How to Find Creative Commons Images for your Blog
Images are important for every blog post – if you don’t have an image it can really detract and won’t be anywhere near as inviting to your readers.
It just seems to be part of human nature that a blog post with a nice image will do much better than without the image. Better in what way? Views, engagement, social media sharing, links etc.
So if you are looking for images under a Creative Commons license, ie images you can use if you attribute correctly – try the following.
1. Flickr Creative Commons
2. Creatives Commons Official Search
3. Wikimedia (Wikipedia) Commons Search
Really, the Flickr tool is the most usable and has a vast amount of images.
If you are not exactly sure on what Creative Commons is – and the various licenses available, see this page for an explanation: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/
