I just have share this website.  Unsplash.com  https://unsplash.com/   is where you can get photos to use in your blog for FREE.

You can alter them, use them in any way you want.   They WANT you to use them!

I have been getting the photos for my blog there recently.  These are High Resolution pictures.  Many are just breathtaking.

There is a search bar so you can look for something specific if you want.  Like I looked for “photos” to use with today’s post.

So give them a look.  They are user friendly.  You don’t have to JOIN anything!!  It’s all FREE!  https://unsplash.com/

Enjoy!

Kicking and Screaming!


Alright, alright!!  I changed the theme up on my blog.  I have resisted for a long time, but after getting some feedback that said my blog looked “generic”, I decided I better try to spruce it up.

After looking over about a Zillion themes, I settled on one.  🙂

What is this new thing with WordPress, About.me?  I had to sign up with them in order to create an “About” page?  Maybe more revenue for WordPress.  I don’t know.  But After several failed attempts, I finally figured it out.  Sheesh!

If you have any feedback for about the new look, I would appreciate hearing form you.

BY THE WAY, I would also LOVE to hear feedback regarding the CONTENT of my blog as well.  I’m tough, I can take it!  Bring it on!

Thanks all!
