Being a successful business owner these days often means having a website and new content regularly. One of the ways that many of us do that is by having a blog, much like this one.
This is the first blog in a series of blogs around business blogging. As these written and published I will be testing out new things.
Every blog has at least one image, maybe even two or three, depending on the length of the blog. On that note I was reading some research recently that says the ideal length of a blog is 1600 word, so that it can be read in 6 minutes or less. Not sure how many words in this one as I write it now, I will let you know at the end of it.
Today's Blog is also a resource for small business owners who want successful business blogs - a list of sites that give you access to free images. It is a good idea to check to see if the individual sites (or images can be used commercially).
Some of these do search other sites like Deopsitphotos.com in what looks like their default search box, but it isn't often their own database search.
www.dreamstime.com - requires registration, as images you pay for and a free images section
www.freedigitalphotos.net - tons of images to choose from, the larger ones you pay for, free ones need crediting the photographer
https://freerangestock.com - This is one you have to register on, but it gives you access to high quality high resolution images
