Use Flickr "Blog This" with Creative Commons Images
Flickr's "Blog This" feature enables any food blogger to use exquisite images easily. Ensure that you use this feature with Flickr advanced search so that your images are creative commons only. Its a very good idea to comment on the photostream where you found the photo, so that the photographer knows you appreciate their work and let them know your use/url.
Flickr and blogs go together like Captain and Tennille. First, set up your blog. It can be LiveJournal, Blogger, Movable Type, Typepad or whatever. Make sure you like the layout of the post. If you know HTML you can tweak it to make it look the way you want. Then look for the little "Blog This" button on top of the photo or video on the its main page. Click it and away you go!
Like we said up above, if you have a cameraphone AND a blog, you can post directly to your blog from your phone in one easy step. If you haven't already, set up your blog, then go to the email setup page. Enter the 2nd email address into your phone too.
