Welcome to 2012, everyone!

Everyone seems to like a New Year. There’s fresh optimism about what’s to come, despite the news at the end of the previous year. Don’t year-end wrap up reports seem to be rather depressing? It always amazes me how quickly we forget that stuff to be happy for the New Year. Perhaps it’s just something we have to do.

The New Year is often a time of change. For instance, I know that parking at my gym is going to be packed for the next month or two as many people try to get over their holiday indulgences. In that respect, I’m no different – been packing away the cupcakes and ice cream lately and I’m feeling it. However, there’s something else that I’ve decided to change this year.

I’m Going Creative Commons

As of January 1, 2012, I’ve decided to adopt a Creative Commons license for the use of my photographs. It’s not something I decided lightly, but I finally got over the last hurdle. You see, I don’t mind non-commercial use of my photos. When someone asks me if they can have a photo for a background or some other use, I’m good with it. However, I’ve never been appreciative of commercial use of my photos. That’s one of the big issues I had with Creative Commons – it doesn’t adequately describe “Commercial Use.” So, I quietly allowed people to use my photos and went after commercial entities who used them without a license.

What I lacked, however, was the benefit of attribution from those who shared my photos. While I still would like Creative Commons licenses to have a bit more definition about the terms of Commercial Use, I find that no longer outweighs the benefits of sharing and attribution. Over the past couple of years, I’ve observed other photographers on each side of this issue. What is eminently clear to me is that there is greater benefit – to everyone – when your usage intentions are identified in a way that people can understand. Not surprisingly, sharing with attribution really does provide its own rewards.

I know the old argument – in fact, I’ve made it in the past – that you pay your bills with money, not attention. That’s true, but the bigger truth is that you aren’t going to get much money if you won’t let anyone pay attention to your work. As I said, I’ve watch photographers on both sides of this issues. Those who are sharing their work via Creative Commons are coming out ahead of those who are filing DMCA notices left & right.

My photos are still registered with the U.S. Copyright office, so I’m not giving up ownership of my photos or copyrights. Rather, I’m simply providing a usage license. Although I’ve found some unauthorized commercial uses of my images in the past, I don’t see that it is a very common problem worthy of overriding the benefit of sharing with a Creative Commons license.

With that in mind, I’m adopting the following license:

Attribution-NonCommercial CC BY-NC

This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work non-commercially, and although their new works must also acknowledge you and be non-commercial, they don’t have to license their derivative works on the same terms.

How Does it Work?

It’s very simple. You’re free to use my images on your blog, for personal use – basically anything that isn’t a commercial business use – as long as you do the following:

* Link back to
* Give credit to William Beem

If you want to use one of my images for a commercial use or for a print, please contact me to discuss a licensing agreement. Larger versions of most images are available on my Flickr account, and I’ll work to upload larger versions of images that aren’t full size.

Please see my Licensing page on my blog for more details –

Tips To Help You Meet Your Fitness Goals

Staying fit is something that everyone should do for their own health. Yet getting into shape is a rather broad topic; this is why you want to read as much as you can about the subject. The following article shares some great ideas you can use when on your fitness journey.

Create a garden. People are shocked at how much work gardening really is. There is weeding, digging and there’s also a whole lot of squatting going on. Gardening is one of the best hobbies to help get you in shape.

Do not let this worry you. Another great fitness alternative is biking. Your commute to work each day can be enhanced by riding a bike. It is inexpensive, exhilarating and great for fitness. A drive that is 5 miles is a 30 minutes bike ride so check off exercising from your to-do list before you even get to work.

When beginning any weight training routine, start with the smaller machines first. Begin your routine by using barbells and dumbbells first and working the smaller muscle groups. That way, when you move to working out the larger muscles, your more delicate muscles can take a break.

Keep a journal or record of your daily activities. Include all the exercises you do and everything you consume. As well, report on the context regarding your day, like the weather outside. This way, you can reflect on highs, lows and obstacles you encounter. If you couldn’t work out for a couple days, write down why.

When you are lifting and doing reps, you should count down instead of up. This will allow you to keep track of the number that you are on and also provide more motivation.

Start with a clean workout area by sanitizing the equipment before you start. The person, or people, before you probably left a few germs. You came to the gym to feel good, not to become ill.

The benefits of fitness go beyond the physical results. Achieving physical fitness can improve your emotional well being. The endorphins released while working out can improve your mood as well as some depression medications. When you get fit, you help yourself feel better about the way you look and improve your overall self-esteem. Therefore, a couple of workouts can make you happy.

If you are looking to putt a golf ball more accurately, it’s best to aim your putts about a foot and half behind the hole. This area will be free from footprints. This area will have thicker grass blades and will cause your ball to slow down.

Try recorded workouts for some inspiration. You can either turn on a fitness-themed channel or find an on-demand fitness show for your workout. Try new videos or on-demand videos that will help motivate you. You can even search online for videos if you have no television access.

While weight belts were once considered essential for each weight-lifting session, nowadays, the consensus is that belts are only necessary for challenging lifts. The are many disadvantages to using a weight belt on a regular basis. Muscle groups like the abdominals and lower back may actually be weakened by a belt, making them far more susceptible to injury.

Furthermore, you should be able to achieve the level of fitness you want by using these tips. Use them to build yourself a solid foundation and you will be able to reach all your fitness goals. Regular use of these tips is needed to become healthier, so use them whenever you can.
