Here’s what I promise to you:
Usage Etiquette Policy
After a lot of thought and input from other bloggers and crafters, I have put together a policy on how I will deal with using other people’s photos. Most of the time, the photo will be used for a RoundUp on the blog.
For these purposes, I will download a single image from the tutorial in question that best shows off the project. I may crop it to fit the space I need. I will link directly to the tutorial that I am talking about and will also indicate who created it- this most likely will be the name of the blog, but might also include the name of the crafter.
Once the post goes live, I will try my best to locate an email address for the crafter and let them know that I’ve featured their article or post. If I can’t find an email address, I will leave a comment on that post with the information.
In return for allowing me to feature your article, post or tutorial on my site, I have a little button for you to post on your blog if you wish. It might not mean anything much right now, but hopefully in the future, being featured on MOTM will be really awesome! You’ll find the button to the right.
This is a For Profit Blog.
Sometimes I will use affiliate links in my posts or even have sponsors in the sidebar that are related to my posts or site. I will never ever link to a product or store that I don’t love. Each item or store I would or have used myself or I have or would shop there.
