I’m always really touched by people’s interest in my little corner of the interweb. Here are some answers to the most common questions…
What kind of camera do you use?
Actually, most of the pictures on my blog are taken with my iPhone!
May I re-use images from your site?
This one’s a little bit complicated but as long as…
– I own the copyright (sometimes I ask nicely if I can use other people’s images, and I can’t grant you the rights to re-use those – if so, there will always be a statement in the blog post saying where I got the images from)
– it’s for non-commercial purposes (I’m happy to discuss using them for commercial purposes too, but please get in touch)
– you don’t edit them other than cropping or resizing (again, I’m happy to discuss using them in other ways, but please get in touch)
– you credit where the image came from and link back to the post it appeared in
Then it’s fine 🙂 I’m also happy to have any of my images used on Pinterest or Polyvore.
However, just in case any of my images ever end up being used in a way that I’m not happy with (for example in the – admittedly unlikely! – event that they end up on a pro-ana site) I reserve the right to revoke this permission permanently on a site by site basis.
What platform is your blog hosted on?
What’s your policy on working with brands?
I’m very careful about the brands I work with – they have to be a natural fit with the ethos of Vanity and the Bluestocking. The same goes for accepting products – I’ll only showcase things on my site that I genuinely really like and would buy anyway. If something has been given to me, I’ll always include that it is courtesy of (c/o) that brand.
