|Come and get me, Copper!|
I am going through a cleaning process on The Multiverse.
A rather well-known agent/blogger (Kristin Nelson) had a guest blogger post about an issue she has been dealing with in regards to a picture she had used in a blog post.

Another prominent Kristen (of the Lamb variety) also posted on her Facebook about this: http://www.facebook.com/WeAreNotAloneMyWANA
Kristen Lamb has set up a neat "share" group for writers to swap pics on her WANA pages that you might want to check into and SIGN up for.
So.... long story short, though I never intentionally set out to use pictures illegally, I will be removing ANY pictures that I am not CERTAIN I have rights to.
My suggestion to you would be to do the same.
And not just on your blog, but, if you are like me, a writer who hopes to garner
Just a thought.
In the future, all my posts will be decorated only with pics that I own. So get ready for lots of Plotters and Romy and Culver pics!
And that's a GOOD thing!
Oh, and another thing... if you have any blogs out there that you've forgotten about that still exist but you never update... better check those too or maybe just shut them down. Cause I bet they can still come back and bite your ass.
