Looks very good. It's hard to get used to the blog format after using flickr for so long. I really like flickr's capability of checking back for activity on comments that you've made. But, it's definitely well worth having your own website. Any advertising income possibilities?

I'm not used to the lack of ability to put comment boxes on photos. LOL

Reviving the thread but changing the topic...

I checked my F-mail at 3am and found this missive:

We would like to ask permission to use this photo (frozen Himalayan cedar) to include in a site called “PortoCompasso”. This site, which is in construction, is about the Culture and Tourism of Oporto City. The site has been being developed by the Association “Porto Digital”, with the support of POSC – Operational Plan of Knowledge Societies (European Union Funds). We assure that we will use the photo just for this aim.

I mailed my consent back, adding that I wasn't sure how a photo of a tree in Tacoma, Washington, USA fit in with promoting tourism in Oporto City, Portugal.

How strange. I've had a few requests like that, but they were photos that were directly related. It's nice to get your photos out there, but at some point I may have to ask for something in return, especially if it is one of my favorite shots.

I told someone about the request and they said "I'd ask for a thousand dollars." Hadn't really occurred to me to request renumeration, especially since this IS a tourist venture so money is being generated by the place using my picture (even if it's not going directly to that site's makers).

I just had one used on a bike tour company flyer. For some reason I thought it was just a nonprofit group of people trying to get others in the bike trip, but it was actually a commercial company. Oh well, I got a few free flyers out of there and a photo credit.

$1k is a bit much to ask for. They can just ask someone else who might give it to them for free. Or, a microstock photo agency can provide one for less than $40. Who knows, though. Maybe you are the only one out there with a photo of that tree.

I'm a believer in word-of-mouth advertisement and "the first dose is free", plus I am still hung up on the concept of using an American image in a tourist site for a Portuguese city. :)
