20+ Free Image Sources for Your Blog

As bloggers, it’s all too easy to over focus on our words, opinions, and what we publish. After all, it’s the words that the search engines crawl for rankings and that drive people back again and again.

However, imagery is another incredibly important – and all too often – overlooked element.

For one, images help to assign meaning to your posts and to give context visually. For another, they help to break up the text and make your post more aesthetically pleasing – which helps to retain visitors and secure new visitors’ initial interest. That pleasing aesthetic and visual element is critical to making your posts appealing and “sticky” – and is a must-have for a quality blog post.

Here are 20+ places where you can search and download free legit images for your blog.
