I blog for enjoyment. While I write science fiction for authorship; I blog to work on my craft, to enlighten others, and to exchange ideas in a format that is inclusive of all civil discourse.
Some of the pictures I post, I have taken, some I have gleaned from the internet, from one place or another.
Please keep in mind that I have no pecuniary interest in this blog, and make no money from it what-so-ever. Most of this blog is a public service, as I do offer much free advice in the IT arena; I have been at it professionally since 1982.
I would like to think from the numerous e-mails and comments that most of you find it entertaining, and some of the blogs are meant for just that.
Occasionally, someone will search their picture and find that I have posted it. Most of the time I get a message from them telling me that they are glad that I liked it enough to use it, and are surprised how it gets around. Much like the pictures on Pinterest are re-posted by the thousands.
If the owner of the photo would like, I will actually give them credit for it in the subtext, as I have done with many pictures, as I would like to give credit where credit is due. I also do that with text that I have copied from other places in the footnotes. If you write it, you should get the credit. I will even post a link to where I found it for others to follow, if they so choose. If they have a © by it of course, I will honor that and not copy it. I may still post a link to it if I reference it but, I honor the copy write as I would hope others would honor mine.
Pictures add to the blog I think, in that it breaks up the text, and a lot of folks are visual in nature.
Having said that, if you find something on my blog that is yours, and you would prefer that I not use it, just let me know and I will happily remove it. While I do make an effort to use pictures that are not marked with a ©, I understand ownership and intellectual property etc.
