Licenses and Images

What license did I choose?

If you scroll to the bottom of this website, you’ll find a footer that says “This work © 2023 by Maggie Cavanaugh is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA 4.0.” This is my chosen Creative Commons (CC) license. The CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 lets everyone know that they can distribute, remix, adapt, and build upon my website, but it cannot be used for commercial purposes, credit must be given to me, and if it’s shared, the sharer must use the same CC license. The reason why I wanted to choose this kind of license is because I have no reason to reserve all rights to what I create here. I wouldn’t want the work that I put time and effort into to be copied and used for a stranger’s profit, but if someone could find this website and be inspired or learn something from what I’ve made here, I’d be happy for them.

Why did I choose images of cats for my site icon and Header image?

Something that everyone learns about me soon after meeting me for the first time is I love cats. As a part of this week’s assignment for Digital Studies 101, I was required to add royalty-free pictures for my site icon and Header image, so who would’ve guessed I would choose cats as my pictures. My favorite part about this assignment was I got to choose two different pictures, so I picked two different cats that looked similar to my own. Found at the bottom of this post are my chosen pictures on the left next to pictures of my matching cats on the right.
