Pixabay’s simple public domain images are making me want to blog again [Up: Pexels too]

This post contributes to the revival of this blog in two ways. Firstly, it’s an actual post. And secondly, it’s about Pixabay. Pixabay is a real problem-solver for any blogger whose posts require featured images.

Update: Pexels.com is probably even better.

I find featured images a bit of double-edged sword. On the one side, they can make a blog look nicer. On the other, they make publishing more difficult. You have to find a good image you can legally use, or make one. It’s a pain.

Then, the other day, while searching for public domain images, I found Pixabay. And now I’m pretty sure I’ll never be stuck for a blog picture again.

I promise I’m not affiliated with the site. It’s just very decent, so I thought I’d share. You can search their big library of public domain images, download what you want, and use it. They haven’t once tried to sell me anything, or to make me register.

You do have to complete a captcha before you can download the image you want. But I can live with it.

So yeah, Pixabay. Give it a try.
