I’m Always Late…

Filed under: Nonsensical/Randomness,Personal — chantal @ 2:46 pm

I try to be punctual in Life…try.  I’m usually successful too…sometimes even early.  But why am I always so late catching on to cool new things??  And they’re usually tech-related…I’m so out of it.  I was late getting on to the DVD bandwagon.  I was the last person I know to even get a cell phone.  I only just now got into digital photography and photoshop.  So it’s no surprise that I’m only now catching on to Flickr.

I actually signed up for my Flickr account last year.  I uploaded a few pictures, then forgot all about it.  The I started using it to store (as private) the images I would receive from the photographers I interviewed for my Photobloggers Exposed series.  But I just never got into the whole idea of group pools and uploading images that I was probably going to post to my photoblog anyway.  I didn’t see the point.  I still don’t, really.  It’s just another community-based thing that I have no time for.

But this weekend I got sucked in.  Two other projects I am involved in both are using Flickr to gather photos from the group.  So naturally, I started to check them out, clicked here, looked there…next thing I knew, it was 2 hours later and I had uploaded 20+ photos…and then I subscribed for the pro account.

Yeah…I’m addicted.

I still don’t totally ‘get’ the whole idea of Flickr…especially if you already have a photoblog, but it’s fun and I guess that’s the point.  And now I have one more thing to get sucked into when I’m procrastinating the real work I should be doing.

See my Flickr thing here.

  1. I use flickr in conjunction with my blog. You can set up Flickr to communicate straight to your blog.

    Take a look at mine and you can see what I’m talking about. I upload my photos to Flickr put in a caption, and then there’s a button that says “blog this” or somesuch which pops up a screen which allows you to write a post. And then the photo is automagically put on the blog with it’s caption and whatever post I wrote.

    I like it better than having using Blogger’s picture function, though wordpress may be better I’ve never tried it.

  2. Hey, Chantal. You’re not the only one! I have never even looked at Flickr. I only have so much time in a day! Also, as a software developer I’m tied to the computer all day, so I’m not that much interested in being tied to it all night, too! 🙂

  3. Flickr finally got to me too, and I’m now somewhat addicted. I spend far too much time than is healthy on there, just browsing to see what other people are up to. On the positive side, I’ve found a lot of inspiration and encouragement.
