I've spent the last hour (or 3) reading through this thread and taking notes and I just want to say THANK YOU so much for every one who has contributed. It has really helped, though I find the number of high standard blogs out there a bit daunting
Just one small question - I know the issue of which blogging platform to use has been mentioned frequently, but I have noticed the discussion seems to concentrate on Tumblr, WordPress, Blogger and Blogspot. Has anyone used OnSugar? - someone mentioned it months ago under a different name but I would love to know if anyone thinks this is a good platform.
I was drawn to it for two reasons:
1. The name I want for my blog is already in use on WordPress - on a dormant blog from 2009 (SO annoying by the way...)
2. OnSugar lets you use Getty Images and I really need these photos since I want to include posts about celebrity fashion.
Should I continue with OnSugar or should I try and find a way to use WordPress by buying the name AND finding a way to use Getty Images without infringing on copyright?
I'm a little confused about copyright laws and whether a blog is classes as non-commercial use but I don't think this is the right thread to discuss it in.
I don't wanna be nice. I think it's clever to swear
