WFMW-Making posting pictures easier.

One of the tips on having a successful blog lies, apparently, is putting pictures in your posts.  I try to include one in each post I write.  Sometimes I consider throwing something in there that doesn’t even go along so make sure one is included, but haven’t sunk that low yet.

I have a great camera.  A DSLR that I adore, but it’s not that portable.  It’s too expensive and fragile to just leave in the car or tote around waiting for a photo opportunity to present itself, but I do want to make sure I’m capturing day to day things.

I begged and pleaded convinced Big Daddy to get me an iPhone a few weeks ago and it really takes pretty good pictures for a phone.  That solved my camera toting problem, but I still had a problem on how to easily get the pictures from my phone to my blog.  The answer?

Flickr.com allows you to send pictures via e-mail and into your account.    I know  I’m probably the last person on the planet to figure that out, but I thought that there HAD to be someone else who didn’t know too.  It’s super easy.  Simply access your Flickr.com account and under the “your account” settings chooe the “e-mail” tab.  You’ll then see the unique e-mail address that will allow you to send pictures from your phone into your photo stream.  Voila!  Simple!

You will have to take my word for it that I took and uploaded this picture while writing this post, but as you can see it is spontaneous as you can see the evidence of an oatmeal hair dunking on Littlebit and who would stage something like that?
