If you’ve ever contributed to a Blog, ran a website, or needed to use stock photography for some other reason, you will know how profoundly frustrating it is to find the right photo from a batch of boring, generic images. Yes, I wish that every single article could have its own customized photograph, but that would seriously interfere with my productivity, and I would really need to take a couple photography classes to learn how to do that. And, sometimes you’re writing about something that you just can’t find in the real world, and you depend on an image from the internet to make ends meet. Actually, more often than not, this is the case.
It is actually exceedingly important to attach an image to every single blog post you write. It’s necessary, and it’s evil a necessary evil. It’s only evil because the options on most Stock photography sites are not even a little bit good. So often I’ll be very proud of an article that I’ve written, and every single image that could possibly attach to it is total garbage. Well, maybe not total garbage, but it’s definitely not what I am hoping for. This pattern has repeated itself over and over and over and over and over and yes, once again, over and over again.
It’s just part of life as a blogger. The other bloggers I know I have consistently told me that they also struggle with this. However, when I recently found the website EyeEm I had wondered if I stumbled onto this Goldmine all by myself, or if all of the other bloggers that I’ve known were just lying about their struggles to keep this amazing gem for themselves. Thankfully, a lot of the bloggers and writers I know are really good people, and their dependence on poor stock photography sources is not only clear from what they say, but also the images that are attached to their blogs.
EyeEm, though, is super different. The photos are great and bountiful and the database just keeps growing and growing with more high quality content. I’m so happy about this site, and ever since I began to use it and I search for good stock photography has gotten a whole lot easier. So, even though I am sort of wanting to keep this little secret to myself, if you’re loyal enough to be reading this far into a post, I’ve given you your Stock Photography solution.
