Blog Picture Ideas Beyond Stock Photos-Or Do You Have a Picture in Your Back Pocket?

picture of a baby boomer taking a picture

Blog posts really speak volumes when they have a picture. Now thisĀ  picture is of a baby boomer taking a picture with her Ipad of a bottle of perfume she is about to list online. This picture could be edited on photo software like Photoshop or some free platforms like Irfanview to take away some of the writing on the shirt and unpainted steps.

Or you could find a way to make this picture work with your blog post idea in it’s raw form. So let’s explore a couple of possibilities.

If I wanted to post about online eCommerce and baby boomer hustles I could show write a post on “How to Use Outside Natural Light to Take Pictures of Your Product.”

If I wanted to post aboutĀ  how to motivate yourself to paint your front steps I could use this picture. Or, I could focus on the back of the shirt to write a post about marketing with tee shirts.

The point is to step out of the box and use the photos you already have to attach to your blog posts. There are no firm rules here. You can either make the picture relate to the post you have already written or create a post to a picture you like.

But whatever you do DO NOT USE A PICTURE FROM GOOGLE IMAGES unless it says you can. It is the quickest way to get your blogs shut down by your host. I know because it happened to me one day. I used an image that was copyright protected and ALL my blogs were shut down.

So, get that phone, ipad, and camera ready and start taking pictures that you can use for that next blog post. Or search your picture warehouse for great shots that will inspire you to write.

What are your thoughts? Please no comments about the grey hair. LOL
