As a new blogger, I am experimenting with different ways to incorporate pictures into my blogs from taking my own photographs, to free clip art, to paying for photos.

What are are your favorite ways of incorporating pictures into YOUR blogs?  What are the pros and cons of each?

Hi, Penny.

Because my primary blog is a family blog, I have always just used my own photos. For other online projects, though, I have used Creative Commons photos from Flickr. There are literally millions of photos there. As long as you abide by the details of the photo license (oftentimes, just linking to the Flickr user's profile), you can use those photos in your posts. For example, if you're writing a blog post about driving traffic to a website, you can use a photo of a traffic jam at the very top of your post.

I also enjoy browsing through the beautiful stock photos on sites like Shutterstock.com and iStock Photo (although I have never purchased a photo from those sites). I sometimes even get inspired by those photos and capture my own similar shots! 

Since you asked about photos for your blog, you might enjoy reading this article that I stumbled across today: Top 12 Photo Tips All Bloggers Need to Know  Such great tips there!

Welcome to the world of blogging! You're going to love it!

Warm regards,

Thank you so much for your reply.  I appreciate the ideas you shared and I can't wait to check them out.  I'm not much of a photographer really, LOL.

I just looked at your family site.  You have a Mason?  So do I!!  Your site is stunning....just beautifully crafted.  Thank you again for the reply!!
