When it comes to blogging, I consider myself above average. I have been writing blogs since 2004 – way before it was an “IN” thing to do. Many of my blogs are very old, just like this one. It has posts and information on it from like 2005 or 2006. Through all of that time, I have seen blogging change a lot. Blogs are now websites and websites are blogs and they are still a very useful part of your business.
One of the biggest changes has been occurring over time has been the use of images. While images have been used for years, it is only the past few years they have become almost required for a post anymore. Let’s face it. People love pictures and graphics. It is an easy way to get your message across quickly and support your message too. Plus images are great for pinning and sharing on social media channels!
I have realized over the years that I am not a very good image creator. I am getting better but unless I get something at from a trusted resource, I am afraid to use it. I do not want to step on anyone’s copyright toes so to speak. One of the coolest things I found was a subscription to Image Monthly!
The Image Monthly subscription service is just $9.97/Monthly and it is full of actionable web image advice plus 25 Exclusive Royalty Free Stock Photos, 10 Conversation Starting Quotes & 10 Giant Background Textures every month. I have been using it for about 2 months now and I am thrilled with the neat backgrounds and general stock photos that I can use to create meme’s and stuff for myself! This image is one I did. HAHA It was fun.
If you are serious about blogging or even social media and always have to worry about where to find images you can use without a worry, check out Image Monthly. Hey, it is working for me and it is fun. It might work for you too.
Oh, and yes that is my affiliate link. I might make a buck or two if you choose to subscribe.
