  1. Thank you for sharing those resources. I am always leary of using anything that is not “mine” but someday I may want to.

  2. Hi Dani…yes, it’s a very informative posting…and I thought of another one too which I’ve used before called morguefile.com. Have you heard of that one? I’m trying to get back into the swing of things with my blog again…and visit my friends too! You’re one of them! :)

  3. i use creativecommons for everything now
    i know someone that was sued not too long back

  4. Lots of good information in your post. Thanks for sharing!
