If you would like to feature a post or project,
That is awesome. YOU are awesome. THANK YOU!
You don’t have to get permission, but I would love it if you let me know! It is a huge compliment, and I’d like to thank you and promote you on social media. Ya know, get you more followers and views. 🙂
I ask that you take only one photo along with a short description.
Since Pinterest came along, I waterwark all of my photos for protection. Please don’t crop it out, that’s being sneaky. If you would like an unwatermarked photo, please email me at amheasley (at) gmail (dot) com and I can send you one.
My posts and tutorials, however, live on my blog.
Sorry, that’s the way it goes. If you violate this, I will email you and ask you to either a.) amend it, or b.) take it down.
There’s a reason for this other than me being a jerk.
If you take my content, you are stealing my traffic and that’s not cool. That’s how I feed my family! Well, kinda. Don’t deprive my kids of milk. And maybe some apples.
Also, both of us could be penalized by google for having duplicate content on our sites. And we don’t want that, do we? I’d like to stay in Google’s good graces and I’m sure you do too.
If you make a project of mine, I’d love it if you blogged about it!
After all, I’m in the business of sharing and trying to get people to make my projects!
Here’s what I ask (and why)
- take your own pictures (see above)
- do not copy my tutorial word for word (see above)
- link back to me: whiteblackshutters.com, white house black shutters, Ann Marie, http://whitehouseblackshutters.com, any of these work as long as they are clickable
- let me know so I can promote you! And get you more readers and views!
No one cares if you are inspired and not a genius who came up with something. We’re all inspired by something! But they do care if you are a copy cat. Get some free views and likes out of it, do the right thing and link back, and I will help you out. 🙂
one last thing
(picture this in my serious voice)
If you steal pictures of my kids, I will hunt you down.
There are people out there who think it is fun to pretend that my kids are their own and that my life is their own. I don’t know why. If you do this, I will find you and ask you to stop. If you don’t listen, or if you are just being a major creep, I will skip that step.
I have lawyers in the family, I’m Italian, I don’t mess around. Cement shoes. I know people. Please refrain from being a jackass in this department. Or else.
