Photos and Images
Finding suitable and best pictures and videos to make a blog is a tricky task. At most you can be a part of a quality stock photo site that allows you to use their photo on your website with an attribution license.

Long content has worked for years and is still working. Instead of making small updates making a blog with informative contents that answer questions, impart knowledge and adds so much value that people cannot help sharing it with others.
