If you are blogging weekly (as you should be) it’s essential to have a plethora of resources to easily grab cool images and have your way with them, right? It’s important that you follow the legal restrictions for using images or you can get slapped with a big super whopping fine for copyright infringement and that will scare the pants off you.
So below you will find my fav-raves for finding cool images that rock! And they are either cheap, cheap, cheap or absolutely free. How freakin’ cool is that?!
Eye Candy that is Sweet on The Wallet
