Times are tough. I know it gets frustrating. You’re busy. You’re tired. People tell you it’s not worth it. There aren’t enough hours in the day. No one understands. It’s hard. It never ends. And you just wish you could make things better.
You can do it. Right now!
Don’t listen to the nay-sayers, because they don’t want you to win. Don’t watch the clock, because that won’t change anything. And don’t feel sad because you think you’re alone.
You’re not alone. You’re on Flickr!
You have one of the largest Internet communities in the world on your side. So what are you afraid of? What are you waiting for?
Go out there and make something beautiful, or hilarious, or terrible, or wonderful. We want to see it! Come back and share it with us. Tell us your point of view. And then keep doing it. Over and over and over again.
Your vision. Your voice. Making our community better, for you and for everyone in it.
