I like to add images to my blog posts. It can make a plain looking post a lot more visually appealing and will draw the eye to it as we’re visual creatures. I’ve used iStock Photo for quite awhile to purchase images for my posts. However, it can get expensive after awhile.
Another alternative is to use a photo sharing site like Flickr but a common problem with using a site like that is if you’re linking to an image and it gets removed from the site it’s gone from wherever you used it as well.
Thanks to Lynette Chandler of TechBasedMarketing I was recently introduced to a super cool WordPress photo plug-in. Very rarely do I talk about plug-ins but this one is definitely worth sharing and Lynette has made an easy to follow video with step by step instructions on how to use it.
