When I write a blog post these days, the first thing I do is make sure I have something visual to go with the post. Often it’s video but even just a decorative image (ideally something that supports the post) is enough. In the video below I go through how I go about finding free images to use in my blog posts.
People respond well to images, and generally people don’t like to read loads and loads of text content on websites so it’s a good idea to get in the habit of including an image with every blog post you write.
So that’s the ‘Why’. Check out the video below for the ‘How’. Check out the MP4 version if you can’t see the youtube one.
Here is the post I refer to in the video Stock image library recommendations which lists 3 free and 4 paid sources of images to use in your blog posts.
