Images for Websites

Thanks for coming to my blog, gorgeous and stuff, where everything is hopefully, gorgeous and stuff. Seems like a pretty easy theme to follow, right? Like it’s probably just some basic formula that is repeated over and over in a different way? Well, to an extent, that’s true. If you’ve got good taste, it’s never hard to find the best stuff. However, maybe I shouldn’t be saying “never” because for years and years I have struggled to find effective stock photography for any of my trip project. Navigating stock photography is one of the most annoying parts about managing site or posting blog posts. Seriously, every time I go in optimistic, and no matter how great the article goes, finding the corresponding image in most of the stock photography sites that I’ve been using has been absolutely Dreadful and horrible and all sorts of other negative adjectives.

Why am I complaining about it? Well, first of all, because it’s horrible and it’s part of my life and what else is the internet for if it’s not to complain and have people read it? How ever beautiful your website builder made on your blog, if the photos are not good, then it’s a total waste of time. But, I’m also complaining because I am just trying to provide context for a new solution I found that I am absolutely totally completely super excited about. For real though. It’s awesome.

I’m speaking of course of EyeEm, this totally new, totally great, totally awesome, totally way better than any of the Alternatives type of image hosting site, filled with Stock Photography that is like actually interesting and engaging. For me, this site has been like the rain after a horrible drought, fresh air after a whole day in the car, or… Well, I’m sure you can figure it out.

Seriously though, there is nothing less heartening, or more disheartening, then finishing an article that use super love, and having to attach some boring image that doesn’t mean anything. All of the sudden, that problem is solved for me, and all is right in the world. Thanks EyeEm!
