Dearth of Imagery

There has been a significant fall-off in the appearance of my free-to-use Creative Commons licensed Flickr photos in various online publications over the past year or so.

Have online publications quit using Flickr as a source of free photos? I don't know.

Are Flickr stats no longer effectively reporting off-site links? Who knows; Flickr is constantly messing with things under the hood and out of sight.

Are there fewer online publications? Possibly; I've noticed that small-scale blogs, which often used my images, seem to be falling dormant or ceasing publication altogether.

A more likely explanation, however, is that I have been posting fewer images to Flickr this past year or two, the images I post are low-grade snapshots and not very interesting, and I moved many of my most popular images (Thailand and Spain travel photos, in particular) to iPernity. And nobody looks at iPernity!

I'm going to try to post more and better photos in 2016, and see if that makes a difference. I might even resurrect a "365" project or two!

Plenty of good pictures to be had so no one is going to search long or dig deep in old posts. So I suppose you are just fading in the background. Popping a bunch of fresh pictures up will probably hike up things.
