As a new blogger it is hard to have quality and good looking content when you just haven’t had time to develop your skills yet. It can be frustrating at times when you see gorgeous blogs and you’re over there still shooting with the iPhone 4S (not that it’s impossible to make a photo look nice). Lucky for us there are resources out there and super awesome photographers that give their gorgeous stock photos out 100% free for us to use as bloggers.
It takes hours looking page by page after a google search to find credible 100% free photo stock sites that don’t link you up to Shutterstock or another stock photo site you have to pay for. I want you darling to have this resource at your fingertips so that you can create your site beautifully off the bat.
We all must grow in our blogging, social following, and learning but we don’t have to settle for that grainy pixelated photo. Here is my list of the 25 most gorgeous stock photo sites that I’ve found to be 100% free under the Creative Commons CC0 license.
