      You’re welcome, Cheryle! There are more stock photo sites available, but they’re either overly used by bloggers or too ugly in my opinion.

    Thank you for listing this sites. I’ll check them out later. I’ve been using Unsplash but like you’ve said other photos are overused by other bloggers but all in all they have a good collection of photos. :)

      You’re welcome, Jhecel! I love Unsplash but for the month of February alone, I’ve seen at least 3-5 bloggers use the same stock photo for their posts. This is not really a problem for me, but why settle for one resource when you can have a variety? :)

    Thanks for giving me an even bigger list of stock photo sites! I already love a few of the them, my favourite being Pexels. It can be really hard to find HQ images that aren’t used by every blog around :)

    I’ll never get tired of saying this but it seems like you always seem to get blog designs right down to pat. I’m always excited when there are changes in your blog. They all look so pretty <3
