Flickr, it’s being dubbed as the photosharing revolution. If you haven’t used it – you don’t know what you’re missing!
Okay so if I haven’t mentioned it to some of you yet – I’m pretty hooked on flickr. Everyone knows I LOVE to take photos – so this is perfect for me to be able to share photos with you all. I’m still wondering why I never tried Flickr earlier. I’m in the process of organizing and uploading photos as far back as when Hope was itty bitty, as well as some of her “art” and recent pictures too. Anytime you want to see photos from us you can check out that link…I’ll be updating it regularly. Sometimes every day, sometimes every few days – or longer – it all depends on my schedule and what we’re doing. So you can bookmark it – it’s not changing.
So if you’ve seen the photos on flickr…my next question is – have you joined? I’m surprised how many of my family and friends don’t know of it or don’t use it or both. I guess being so intertwined with web design it seems like everyone around me (industry wise) is using it…but no family or friends. Which is a shame. It’s absolutely free to join. Flickr is affiliated with yahoo and they have a great reputation. If you have a yahoo account your one step closer because it uses yahoo logins. If you join you can start sharing photos, commenting, as well as printing from online or creating other cool things like books, calendars, posters, or dvd’s – All from flickr! You can also upload pictures as “public” or “private”. Now, if you get hooked like I did you’ll find they have a lot of great features and benefits to upgrading to their pro membership which is really inexpensive – what put me over the edge to upgrade was the ability to add even more photos and to get really organized by using sets.

Anyhow, hope to see you flickr’ing soon! If you join be sure to let me know so I can add you as a contact. I imagine in time I might start making some of these photos private for only friends and family to see.
