I’ve seen more than a few posts recently from bloggers who claim to have run out of ideas for stories.
In order to keep the blogosphere running as it should (because I’m just so wonderful), I’m making an unusual offer today:
Below is a small collection of my photos, some of which have been used here and some of which haven’t, but all are Creative Commons licensed. Every blogger, everywhere, is invited – for free! – to use any one (or more) of these photos as the basis for a blog post (or posts). All I ask is that you link back to my site, both through the post and through the photo itself, and do not use any photo for any commercial purpose without my permission. (If you’re getting paid for it, I want some of that.)
(If you don’t know how to set the photo to automatically link back here, email me at email@example.com, and I will be happy to walk you through it. Lord knows I need the exposure.)
“View Through the Window”
“Shy Little Duck”
“Pond on a Cloudy Day”
Go for it, people! If there’s enough response, I may possibly consider making this a regular feature of my blog (“Foto Fest” perhaps?). Just think: excellent photography to inspire your own creative work. Who can ask for anything more?
(And it would give me something to do with my time, and a reason to get my ass out and actually photograph something.)
Waiting to hear from you …
(BTW, you can also use the photo at the top of this post (“Decorative Grass”), or any photo you find on my Flickr.com or YouPic.com sites. Please do!)
I love to hear from my readers. You may comment on this post, comment on my Facebook or Twitter pages, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
