We’re in desperate straits, people. DESPERATE STRAITS.
Due to my aversion to being sued for using permission-restricted images, I tried REALLY HARD to find the perfect public domain pics for today’s post. No dice. So I decided to make my own. Prepare yourselves, people. It’s not pretty. If you have small children, you may want to cover their eyes.
I had so much fun visiting blogs and friends a few weeks ago that I decided to do it again. And, you know, a visit can mean a lot of different things. Because I want no confusion on this issue, these are NOT the kinds of visits I’m talking about:
|No ghostly visitations of any kind|
Pathetic, right? It’s for this reason that I’ve decided to download add a bunch of my own pics to the WANA Commons group at Flickr. We writers have to stick together, so if you’re committed to doing the right thing when it comes to web images, check out these resources Angela shared on Monday, and consider sharing some of your pictures at Flickr. The more images we have to choose from, the less hand-drawn monstrosities we’ll have to endure.
