Here's an interesting aside about a 22 year old who used a camera, flickr, and Creative Commons to become one of the most widely used political photographers in the country:

there is a way to filter google images to only show the ones that are ok to use.....

1. search for an image on google like you normally would.
2. click "options" and then click "advanced search" from the drop down menu.
3. on the advanced search page, scroll down to "usage rights".
4. click on "free to use, share or modify, even commercially".

this will sometimes whittle your choices down to bare bones compared to the unfiltered results. but at least you know you'll be safe from fines or legal issues.

Thanks Dan.

Using Google search in Chrome, the process was slightly different.

Search images
Far right click "Search Tools"
Click "Usage Rights"

I was using firefox. didn't realize the browsers were a bit different.

Bing might have the exact same filter as well. I'm just not familiar with Bing.

But I might start looking if I knew they had this filter also.

Graphicriver.net is a pretty good source at prices much cheaper than iStock, Getty and the other big guys. The selection is a bit more limited, but you can grab a nice, high quality image for a buck or two.

From images to content. Do most of you write your own content or copy and paste from someone else or a little of both?

I write my own content. Sometimes I do use online articles and expand on the theme.

The rest of the time everything is original but I will reference and link to medicare.gov.

5 Medicare Open Enrollment Tips You Must Know

As for images, I draw my own from memory.
