The Instagram Uprising is Just a Shot Across the Bow: Hello–Companies Are in this to Make Money

Here’s a warning that free services are not really free. You are paying for publicity, publication, storage, and more when you contribute anything online. Considering that these perks have real value, it is still worthwhile to post content of all sorts, but you should be aware that any of these sites can change their terms of service at any time. Be careful when posting recognizable photos of anyone, anywhere and think twice before using “free” cloud storage or exchange sites for potentially valuable original text. They might be okay, but I prefer external drives.

Use Zazzle to create original poetry trading cards or photo cards for your next poetry reading or for your writing club. Here are mine. You can change the pictures and poems to make them your own, or just use them for samples and create your own from scratch.

Zazzle does great work! I’d love to see a group of poets based there.
