If you make stuff, if you enjoy photography, if you like to share, then Flickr is for you. There is no other way I could have made a little 9" X 14" quilt and had that many people look at it, like it and tell me so.
When you spend a day in your sewing room all by yourself making stuff, sometimes you wonder (well I do, anyway) where it's all going? will anyone else like it? am I doing this right? Of course we should know the answer to all those questions intuitively: does it matter? It makes me happy to make stuff, just like it probably makes you happy, too. What makes me even happier, though, is being able to share and receive feedback from all over the world.

Perhaps the even more a.may.zing part is that I would never have even made these two small quilts if it had not been for flickr in the first place. I wouldn't have even known about mug rugs, what they were, or even how to swap them, if flickr hadn't been the catalyst and meeting place for creative people to share with each other.
B and I got a flickr account a few years ago so we could share photos with our faraway family members. I had no idea that flickr was a community. I thought it was a giant server that functioned as a back-up for storing digital photos. Once again, I underestimated the power of that interweb thingy.
So, to the smarty pants that thought of and created Flickr before I could, thanks pal.
