Flickr Plugin!

I’m not going to lie, I’m pretty proud of myself. I started a Flickr account (easy peasy), and figured out a plugin that would display my flickr photos on my sidebar ALL BY MYSELF. No help from Meg Mc or Ivania this time 🙂 I uploaded three photos on my flickr account to test it out, and HOORAY, success! I’m looking forward to the next two weeks’ assignment–it should be pretty cool!

For anyone needs any help with the Flickr plugin, here you go:

I picked the “Quick Flickr Widget” plugin. It was really easy to use, once I figured everything out. After activating the plugin, go to “Appearance” (on the sidebar of your dashboard), and click on “Widgets”.  There you can find “Quick Flickr”, which you can drag and drop into your sidebar.  Then, just plug in your Flickr screenname and pick your preferences. Click save, add some photos to your Flickr account to test it out (make sure that they are “public” and not “private” on Flickr, otherwise they won’t show up on your blog), and it should all be there! Easy peasy and super cool!

I also set up my twitter to tweet my new photos on flickr and tested that out. Super easy.

I’m starting to get the hang of the internet.

    That was helpful! I had been dragging my heels about integrating my twitter into my flickr account, but your post inspired me! Also- the pictures in your sidebar are beautiful!
