Take my insects–Please!

Ok, so as a followup on the whole copyright/flamewar/widget fiasco, I have created a new group on Flickr. It’s called:

Take my Insects! Please! 

I invite everyone to add photos they would like highlighted on my blog via my Flickr Widget–the box with the pretty photos in the upper left corner of the blog.  The widget displays a LINKED THUMBNAIL of your photo. It’s a great way to get more people to look at your work!

I’m setting up this group to make sure that absolutely everyone who has photos that appear on my blog is totally ok with that. I will use the RSS feed of the group’s photos, so I won’t be hosting your photo or any originals on my blog, nor will I use your photo in a post if it is marked as copyright protected.

While WordPress and Flickr both seem to feel that I am well within my legal rights to keep using the general RSS Insect feed on Flickr, I’d rather avoid future dramafests.

So–Friends, Romans, Countrymen! Lend me your bugs!
