Free resources for bloggers

I found this article on Mashable, titled 26 Places to find Free Multimedia for Your Blog which lists resources that bloggers can use for no charge.  As some others have pointed out, these resources can also be used for general websites.  The terms vary but if you are using any of them to derive profit, you probably want to read them more carefully.

These resources include

  • Creative Commons Search
  • Free Stock and Public Domain Images
  • Wikimedia Commons
  • Free Audio Sources

Thank you to Barb Dybwad for putting the list together.  Following is an example of a free image I was able to find on  If you aren’t blogging for profit, it might be hard to justify buying from iStockPhoto.  This is just a great alternative.
