Normally I use this blog to publicize newly-published articles. At least once before, however, this site simply held some images I created in preparation for an article for an online magazine site.

Writing Tip for Images
By default, the originator of any creative work has copyright to that work. If I write an article, for example, my byline and the publication date indicate the I wrote it and have copyright. (Unless I sold that right to the publication, of course).
Images distributed over the Internet are very easily copied without a good way to establish "first publication". By posting an image in a blog under my control, and with the claim of creating it, I establish that it is mine and that I have copyright.
