Spice up your blog with free or low-cost photos
A photo can make the difference between whether someone reads—or skips—your financial blog post.
Here are some free or low-cost sources for photos you can use in your blog and elsewhere.
- Wikimedia Commons, which I discussed in “When your blog demands a photo of a public figure“
- Flickr’s Creative Commons licensed content
Make sure you carefully read—and abide by—the licensing agreements for each photo. Photos on the same website may have different requirements. I like FreeDigitalPhotos.net’s clear explanation of how its photos should be credited. If you’re using photos on your blog, you may need photos that are approved for commercial use.
I learned about some of these sources from @LawWriting,@ErikSherman, and my fellow writers at Freelance Success. Thanks, friends!
