Finding Pictures to Use for Blogs

   Hey there, I have a couple things to share this evening. I wanted to give you a link I use to get all the creative commons pictures I use for my blogs, eBooks, and revenue sharing sites. Maybe you already know about this site, but for those who don't this may help you find some pictures to use without breaking any copyright laws. Just remember to at least put the link to where they were found, for instance what I do is type under the picture on my blog something like: cc from en.wikipedia.org or wherever it came from. Hyper linking it to the actual wiki page would be best if you are high speed (military term meaning on top of it- high energy). 

Here is the link:

http://search.creativecommons.org/

   Use the google images tab when get there for best results. I haven't really checked out the others as much, but when I did there wasn't as many to choose from. Getting a picture for Hubpages or a blog doesn't have to be too hard, and if you are advertising using say, Adsense, then you need to do this in case of copyright infringement. No-one would likely care unless your post went viral and then somehow the wrong person found out and then who knows what happens- I guess the police show up at your door and take your laptop and punch you in the face or something. Well, likely you just would get suspended from Adsense? 


   Trying to remember the other thought to share, which had very little to do with the first???


   How is your blogging going? 


   Oh yeah... I remember now. Why isn't this site showing up on Alexa ratings? My other two sites do, but this one says it doesn't have enough data to compute. That's sad when this happens. This means you are out in never never blogging land. To come back from this type of obscurity really takes a love of your blog to not give up. Yeah, I think I'll keep up with CBJ, maybe it's the colors.


   Although my other two blogs are in the tens of millions when it comes to Alexa, I feel good about the progress overall. This Blogging venture never was a get rich or known type of project. It was more like I wanted a place I had control over exactly what I wrote and how I wrote it. I guess I can see why other places don't want what I want to write. Wow, that was horrible writing, look at all the I's!


   Still, this is an informative post at the beginning, right? I mean it may just help someone who is looking for pictures to use. Not everyone is an expert affiliate marketer making millions or thousands with their cookie cutter system. 


   That's all for now, stay tuned for some more thoughts on the Christian Blogger's Journal. And just to note, isn't Jesus awesome? Any of us could drop dead any moment, and after this life we have heaven to look forward to because we believe and follow Jesus Christ, you know the Holy Bible. Life is great with the truth, thank you Jesus. Have a good night friends.
