  1. Great advice, Hannah. I will confess I don't take many of my own photos, but fortunately there are sites that let bloggers (or any online media) use their photos, which is really a nice service. :)

    1. Yes, exactly :) I should have noted that on my book blog I don't do that either.... I think on a lifestyle blog, (mostly) taking your own photos is essential, and I'm still trying to work toward all my images being 100% original. On a book/film/television blog, you can't get good images without using the Internet :) Thanks for pointing that out!
