When you write a quality content you need a quality image. Finding free images for your blog is very important to keep your reader focused and to show you how professional you are. Since images says 1000 words it is always best to find the best images for your blog. You can get high quality images for 1/2 $ for a simple use, but getting the photo for free will save your pocket. Only problems with free photos are that they are not very high quality. So without giving you the list of places where you can find free photos here is one site that will give you high quality images and  copyright free.

It's the place for dead pictures. That means copyright free high quality thousands of images. You can also search for other paid money using dream time. The best thing about this site is that it allows you to embed your picture right from their site. You can also crop the photo as you like and if you wish to give credit you can also do so using their all ready code. If you are unsure about the license click here to check that out.


2.  Write the keyword for the free photos from upper right corner search box and click search

3.  For further search look for the search box on the upper right and be sure the it says "free photos" next to it

4.  Click on the image you want to use

5.  You will see two links, one is for image url and other is for page url

6.  Click on the image url and copy it to use it from their site, or download it by right click and save and upload it to your blog

7.  If you wish to give them credit from step 5 click on the crop and post

8. Crop as much as you need and click finish

9.  You can also see a code now to embed in your site or use the crop version from their website.

It's always a good idea to give credit for image if you are not sure to avoid any conflict later on. This website is great because it allows you to use the image link right from their site. If you use blogger or similar site/ host there is a limited amount of MG/GB you can use, so it's always good to use the linking src. If you don't know how to do it, and how you can drive more traffic using the photo you can check out my other tutorial about how to customize your image for blogging to drive more traffic.

You can even earn a full time income from blogging, but remember there is no such thing as “get rich quick” but by following these simple steps you’re be monetizing your blog in no time. And even if your goal of blog writing is not making money, it’s a nice perk.

There are three main ways you can make money from blogging: Advertising, affiliate marketing, and selling products/ services. There are many different ways of how you can make money from blogging within these three categories. Which ones are the best? Well the truth is there is no single way to get rich from blogging. First you need to establish your niche. The techniques you chose will depend on your niche, as well as on your own skills and preferences. But as always not all techniques are equal and there are some highly effective methods that are worth knowing. So here I am going to reveal some excellent ways to make money from your blog. And soon enough you will be pulling in the cash from your blogs.

  1. Google Adsense – This lets you chose a number of ads that are within your blogs niche. You will be paid according to the number of people clicking on the ads. Their normal ads are excellent. 250×300 pixel ads are the most effective. Ads that are placed above the fold or blended with content generally get higher click-through-rates.
  2. CPM Advertising Networks are also worth a look. Here you get paid for the number of page views that your ads on your blog generate. To get a higher CPM: Put your ad at the top of the page, and use a bigger format in terms of number of pixels. Check out and

Your readers click on the advert from your blog to obtain further information. A great way of generating more income from this method is write a review so your readers can get to know more about the product.  You need to be honest and highlight the pros and cons of the product.  If they proceed to purchase, you earn as well.

Membership programs are a fantastic way to have a recurring income as unlike purchasing a one off product, generally membership sites have monthly recurring fees which means more money for you!
  7. Direct banner advertising – Selling your own advertising space is an excellent money-making method. But in order to get qualified advertisers ensure you have a large audience.
  8. Review products -  If you get a lot of traffic to your blog there are many companies that would happily pay you to write a review of their product which in turn drives traffic back to their website.  Not to mention reviews add credibility to a product.  Look out for new products launching and approach them with your offer.  Better still create a page offering this service.

But if you need more information about the website and/admin you can do so this days using several websites. Those websites give you the information about site registration and the information they provided. Here is some of my favorite sites for this job.

This site lets you search information about a site very easily and without having tons of ads popping up. You can also search for a site using keywords and check for a domain space form here. It will also provide with extra link if available on the site of your search for more information.
This site has relatively more advertise involved but it is fast and provide information you need. Using this tool you can also search for a  site using either domain name or IP address. You can also look at underlying registry data for the site you are looking for.
 This site provides good information and all information that are available on the source you were looking for. The best thing about this site is it's organizing way of showing the information and advertise
This website is a new website that provides information similarly as other information site. This is on number 3 because of it's speed and too much unorganized advertises. In this site you can see the birth and expiration date of the site in addition.
This site provides almost all the information you need for your search. This site has difficulty loading new site's information up fast. But using this you can see the people who shared the site on social sites like twitter and blog that was been shared the link.

Create music online fast and free

If you have heard that we can do anything in the internet, well your wrong but one thing you can do is making music. There are several websites and web apps that allows you to create simple and fast music using royalty free or conditional loops. If you are a podcaster, YouTuber or just looking for to use simple music bits of your won then you can check out this list.

Soundation Studio
My personal favorite for it's simplicity The tools are advanced and very easy to use. You can either choose from hundreds of free loops to create your music or you can use premium sounds. Another great thing about this is that you don't even have to register, which you can for saving and sharing your music on the cloud.

Jam Studio

Jam studio is another free to use simple and fast music creator online. Feature thing about this tool is that you can move around the interface to suit and work with and very easily. It also has lots of customized beat and built in loops with it. The only thing I don't like much about this site is that you have register (which is free) to save the music. 


This tool is rather hard for new users. It is good for very customized music beats you create. This doesn't have free loops to use with and you need to login to save and download.


These are similar websites that allows you to create 
music using loops. I personally never used any of those but I can say they wok fine. The thing that scared me at first was that there was a big button on the first page to agree with their terms and condition. I recommand you to check the terms out before going into it.
