Thinking of starting a blog or already writing one? Then whatever you do, buy this book, read it, and keep a copy handy.
Packed full of information (instead of having to hunt it down all over the internet), this handy book is jammed packed full of information not only for bloggers but for writers and budding photographers.
Chapter two had me scrambling into action for a whole day to ensure both my blog and I were safe. We’re talking downloading images or photos that don’t belong to us and using them without any permission on our blogs. We’re talking copyright infringement and the possibility of being sued by the legal owner of that image or photo. There are links to some rather scary true copyright infringement stories contained in the book. If they don’t get you to take action in checking and ensuring you’ve no copyright infringements on your blog, then probably only being sued will do the trick.
I ended up deleting lots of images from blog posts because I really had no idea if they were free to use or if they were only free for a limited period of time. Typing ‘Free Images’ into Google is no guarantee that you will be presented with images and photos that are actually free to use. It’s mentioned in the book that robots are checking the internet for copyright infringement 24 hours a day, seven days a week! It was like reading something from a science-fiction story. However, this happens to be fact, not fiction.
Terri Webster Schrandt has not only written this book extremely well but, better still, it’s in plain English and won’t have you wondering what on earth she is saying. The book contains lots of information on various internet sites where free images and photos for using on your blog can be found. She also explains where you can find various sites to create your own images as well as giving the reader excellent information about taking their own photos to use on blog posts. There are also some valuable blogging hints and tips which every blogger should take onboard.
I’ve heard the author is going to write a series of these books. I’m extremely happy to hear the news and can only highly recommend that you buy this book and take in every bit of information she has written. She could end up saving you a lot of money!
