Amanda’s Lives was the name of this site for a short time in 2016, and my focus was about sharing. Both exchange of work and also of ideas.
I’m the type of person who sees something that a friend has created and wants to jump up and run around shouting, “Hey, look at this incredible thing that my friend just created, isn’t it great?”
Today online there’s too much self-promotion, stealing of other people’s work and taking false credit either by suggestion or sometimes directly and I hate it. I’ve been a victim of it myself quite a few times. It’s so unnecessary, petty, rude, and yes, illegal. I always go the extra mile to try and ensure that credit is given to the correct source whenever possible.
(Note: But I’m not perfect so if you find anything on one of my sites that is yours and I haven’t given you proper credit, or you would like it taken down my sincerest apologies. Please contact me immediately and I will take it down right away.)
In the meanwhile please enjoy wonderful Photography, Graphic Art, Quotes, and Writing from some incredibly talented friends and myself as sometimes inspired by others.
