Occasionally I get asked a question in the comments of my blog posts. Comments come into my e-mail and I enjoy answering questions and giving unsolicited advice. But if the the e-mail address of the commentor shows (firstname.lastname@example.org) after their name I cannot answer your question. I could answer it in the comments section of my post but how many people go back checking blog posts after already viewing them?
(much, much later)
Okay, so the intent behind this post was to show you how to have your e-mail address show so all we have to do is reply back directly to you. I planned on writing out the steps to be taken to do this and was trying to retrace these steps as I wrote it out...but I was having a heck of a time verifying what I thought was the proper procedure. I dug deeper into the "help" section and finally discovered Blogger changed this long ago for it was creating too many issues with people and their security. Ya can't put your e-mail address in there anymore! Grrrr....
So how do I answer questions? I don't know unless you are one of the few who are grandfathered in to having your e-mail address visible. Better think twice if you ever want to change that as there is no going back.
Anyway, what got me onto this was a couple comments asking about my little tripod and how I plan to mount the iPhone to it. Does my phone have a screw-in hole for a tripod? No. I made a holder for my phone using an adapter that came with my mono-pod. Maybe there is something out there one can buy to hold their phone onto a tripod but I haven't looked.
The V shaped thingy is to cradle a long lens in when using the mono-pod.
I bent the wire piece to hold the iPhone against the V piece.
The inspector approves.
