Shea was a bit surprised to see this article show up on Facebook tonight, especially since this random blog post happened to feature a picture of Shea and Pace breastfeeding.
Turns out an acquaintance of Shea’s from a mommy board (but who Shea’s never met in person and is someone who likely wouldn’t know what Shea looks like) came across the article and posted it to her Facebook where it, in turn, showed up on Shea’s news feed.
Shea’s had a Flickr account for quite awhile (though it’s desperately in need of an update!) and was getting a few requests to use some of the photos she had from pro-breastfeeding blogs, web sites and even one company who wanted to use a photo in an informational pamphlet they were preparing for use in hospitals across the US.
I set some (not all I don’t think) of her photos to have a Creative Commons license to make it a bit easier for folks who wished to use these photos to go ahead and do so. But yeah, when you don’t actively watch the Flickr stats or messages, it’s still a surprise to see one of your photos show up like this, doubly so when it shows up on Facebook via a semi-acquaintance!
(Of course, I won’t even get into the fact that Shea’s most viewed photo, which has nothing to do with breastfeeding and doesn’t contain any nudity at all, only got that many views because it was linked to by a weird Japanese fetish site!)
