"Blog this" - flickr button

For all the photography enthusiast out there, there is a compelling feature in flickr that will be quite useful for frequent up-loaders. Whenever I upload a photo on flickr, I usually share it with my friends by copying the URL and tweeting it from my twitter client. Perhaps this is the most conventional way and few people I know, also do the same thing. But, there is this button called "Blog this" which can make this a facile job. A first look at this button may be slightly misleading as it says blog this. But this can actually be configured to be used with many things not leaving twitter. Follow the following steps and your done.

1. Click on
2. First time users have to configure with twitter or other blogging sites like blogger or wordpress. To configure with twitter, just click on "do that now". Select twitter from the drop down selection box. Authorize flickr to use twitter by clicking "Go to twitter to authorize". Enter your credentials with twitter and click "Allow". You'll be redirected back to flickr. Your done with the configuration.
3. Once this is done, now you can click on "blog this" button, select twitter and tweet your photo right from flickr.

Upload a picture and a couple of clicks and there you go your art have already become the talk of the town.
