I’ve added a Flickr widget to the sidebar on the main page of this site.

As most people are aware, Flickr is an online photo sharing service. It has a lot of really nice features that make sharing photos both fun and easy. One of those features is the ability to post by email, which I’ve been doing from my BlackBerry Pearl.

I’ve arranged things so that only those photos that I post from my mobile phone show up in the widget. This keeps things in line with the other widgets on my site, which display a real-time feed of things that have my immediate attention.

My photos page will continue to display all photos, including those taken on a regular camera and uploaded later.

Thank you for clarifying your Flickr widget. I now understand it better. I will keep checking your Flickr site to see other fun pictures. Have a great weekend, Jared.
