Second year in a row for my first photo of the year to be in Explore. Post yours here, too...

New Year's bicycle lesson {1/365} (Explored)
Bokeh - 002/365 - 2nd January 2014

My second photo of the 365, this came a day after a photo I uploaded (not for 365) was in Explore - my first in nearly 6 years! - the day before.
I've yet to get any in explore, well done! Any of you have any suggestions for getting explored?
There's so much information out there about how to get explored but the truth is that there's no hard and fast rules. My photo from the back end of last year is now at 13,000+ views and 350+ favourites compared with one back in 2007 that had just three comments and a handful of favourites. It's bizarre and seems to have nothing to do with quality. I think I've read that things that affect your changes are:

- How many groups you submit to
- Avoiding flashing, blingy awards
- Comments / faves etc

No evidence to support this but I'd also guess that there's some bias about 'friends' vs non-friends commenting and favouriting your photo. Search around and there's lots of theories and even some groups dedicated to it. I've found over my time doing 365's that a lot of 365ers tend to get into explore, maybe it's something to do with frequency of uploads too? Who knows?

One more in there for Day 3.

Tips: no more than five groups, lots of tags. Also, be in this group!

I've got another in Explore. They love me in the first week of the year. I expect to be ignored for months after this!

I'll be danged if this one didn't slip by me. I had none of the usual hub-bub, but nevertheless, I checked and sure enough. Yay!
