So I want to make a bookdeal-bait tumblr.

I have a vague feeling this is a contentious issue. I am mainly looking for advice on how to go about this, what I need to take into consideration, but I am also, on a secondary level, open to hearing about whether I should or not.
There's a photo-submission-based tumblr I would like to start, and while the site itself would be the main point, it would likely make a great book and I want to "first, be smart from the very beginning".
The format would be "old photo", "new photo" or ideally both, together with an anecdote from the poster. The main thing I worry about is that, obviously, if someone uploads a pic of their 5th birthday party, 1) they didn't take the pic, and 2) there might be someone else in the pic who hasn't consented to publication. I kinda assume there is a solid solution to these sort of issues already though?
Again, given that I want to start the tumblr anyhow; if it took off could I make a few bucks, and am I a complete tool for wondering?
