What, Which, Why, and How Long?


I’ve been debating with myself about doing this challenge. The only thing keeping me from it is wondering if I can say anything fresh. I don’t think I’ve said anything fresh on this blog for probably two years, so it’s hard to think I’ll do it now. But maybe I’ll talk myself into taking a crack at it. In the meantime, I’m looking forward to reading others’ thoughts about it. And thank you Guylty for something to ponder.

If You Can’t Lick ‘Em, Join ‘Em

Sharing is a fairly new business model, and it’s one that takes some outfits awhile to embrace. Guylty has a very significant post at her blog about Getty Images finally coming around to the 21st century in its thinking. They have changed their policy about the availability of their images. And for this blogger, it’s very welcome news.

I have had Getty Images go through my entire blog on two occasions in the last four years. The first time was early in the life of this blog. The second time was just a few months ago, which I talked about as a potential pitfall of blogging. The good news is I didn’t infringe. But if I even thought about it over the years, I had only to remember that once over I received early on to know I was not going to do something that even came close.

This was easy. Thank you, Guytly for the heads up!
