Notes from Class Blog review:

Share photos on Flickr.

Tagging allows others to find photos and share them.

When using Flickr photos:

1. Link back to flickr (that's in their terms and conditions)
2. Add a credit line
3. Add Creative Commons license info

To grab a flickr photo:

On a flickr photo page, click 'share', copy the HTML embed code, then past into a blogger post while in 'Edit HTML' mode.

Duplicate the embded code, replace the IMG tag with the image title.

Like this example:

Full Moon Over Boston
Full Moon Over Boston by stevegarfield, on Flickr CC BY-NC-SA


If your video doesn't fit in the main section of your blog.



Go into blog settings. Click edit HTML. Make the width of the Header and Main Body tag wider.

Note, that's a video embedded on Mary Stackhouse's blog and she adjusted the blog during the class. Fixed!
