Starting a New Blog
« on: January 20, 2014, 09:33:07 AM »
Hi, all! For the last month or so, I've been working on starting a new blog and I think it's just about all finished being setup. However, before I start making a lot of posts in it I have a quick question. The blog I've started is an arts/crafts/handmade blog and I just wanted to ask:  is everyone alright if I post pics of their work on my blog? I just don't want to post anyone's pics without making sure I have their permission first. (All such posts will, of course, include your shop link, name, etc.) If anyone's interested, the blog I'm working on is called Think Art Loud.

I'm sure most would love to be featured!  If not, they will be super quick to contact you with a nasty email (get a few of those every so often even with credit and a link!)  Enjoy and can't wait to see the blog.

Thanks, everyone!

Oh, yes, Monika. She's serious. I know some on other forums that are likely to message anyone that posts their images without asking first. Technically, posting someone else's pics without permission can be seen as a violation of copyright. Which is one reason I prefer to ask first (besides the fact that it's just plain courteous to ask).

First, yeah!!!!!for doing a wordpress site. That of course was the first thing I looked for. You will never outgrow the platform and can transform it into anything you want as you go.
Second I wouldn't have any issues at all of course. You know we have your back with whatever you choose to do.

Thanks everyone! :)

Andrew, quick question for you about using wordpress (this is my first time using them so I'm still finding some of it confusing/frustrating).  How do you track how many subscribers you have? Right now, I'm using Feedburner, but it is soooooo inaccurate (one day it told me 38 the next it was down to 12; apparently it only shows you the number of subscribers that were online/checking your feed from the last 24hours and not the total number of people that have subscribed to your feed).

I really do not pay much attention to subscribers, I do have feed burner on at least one of my blogs, never check it though. You can self host a subscriber plugin on your site if you want and not go through feed burner http://wordpress.org/plugins/tags/subscriber up to you.

Congrats on the new blog Narrina! The name is awesome! A new blog is on my plate of things to do, but I am just not that motivated right now. As for your offer, you are more than welcome to use any picture of mine that you like.  Keep us updated!
