    If you use pictures copyrighted by others you can get in trouble if they sue you, simple as that. There are however many free to use images available on the web, i.e. at http://sxc.hu

    it may be problematic if the picture has copyright on it. but what you can do is(for flickr or any photopages) send the author a message to use their pictures in your blog.

    You can Google "royalty free photos". Those are free for anyone to use.

    I'd like to add: It sounds like you are off to a great start. Good luck!

    sxc.hu is a good way to start for royalty free pictures.

    As long as the photos aren't copyrighted, you are in the green.

    Good luck!:D

    Images tagged with your keywords can grab some great rankings in Google when submitted to sites like FlickR, so I would definitely make sure you add them into your campaign.

    But definitely don't procrastinate.

    You should work out a good WP theme, I hate blogs that change the theme on a weekly basis.
