Sharing via Social Networks

Sharing via social networks and text-based links to The Micro Gardener website ARE perfectly acceptable. However, the correct web link to the image or page must be included. 

Photo Credits

Photo attribution is good manners and ‘netiquette. You credit the original owner of the image which protects their IP (intellectual property). This honours their work.

Adding Links to Images

Please include the URL (link) to the PAGE THE IMAGE IS LOCATED on my website. It is NOT acceptable to just use a general link to “”

When you visit a site to find more information about an image, don’t you get frustrated if you can’t find it?

“Adding the correct URL is like putting the return address when you post a letter. It helps people find you.”

You can add the link above or below the image AND as a CLICKABLE LINK on the image itself to redirect to this site. e.g. “Source (or Image via):”

[Hover your cursor over the image on this page. You will see it is clickable and will divert you to the original webpage].

“If you share an image without crediting the ‘artist’ or author, it’s like stealing a painting from an art gallery and hanging it in your own home, as if it were your own. When you share a link to the ‘artist’, it’s a compliment to their work and they get recognized. A ‘win-win’ for both of you.”
