Free Resources for blogs and website (2020 Update)

A few years ago I wrote a post about free resources for your blog and website. Here’s an updated list of free resources for 2020.

Finding resources for your site is hard.

Finding good resources that are free is even harder.

Never fear! We’ve rounded up our current favorite resources for free images and video to give your site a quality feel.

Pixabay

I love pixabay. It’s easy to search, and has a huge collection of free images for anything you’d need. The site is sorted into categories, too. So if you’re looking for illustrations instead of stock photos, it’s easy to filter.

Canva

There are not words to express my love for Canva. While I pay for the premium version, the free version is still incredible. Social media graphics, blog graphics, invitations… If you can picture it, you can make it so easily in Canva. And while I am a Photoshop addict for life, Canva provides a unique solution for doing things quick, easy, and beautifully. Plus, their templates are top notch.
