W is for Wikimedia Commons

Christo Coetzee: The Perfect One 1994

I'm a visual person and I love using unique images in my blog posts, but sometimes it's difficult to find images that are in the public domain. That's why I was so excited to find the Wikimedia Commons webpage. It's a huge database of images, videos and sounds that are available for common use. If you haven't visited it yet, here's the website:

  1. Good one! I need to visit that site more often.

  2. oh. my. what?!!! Who knew such an awesome thing existed. Thanks so much!

  3. I stopped using images on my blog a while ago because of worry of copyrights and all that jazz. I appreciate you posting about this site. I may be able to use pics again. Grazie!

    1. I was too afraid to use photos for a long time (for the exact same reason). That's why I was so excited to come across this site!

  4. Thank You! I am always worried about using other people's images and usually use my own artwork on my blog just to be sure. This site will allow me to finally not have to paint so much!
