All good points, and all considerations I follow in my blog.

Folks seem to have a harder time with attributing photographs as well as they do text. It's a concern of mine, since I have a lot of photographs on Flickr.

Also, I've never figured out why or how to use "trackback" links instead of just linking to the original post. Do you have a good reference for this?


Thanks Beth,
I subscribed to your blog earlier this week. I recently discovered Creative Commons licensing and I was very pleased to find it in the title of this post.
Thanks for passing on the advice from Maya Norton. Obviously all of us bloggers find ideas, links and content on other blogs and it is good to find effective and meaningful ways of recognizing others work without adding masses of extra content to our own blogs.
I found your blog about 4 years ago when I did a uni assignment on education and technology and I'm very pleased to discover it again.

A question for readers: Do you know anyone who is creating charity badges that can be used in Australia?

Maya Norton

Dear Beth,

Thanks for quoting me, I appreciate it.

One of my favorite things about the blogosphere is joining in a global conversation that is interesting, useful, and collaborative. Valuing the voices of others means respecting, crediting, and citing their efforts. That's what makes the conversation most fruitful.

Best wishes,

Maya Norton

Flip the Bucket --

can you clarify your question? Do you need something that can be linked to an account so people from Australia can donate in aussie dollars? Or do you want a charity badge that can directly deposit the money into an the aussies's ngo merchant account? Or both?

I believe that Network for Good is only US nonprofits and the last time I checked the basic donation tool did not accept international currency - but this might have changed.

ChipIn can be linked to a PayPal account which can accept some international currencies or at least exchanges them. I've had several donors from Australia.

I'll ping a few people.

@flatbush -- I just linked the phrase trackback to a guide to trackbacks. It depends on your blogging platform - typepad and wordpress use it. There is a growing problem with Trackback Sp*m

Beth: Thanks for the links! I've taken a look at a couple, and I'm still following through.
