In my last post for November, I lamented that I was running out of media space on my blog after 14 years of photo-heavy posts and wondered if I would have to end my blog, start a new one, or pay to continue. My long-time blogging buddy, Montucky, told me how you can link Flickr images to your blog and not use any media space. And, coincidentally, WordPress just made that even easier. I have had a Flickr account for a long time so I guess I can keep my little blog going for awhile. Thank you, Montucky. This is his blog.
So here are a few Christmas shots of the cats: Ferguson, Bouche, and Torti…
Easy peasy, I think. This is our outdoor Christmas tree. It’s plywood and, last year, my neighbor had it outside his house with a “FREE” sign on it. I grabbed it to use as a photo prop but that has never really happened. We decided to paint it and put some lights (and a couple cardinals and a hummingbird) on it for the season. We love it now and have gotten several comments on it. The neighbor’s wife also told me that he originally pulled it out of the Bed, Bath, and Beyond dumpster, haha. You can see that the outdoor cats like it, too. That is Tabby and Callie.
And now, for a few December yard birds…Rosy-faced Lovebirds enjoying a seed bell, a juvenile one finishing the bell off, a Verdin dining on an orange, Inca Doves on my neighbor’s garage waiting for me to put sunflower seed out, and a posing Anna’s Hummingbird, male. The bird in my leading photo is a Curve-billed Thrasher in a Winter Wonderland.
So it seems to work this way. You don’t even need a Flickr account…if you have photos posted on any other sites, you can just embed them by using the url…at least I think so. The only thing I can’t do now is make galleries or stacked photos…unless there is a way that I haven’t figured out yet. I also can’t control the placement of vertical photos but that’s no biggie. At any rate, it’s a great solution!!!!! I can keep blogging. It was really easy to do, too, so if you have this WordPress issue of limited space remaining, there is an easy workaround.
I hope we all have a Happy 2023!!!!!
