Good graphics are important to the success of your blog. Having a pinworthy photo can make a big difference in traffic. But most of us don’t have the money to pay a professional to create the graphics for our blogs posts and social media.
Fortunately, there are a number of sites where the DIY’er can create professional looking graphics for free or at a very minimal cost. However, having a little design skill is helpful as well!
I’m excited to share with you that I am over at Parade Magazine (yes, THE Parade Magazine) sharing easy to follow graphic design tips for non-designers, as well as a few resources that I think you will find handy. I hope you will join me over there! I would love it if you would share as well as leave a comment as to which tip you found most helpful!

"Use contrast to draw attention" is my favorite tip. I don't use graphics a whole lot on my blog...just from time to time. Thinking I should step it up a bit. Thanks for the all the tips and CONGRATULATIONS!
