Flickr is undoubtedly the most popular, if not the best online photo management and sharing application in the world. Yet – and it embarrasses me to admit this – I don’t get it. Specifically, I don’t understand how a nature blogger benefits from posting pics to Flickr that could be posted straight to one’s own blog. What am I missing?
I invite those of you who integrate Flickr into your online presence to explain its uses and benefits. For example, is Flickr a community unto itself or do you find admirers of your photos visiting your blog as well? Is it easier to add a photo to Flickr and link to it than to upload a photo right to your blog?
