Branding can make or break your blog's success so youur blog theme and the images that you use on your blog really need to stand out! If you are a master photography then you can and will most likely create your own graphics. If not, then I highly encourage you to use these professional options! Many of these offer a few FREEBIES to download and use without having to pay for a subscription or purchase a bundle. Also, you can check out my LIST OF PLACES TO GET FREE STOCK PHOTOS for places that give you the best (in my opinion) free ones to use.

As I said before, branding is important and having a great WordPress theme that compliments your blog's niche is sure to get you noticed! There are many types and styles of themes and graphics to choose from and it really depends on what your blog's purpose is. This blog is running on a Genesis Framework theme called Darling Theme. I love how beautiful and feminine it is and it totally works for my blog's purpose! These are all some of my favorite places to purchased themes and graphics for my blog and Pinterest.
