Sooo....Now What?

If you've read the buzz going around, you might know about the issue with photos. I'm going to state here and now, I messed up. Yes. I've been posting photos for Suit Up Sunday and Tasty Tuesday because I thought getting them from Google was okay. It's not. Because of that, Tasty Tuesday and Suit Up Sunday will cease to exist. Stinks because those were fun to post. Fun, but I also look at it this way, stealing photos - which by the letter of the law it was - is like stealing my books. Okay, I'm not stealing my books, but pirates are. I don't want people asking me for books 'to review' only to have them send them to pirate sites because they didn't like it, didn't want it, thought it should be passed along. That's not fair. That's the money I use to buy food for my family being taken away so someone can get a free book.

Works the same way for the photographers. I'm using photos I don't have the right to use. Doesn't make it right. Doesn't make it easy to kill those posts. I mean, who doesn't like a good hot guy pic? The photographer who is having their work thieved. So I'm sorry to have to do this. Tasty Tuesday is out until further notice. Suit Up Sunday will have to wait for another gala. The party is over.

I'll still have the other usual posts, but probably with a few less photos - unless I own them or bought them. Thanks for your understanding and please continue to follow the blog and all I do. I appreciate your support.
