last week i was contacted by a magazine who wanted to use an emerald color board (from 2011) in their magazine! AHHHMAZING! there was one major problem - they wanted photo credits for the images i used on the board. AND fail. i didn't credit the photos i used on the guest post so they couldn't use the post in their feature. i want to say that i was new to blogging and pinterest and i didn't know how to find the original source for an image and cite it properly...but in the end i just didn't take the time to cite the images.
takeaway lesson for bloggers: treat your blog like an article, use some basic journalism
skills and site your sources and give credit to the photographers and artists who deserve it. if that means you can't use an image then move on and find another one.
