    I was wondering if there would be anyway visitors to my site could post their own pictures to my webpage avoiding them having to email it to me and i post it myself.

    The blog I need help with is thatpartylastnight.wordpress.com.

    wordpress.com blogs will display gravatars provided:
    (1) your visitors have registered and uploaded one here > http://gravatar.com
    (2) and you have set your blog up to display them here > Settings > Discussion
    See > http://en.support.wordpress.com/avatars/gravatars/

    Your visitors cannot upload images into comments. If they could then porno images could become problematic. Consequently, this is not enabled for wordpress.com blogs.

    Wow!
    No, visitors can post links to photos hosted somewhere (flickr, wordpress, or whatever) but they can not post the pictures directly. You would have to go to links and post the images. That ought to keep things up to your standards.

    Or you could invite people to become contributors to your blog. Just be careful not to make them administrators or you could lose control of your blog:

    Why don’t you start a Flickr group? you’d have to post it but they could upload them there and you could check it daily or so.
