So, this kind of deviates from the general theme of this blog, but know that at least some of my audience are also bloggers, and a lot of you have written to me before about wanting to start a blog in the future, so I think it’s still pretty relevant and it’s what’s been on my mind these last couple of weeks.
Basically, it’s a little pearl of wisdom that I really wanted to share with anybody that also publishes posts or articles that require images. Images are, obviously, super important. When attached to an article, it is often the image which catches people’s eye, and that first judgment will have serious consequence in whether somebody decides to read that article or not. It’s actually signs. I wish people were not so shallow, but we are, and it’s something that we can learn to accept and adapt to.
In fact, it’s something that we must learn to accept and adapt to. That is what has made this last while comma for however long I’ve been publishing online, sort of painful. Intuitively, I’ve known the major importance of the image that is attached to its respective article. I know this from my experience, but I also know it from a theoretical and scientific perspective. So, being subjected to so many mediocre images and not being able to have control over the quality of impression I’m making on potential audience members? It has been amazingly frustrating. Magnificently annoying. Horribly horrible. To put it lightly.
I don’t want anyone else to have to go through this, and a couple of weeks ago I found a solution that I want to share with you. I’ve tried it for a whole 2 weeks now, and I am still as excited about this little site as I was when I began. Compared to other stock photography databases, EyeEm absolutely blows them away. It’s not even a competition. I’ve never had so many great Stock Photos at my disposal in my life.
So, if you’re the kind of person that blogs, or is interested in blocking in future, or even just writing a single post or article, this is where you will want to go to find your image.
