Blogger Trade Secrets – Creating Images Brands Will Love

I think when you’ve been blogging as long as I have you’ve seen it all. I remember when I actually had my first camera and was including horrible pictures with my reviews and as I’ve grow up over time I’ve evolved. I’ve made plenty of mistakes along the way but I know what brands love and when you’ve been doing this as long as I have you will too. I wanted to start a mini -series and post a few tips that I think will take any blog to the next level. I have so many people ask me for advice on how to do better, or even how to start a blog and I hope to answer many questions here.

You’ve decided to sign up with some blogger networks and you’re wanting to do reviews. To compete with the opportunity that is available you’ll want your images to stand out. You’ll want high quality photos and a full subscription to PicMonkey.com. Use banners and text and easily add your own logos to create something truly original!

With a few simple steps you can easily create high quality images that will stand out to brands!


I love adding brand logos and truly making the entire image custom. It makes for an easy Pinterest photo and I allow all brands to use my photos in any way they like. It’s great for extra promotion for you too!

As technology grows so does this realm of blogging and working with brands. If you go above and beyond for your work you will be noticed!! I want to open up this space for questions – do you have any questions for me about blogging? Anything you’d like to really know?

What are some ways you make your images appealing on your blog? How could you make them better?

    I think it’s important to focus directly on the main object in an scene and make sure it remains highlighted without background images coming into focus; falling into the trap of taking it only from our eyes. A good camera can work as well.
