    Posting links

    I'm hoping to get clarification on the rules about posting links.

    I'm getting ready to publish, on our company blog, a rather extensive annotated list of free stock photo resources, compiled over the course of the last few months. It was actually inspired in part by an earlier post in this forum about unsplash.com, and conceived as a resource for my own clients (especially those who seem to think Google image search is a good way to get photos for their blog posts).

    My question is, am I allowed to share that link in a post here, even though it's to my own site? Or is that too self-promotional? I've never shared a blog post here, but this one seems like it may be of particular interest to the community. All I could find about links on the T&C page is this:

    Links to external content should be kept to a minimum, and should only be used if they relate to the thread subject. Creating a post with just a link is not helpful to anyone, so please make sure links are accompanied by sufficient explanation that a reader can choose not to follow the link.

    Thanks in advance.

    If I can see that you're legitimately posting it as a resource and not just to drive traffic to your site, I won't delete it. I would like to see you maybe find one of the several stock photo threads and post it there, though.
