Unfortunately, it kind of is these days. I am not sure when it started, but suddenly you couldn't apply to blog for stores/events any more without having 500+ views on EVERY photo. That led to a lot of people adding everyone on Flickr just to get views, or reposting their photos 2-3 times to gather more views.

Now personally, I don't look at Flickr as much as I used to since now I have all these people I'm following. Which sounds weird, but it's true. I can no longer keep up. So I read blogs. I especially read bloggers who choose to do more than just pics and credits. But that's a personal choice and I realize I'm in the minority these days with that choice.

Flickr is a brilliant resource for Second Life users of all types, creators, bloggers, explorers etc.

However, do tread carefully, especially if you're a business, or you could fall foul of Flickr's TOS.

ou can't apply unless you have 500 views on every picture? I'm a failure as a Flickr'r, such shame as a fashionista. ;-)

I'm with you, "Ch'now", I prefer blogs with words and paragraphs and stuff. An outfit tells a story.

But I have been uploading photos to flickr more than blogging.

I do both WP blog & Flickr. Flickr is kinda the easy way out, just post a picture and wow! soon you get lots of views & favs. in comparison my blog takes a lot more effort but there's a lot less views. It's all relative I guess.
