Welcome Bedbuggers!

Hi yahoo group!

This is the blog. It ain’t much to look at, but just wait.

Regarding the banner: I am looking for a bed bug photo that is NOT copyrighted. (In other words, we can’t use one from another site unless they offer it for our use.) Any suggestions?

Also, we have the following categories:

Please post additional suggestions below (click “no comments” at the end of this post, in order to leave a comment). Remember to leave your first name so I can follow up if needed.

Finally, until I get a photo up and fix the categories, please don’t send anyone here! We want it to look good when it goes live.

Just to clarify– I will add categories for new cities, colleges, nursing homes, whatever, when the news mentions them.

Check out Flickr for bedbug photos. Some photos are licensed for free use, and you might find some good quality photos for free there.

Thanks Caitlin– Welcome!!!

I did find some good photos… but apparently I can’t edit the page template in order to give the attribution credit required. (I can pay a small fee to alter the CSS which I don’t mind, but I can’t see how to alter the template…
Any further suggestions most welcomed!

By the way, we got 55 hits to this site in the last 10.5 hours.

I vote to have a drawing of a bedbug. I can’t stand to look at the real live version anymore knowing they are crawling on me at night.

good call, Alicia!

Actually, I found a photo that was not of a bug at all, but of a sign. Two photos like this. One I could use if we attribute it, but this site won’t let me add extra text anywhere. (An attribution is just a credit to the photographer, but it has to be added on the main page so visitors will see it.)

ps 108 hits in less than 24 hours. I am kind of scared!
