Share Your Photos on Self-Storage Talk

By John Carlisle Comments
Posted in Blogs

Self-Storage Talk, the official online forum of Inside Self-Storage, is already full of great discussions. From time-sensitive legal and management questions to fun and unbelievable stories, people seem to have the knack for writing text posts. But as trite as the saying "A picture is worth a thousand words" may be, it's true. Self-Storage Talk is a great outlet for people to share photos and images.

That's why we're starting the Official Self-Storage Talk Photo Thread. Every so often, something funny or "cool-looking" happens at a facility. It could be a rainbow on the horizon or deer drinking from the creek behind the property. It could be people milling around at one of your customer appreciation events, or perhaps it's your office decked out for the holidays.

Whatever the occasion, there are many photo-worthy moments in self-storage, and it would be great if we could start sharing them here on the forum more often. Posting photos on SST is easy and can be done in a couple of different ways. I've made a post explaining the ins and outs of photo-posting if you want a quick how-to.

There are the two key "rules" for the photo thread:

1.) Every photo must contain part of your facility in it. It doesn't have to be anything that specifically identifies the name of the facility (we understand you want to protect your privacy), but it should be obvious the event is occurring at the facility or in an office.

2.) All photos, like text posts, must adhere to the site rules.

We'll start this as just one thread for now, but I can envision it blossoming into its own forum. Who knows, with enough participation, maybe we could start selecting "Photo of the Month" in the e-newsletter.

Let's see those photos and start making SST a more visual—not just a verbal—community. To post anything on the forum, you must have a registered username, but if you haven't signed up yet, don't worry. Registration is free and takes only a few minutes.
