Maybe I’m just slow, but it took me a long time to figure out how to do some neat stuff with my Flickr pix and my WordPress hosted blog.
To embed your own Flickr photos in your WordPress blog you’ll need to first add the Flickr Widget by going to the WordPress Dashboard and selecting presentation, then sidebar widgets. Then, you click on the right side of the Flickr Widget, which opens up a dialog window, and you add your Flickr RSS feed. To get the RSS feed DO NOT log into Flickr, rather stay logged OUT and visit your own pix. The RSS feed will be located on that page. Note that your feed does NOT show up on Flickr when you are logged in (at least I could not find it and it, confusing the heck out of me for the first time in the otherwise amazingly intuitive Flickr).
