Flickr Gadget

Sorry if I made everything confusing.

If you go to your layout page and go to select a gadget, do this:

When the box comes up with all the gadgets, go to "Most Popular" on the top left. Then when a new window pops up, there will be a search bar in the top right hand part of the box. Search "flickr." Then select the last result on the first page, the one that says you can post uploads from any flickr account.

Then you just have to set up a flickr account. It's really easy, and once that's done, the gadget will ask you to type in the username of whatever flickr account you want to put up.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask at my blog ( or email me at

Hope this helps!

Hey Bumblestumpers

If you haven't looked at Paul's Illustration 4 class blog yet, you really should. I hadn't thought to until now, and there's some amazing stuff over there.

So go check it out.

ALSO: There's a way to add a bar onto the side of your blog that can link to a flickr account. I found this a good way to have a mini-portfolio in your blog so people don't have to rummage and go back pages to find your work. I think it's under "most popular" under gadgets, and I had to do a bit of searching. But it automatically links everything, adds a full view option, and places a copyright license (that you can change) under each piece, so I thought that was pretty cool.

Anyways, have a safe holiday. Drink lots of wine and eat a lot of candy.

Grading is done-- I took your projects and graded them individually, graded your classroom participation, considered your effort and attendance and then divided it by six to come up with your grades. Whew. Next time I'm just going to use Tarot Cards.
If you'd like your grade breakdown, shoot me an email.
Otherwise-- Happy Xmas, Merry Hanukkah and a zealous Kwanzaa to you all.
I will see you at reviews after the new year.

all my work from the semester.


It is with great affection that I rename this blog!
A few of you have asked if we could keep it up and running as a place for those of us who survived my Illo4 class to post work and stay in contact-- and I'm all for it.
Since we all know the world is full of Bumblestumps I thought it appropriate we change the name, since you are all post Illo4.
The blog goes on! Please keep us all updated with your works!
