A New Side Project...

Those who know me will know that I get no pleasure out of sitting around all day watching reality TV (that's a massive lie), but I always love to have a little project going in the background, even if it's just something to devote half an hour a week to.
I've written for the feminist art collective Peachy & Keen, and am currently a resident blogger at Estilistas and Luja Home alongside my designer and vintage resale and my arts degree. I started this blog in October of 2014 and have tried to be serious about blogging consistently since then. I recently got my AdSense account approved (woohoo!) and I'm very happy with the page views that I am currently getting.
Something that has always bothered me is that I have never managed to make any money out of my first proper hobby and passion, photography. Of course, if you enjoy doing something, you could argue that making money out of it shouldn't be necessary, but I would have loved for people to enjoy my images to the point that they wanted physical hard copy prints of my art.
I decided, going forward, that something I could do to share my photography with the world and benefit personally from was license my images under Creative Commons and share them as a free resource for bloggers and creatives to use online as they wish.
So, please do check out www.freeblogpics.co.uk and share it around - all you need to do to use the images is attribute them to me, but how you do this is your call, you can even just make the image itself link back to this website if you like!
I'll keep you updated on how everything goes! Wish me luck!
