{all resources listed here & throughout my blog are used with permission}

My full gratitude to the designers who give free resources to book bloggers like myself who maintain their book blog on a small budget and allow us to add personality to our blogs without having to encure more cost.

Full explanations of why I am choosing to populate my blogroll in the manner by which you observe is found on the page below this one: Exposition of Linkage (under construction). I only share book covers, author photographs, or other book/author images or other content related to a specific book and author if I have received permission to do so by said author. Unless I did not receive these materials as part of a Press Kit from a book tour company’s blog book tour I am hosting, or directly from a publicist or literary agent.

Inasmuch as content from organisations {ie: the Reading Hour} that I have contacted for said permission as well. On occasion I do use Zemanta (its available to bloggers through WP) &/or Wikimedia Commons, by which I site, attribute, and source directly.  This information will be listed on each individual post by which this applies directly too, at the footer section entitled: Sources. Likewise, any banner, blinkie, or blog badge is featured on my blog due to the coding provided direct on their originating site for such purposes as to be displayed on a personal blog. If I had any issues with a blogger’s blog badge, I contacted them directly to receive the badge by email. All videos by Vimeo or YouTube, as well as novel excerpts via Scribd, and sound clips by SoundCloud are provided by share links or coding to embed them directly into the post, which again is listed at the footer of said post under: Sources.

I support the integrity of sourcing and attributing materials that are featured on blogs, hence the Blogging with Integrity badge on my blog’s sidebar! Likewise, a short list of frequently used resources is contained in my blurb about “Site Credits” located in the footer of my blog’s main page!

I always strive to give proper attribution and credit to all non-original content not writ or created by myself on my blog. If I have erred in this regard, please email me to remedy the situation, so that I can correctly attribute &/or source what is not yet reflected. I will remove any non-original content upon request as well if an error was made.

(info) This was confirmed by email by Jorie specifically to ensure the terms were understood. Attributions are provided under ‘Sources’ per post and page the images appear when used in a badge or other creative ‘creation’ via Canva, PicMonkey, etc to give credit to the photographer out of respect of their original art. When the photographs are used in-line with a blog post to visualise a thought or thread of a post, a link to the photographer’s site on Unsplash is provided in the direct attribution in a caption below the photograph itself.
