Use Unsplash images to spice up your blog

Whether you are a new blogger or a seasoned pro, you need images to make your content more appealing to your readers. The best way to do this is with gorgeous images that are relevant to your writing. Finding those images can be challenging if you don’t own a good camera and skills to take great photos. Images through stock photos services are expensive and most don’t do justice to the amazing article you just wrote.

Luckily there is a solution to this problem. Unsplash is a website with free to use images that are absolutely gorgeous. You can browse over to the site, find an image and easily download it and use it in your work. The only ask from Unsplash is that you attribute the author/owner correctly to the image.

As you can see, there is no easier way to spice up your content with beautiful imagery than using Unsplash. I’m a fan and hopefully you’ll become one too!

Blogo is a great editor for WordPress blogs

Blogo is a great Mac blog editor for WordPress and Blogger. If you don’t want to write using your browser you should take a look at this app.

I’m not sure why you wouldn’t want to use a browser to compose your posts. Mac Apps don’t really offer any one feature that can’t be done via the browser. Maybe you are old school and you just don’t want to write in your browser. Or maybe you want an app that is running locally for when you don’t have an Internet connection. What ever your reason this is your app.

The app does a good job of allowing you to insert images. It has a nice image editor which allows you to quickly crop and set the size on your images. It also allows you to show a placeholder for images so that they don’t distract from your writing. I like this feature a lot because images are distracting.

Not really sure what else to say about this app. Its good if you like apps and you blog on WordPress. Also I wrote this blog article with the app. You can download it here.
