I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm fine. I had some computer issues and was offline for a good while. When I came back, I discovered PP was closing emoticon :sad: I am writing at BlogJob and at MyLot, and will continue to keep my account open here. I just don't think I'll check in very often...

Hi Kyla, Can you tell me how to find a specific member here? It looks like there is not search box to do that with. If I knew the answer before, I don't remember now since I've been MIA for quite a while.

Remember the conversation we had on a post by BodieMor about using Google Maps screenshots in a post? I asked Google Maps for permission to use a screenshot from Street View in a post on Persona Paper and their reply was in the negative. Here is an extract from the email I received from them: '' We have reviewed your request to reproduce Google Maps Street View imagery on your blog. Unfortunately, we cannot approve your request. We typically do not allow third party use of our logo or brand features.'' So there it is in writing - we can't use screenshots of Google Maps/Street View in a blog post!
