finally flickr-ing

For the past couple of years that I’ve had this little bloggy thing, I’ve tried to be all hardcore about doing everything myself. I was all, “Noooo, I won’t use Flickr, because I can store all of my photos on my own site. I know how to edit PHP a little bit, I can make my own photo albums. Screw Flickr and it’s missing little ‘e’!” Fine. You know what? I have finally caved to the peer pressure. All the cool kids are using Flickr on their blogs, so now I am too. And I must say, it is pretty darn neat. I love being able to leave little notes on my photos. I’ve only got a small chunk of my photos uploaded so far, but I’m working on it. You can see what I’ve done so far here.

Here’s my question: I notice that a lot of you have a place in your sidebar that shows your most recent Flickr photos, or it just pulls a few random photos. How exactly do you do that? I’m using WordPress, and I have looked all over for a plug-in that will set that up, and so far I haven’t found anything. If anyone can help me, leave a comment or email me or something. Please? I’ll send you something pretty. (Although, be warned that “something pretty” might just be a thank you e-card. I’m not very creative with gifts.)

By the way, if you still want to see all of my old photo albums, I have a link to them up in my header, but in case you’re extra lazy and don’t feel like scrolling: here you go.
