Ending My Fascination with The King’s Daughter, Soo Baek Hyang-A Review

Deep and long sigh. Talk about watching a drama plateau and never wanting it to end? Yes, I’ve finally witnessed that drama and the name was The King’s Daughter, Soo Baek Hyang. I really had no expectations on whether or not I was going to like it. I went in thinking it would be just your “typical” saguek drama filled with the usual machinations of the nobles and royals. Little did I know that this drama would become my most love drama ever; a drama to go beyond what I thought about both Queen Inhyun’s Man and the most recent love of mine, Ugly Alert.

Movin’ on Up….and on to WordPress!

I know you youngsters (and my foreign friends) have no idea of the reference in the photo. Back in the 70s, there was a really popular show called “The Jeffersons” and that was the theme song. Alas I don’t know how to inject songs into posts yet as I’m still learning.

However, during this learning phase, I’m getting more and more familiar with posting blogs and I now see the benefits (and disadvantages) of using WordPress and discontinuing using Blogger. So starting today, I’m taking that leap (of faith) and moving over to WordPress. All new blog posts will originate from here, https://newkdramaaddict.wordpress.com. Hopefully as time goes on and with the assistance of my blogger daughter, Tamika, my transition will be painless. We will see!! Stay tuned! Got some new posts coming up this weekend…hopefully! Say a prayer..

Getty Images began in 1997 and has made it a business of licensing stock photography to web sites. But in recent years, the company has been losing more and revenue from similar companies providing the same service.

In the hopes of attracting millions, Getty Images is now making available over 35 million photos from their collection. The instructions on embedding these free images is available via this link to their websites. In addition, the website to search through the images available is here. Each image will credit the photographer as seen in the image above as well as the ability to share the image links via twitter and tumblr.

It is a start and a great idea. Unfortunately, you will have to sift through the images to determine which are free and those that are not. But it will definitely be a great source for images in the future; legally obtained.
