In the early days of my personal blog, Better in Bulk, all of my posts revolved around the pictures I had taken of my kids that week. My blog was a way for me to share what was going on in my life.
I am approaching my 4 year anniversary of blogging in October, and although I still show off pictures of my kids and write about what’s going on in our family, a lot of what I write now is based on thoughts, ideas, and tips that I’ve discovered through my 14+ years of parenting and 4 years of social media experience.
As much as I love to use my own photos, I still find myself searching for stock photos to use frequently. Blog posts – whether a personal post or an informational article – simply aren’t complete without an image or two to illustrate what the author is saying.
Since I am very sensitive to making sure I have permission to use a photo I make it a priority to only use stock photos or pictures with a creative common license. As a photographer, I hate the idea of someone stealing my work and I don’t want to do that to anyone else.
Photos.com makes it easy to find stock photos to use in my posts. All I need to do is search for a term, find a picture that fits my article’s theme, and click download. It seriously couldn’t be easier.
Photos.com helps bring any creative project to life, whether it’s a personal blog, professional website, invitations, or fliers….and everything in between. They provide a huge selection of affordable images, starting as low as $1.00.
