Bonkalicious Goes Flickr

5 07 2009

After transferring over 18GB of photos to my external harddrive (to an already vast amount of older photos) – just so that I could add another 4GB from my new Nikon D90 – I decided it was time for a bit of show and tell. Considering and the Bonkalicious Blog (that’s where you’re at right now) are part of my zero cost internet marketing experiment, it fits in like a pearl in an oyster.

Of course, there will still be galleries on, and the best and bestesterest photos will always be found there. But there’s no escaping the power of Flickr, the ease at which people find and connect to you, and the fact that I have acquired yet another piece of prime ‘fake estate’ (my new name for online real estate).

So here it is, my shiny new Flickr account:

I was very disappointed to see Yahoo abusing its acquisition power by only allowing access through a Yahoo ID. I don’t use Yahoo services, and I don’t plan to. I have nothing against them, I just have a long and rather positive relationship with a certain other search & service provider (hint: misspell ‘goggle’). The registration process is just filled with so many clues to future spamming, information misuse, targeted advertising (where I don’t want to see it), and an abundance of ‘security questions’ which I have NEVER used.

But apart from that, I’m happy to share my photos with you. But don’t forget: the original galleries, photos, and bigger better sizes will still be hanging out at!

Originals are always better...and bigger
