my-best-images-from-2014/) made them appear within just a few months.

      Posts and WordPress users that are featured are hand-picked by the WordPress staff, usually for a really special topic or post that catches their eye.

      Some worthy people are never featured, while others are featured multiple times. Some wait years for the honor, and others are awarded it within a few weeks or months of joining.

      I don’t know that there is any specific process or formula in order to be featured, other than observe the others that have been featured and see if you can rise to their level of effort.

    This is my first time living near the cherry blossoms and I was able to walk there and wander for as long as I wanted last week. They really are as good as advertised! Your photo is great; mine were OK but I wish I could have captured them even better.

      I was first exposed to the cherry blossoms here back in 1977 and have only missed seeing them a handful of times since then. The crowds have grown exponentially over the years, but I still try to make the time to visit because they’re so wonderful to experience.
