Who doesn't love to include beautiful images in their blog posts? Word on the 'blog-street' is that posts with images get shared on social media a whole lot more than picture-less posts. I tend to use at least one image on every post I publish. As a visual person, I am more drawn to blogs with big, gorgeous pictures. Especially pictures that tell a story all on it's own.
The good news is, anyone can include these types of images on their blogs, even if you've never held a camera before. There are many sites online where you can get free, high quality images.
These are my top five websites for free images.
1. Unsplash - I use this site 90% of the time. The picture above came from this site. Gorgeous, high quality images.
5. Public Domain Pictures
I am only sharing the sites that I personally use and recommend. Hence the reason there are only five. Of course, there are many more sites that offer free images...a simple Google search should turn up more options.

My favourite day of the week just happens to be Downton Day! Downton Abbey is such an amazing television show...the acting, the costumes, set decoration, story line, the characters and the 'downtonisms'...I love it all.
'Downtonisms' are words/phrases used by the characters during the show. Some are wise, some are funny and some are crafty. 'Downtonisms' are a big part of the show's image. Millions of people take to social media every week to share their favourite line or quote. There is even an app for it.
I figure as it's 'Downton Day', I'd share with you all my favourite downtonisms. Of course, this list changes as the show progresses.
And are there any 'downtonisms' that have stuck with you?
