I finally decided to link my Pinterest profile to my blog. I was hesitant because it’s my little cave that I gather things that I come across to either save for later or completely forget about. Danny has talked about the importance of building your online presence before which encouraged me to finally get on Twitter (not that I really get that- do people actually read tweets? There’s so much going on over there!).
I decided to add another social link after Lindsay asked me for my Pinterest info. I felt like I was giving away a secret since I never thought about linking it to my blog, it’s purely my personal account but what the heck! I don’t have anything to hide (embarrassed about, possibly… do I have to have an info-graphic on how to clean my house, probably not but you can see there’s a serious lack of motivation to clean over blog). If you want to see all of my project wish lists, home renovation inspiration, pictures of fitness that I’m hoping will get me to workout more and motivational quotes, then by all means check it out! It’s not that interesting as I’m quite a nerd but there are over 10k pins I’ve saved over the years so I’m sure you’ll find something of interest!
I forgot that I had a Flickr account. Something I remembered when looking for photos for my travel post today. I created it as a family photo blogging adventure. We have an old smart phone that we gave to my daughter to use as a camera.
The idea was to let her take pictures from her point of view when we went for little adventures for her to be able to look back and cherish that day from her point of view.
We were supposed to do that and update them to Flickr. We haven’t done that but there’s no time like the present, so once I get that together I’ll link that to my blog as a behind the scenes type bonus.
In light of my recent rant on blog etiquette (a post I didn’t expect to get as many views as it did! Quickly becoming one of my most read posts…disappointing and flattering at the same time) I created a little copyright type image. Not sure that it will do much, kind of like building a wall around your house and leaving the gate open, but I like the picture and I hope that it will at least make someone think twice about using someone else’s work. Not just mine but artists, creators and people in general, just because it’s online doesn’t mean it’s a free for all!
Here’s a glimpse at the “Creative Proprietor Rights” as I called it-
