I don’t like people asking me for photos from my blog and promising credit in exchange, so they could write about certain artists in their own blogs.
My blog is like any other website, I write about news, reviews apart from personal things, and taking these photos cost me time, effort and money and I’m not giving anything away for free anymore.
People should learn how to create their own content.
You don’t go to Inquirer or Star or whatever news site and email the paper or the author asking them if they could use the photos? I think people should start treating blogs who produce original content like that.
I do appreciate people asking before hand because I’m annoyed at bloggers who have stolen my photos in the past so they can create their own content. Thank you for asking, but in most cases I will say no.
If you’re going to create a blog then you must find ways to put original content in them. Be responsible for your own space. It’s your house on the net. You don’t let other people borrow stuff from your house, right?
