Friday Find: Free Photos for Your Blog

When I began reading this recent post on Robert Lee Brewer’s “My Name Is Not Bob” blog, I thought I was reading my own words: “I’m often slow about adopting new things. As such, I realize many bloggers already employ images in their blog posts on a regular basis.” But then Robert continued: “In fact, I even started using them more regularly in the final months of 2011 (and my traffic increased).”

Um. Well. Yes, I’ve known for awhile that I should include more photos on my blog posts. But I just haven’t been very good about doing so.

Robert’s post provided another needed push. If you’re interested in adding some imagistic life to your blog, I recommend that you read it, too. (See also the useful comments section.)

I’ve also been  encouraged–if only slightly overwhelmed–by an excellent resource that was kindly recommended to me via Twitter. My thanks to @franmerlie for sending me to “15 Best Places for Designers to Get Free Stock Photos Online.” That, my friends, is the chief Friday Find of this post.

Enjoy the weekend, and I’ll look forward to seeing you back here on Monday.

    Thanks for your post. It is always good to have these resources. I use Google Images and search for images that are available under the creative commons licenses. Kelley Coyner

      Thanks, Kelley. That seems to be a good way to go about things, too. (Sort of what #12 in that list linked above gets at.)
