Happy Birthday to a group/community I started 2 years ago today: Central Florida Flickrs.
I started it 2 years ago today because I saw a need for people on Flickr who lived in the same area to share their work. There was already a group called “Orlando, Florida”. It is for photos of Orlando. I created “Central Florida Flickrs” for people of Central Florida.
If you are a photo taker and live in Central Florida, please, you’re invited to be a part of our group.
Here’s why I’m so pleased with this group:
I’m impressed that we have over 400 members and 18,000 photos in the pool. But you know what’s really cool? At least 150 conversations on the boards!
They call this a group on Flickr, but I have experience with this sort of thing. This group has turned into a community and I think that’s really cool. I’ve tried to stay ‘hands off’ with the rules as much as possible and have only had to create 2 rules in response to abusers.
We’ve got people trying to help each other find jobs, get together for photo shoots, advice, and playing games.
Smile! It’s our Birthday!
