I have not used Flickr in a long, long, long time - probably since the start of pinterest. But I did start using it when I redesigned my blog so that I could have a place to store my pictures and that way I could easily add links to my sidebar to bring you to specific works I was trying to share.
Now of course you can do this in pinterest and on facebook but I find nothing beats how nicely flickr displays the work in grids and sections and groupings. Take a look at this link for example where I am showing the types of kits I make for the members of my Monthly Paper kits - it is just displayed so beautifully. (If you want to know more about how my paper kit club works go directly to my Paper Kit Club page here)
Similarly I wanted to show paper items I make in general - take a look here.
The thing is that you can create albums to group your items and I love that and then from there you can go to the individual pictures on each album.
From the albums page Flickr automatically sets the grid display and I think they do it beautifully making some pictures large and some small . Look at my handmade journals album display here. It is just done so well.
So that's my shout out to the old days - when Flickr was in and Pinterest didn't even exist! So I will continue to populate my Flickr pages (and yes and my FB pages and my pinterest and so on and so on lol.)
Oh yes I also wanted to mention that I used to do a Friday Flick Favs post every Friday which was really popular. I couldn't find that feature anymore on flickr and am still trying to figure out how to do the same with Pinterest ... I know change is good !
Have a great, creative day
