Stock Photo Sites: Every Blogger’s Pal

So, I’ve been running this blog for some time. Before this blog, I had a long history in running all sorts of other blogs, and writing online content for friends and their Publications as well. For me, this is my pride and joy at the moment, and I’m always happy to write a post here. I’m so appreciative to have you as an audience, and I thank you very much for reading. I don’t mean to complain about the life of a blogger, cuz there are a lot of amazing things about it. For one, I am absolutely doing something that I love to do, and there are people that appreciate it and encouraged me to keep going. There are certain elements of writing blogs that have always annoyed me, and I have always just assumed that there would never be a solution to them. Now, I know what you’re thinking:

 “ooooh writing blogs must be so hard… Yeah right!”

To a certain degree, I see where you’re coming from. There is a lot about what I do that a lot of people probably find enviable. In the past, I’ve mentioned that anyone can do it, and I will continue to do so cuz I believe that if you are passionate about something there’s absolutely nothing keeping you from achieving what you are trying to achieve. For me, one of the biggest annoyances about writing blogs and online content? It’s finding good stock photography. Good stock photography almost begins to seem like an oxymoron. Now, I’m not trying to be harsh or over dramatic, but that is what I sincerely begin to believe a lot of the time.

So, when I found a source for good Stock Photos , I felt like I just found a diamond in the rough, or a needle in the haystack. EyeEm is full of amazing photos that can be used by anybody who needs stock photography for their blog, website, or some other form of online post. Seriously, I can’t believe I existed so long without it. But, now that I have it, I can’t see going on with being a writer online without using this precious resource. I thought about keeping it to myself, but I decided that it would be best to share it with you, in case you are as much in need of a good stock photography collection as I was…

Keep on Keepin it real, people, and thank you so much for reading.

360 camaras

Top 3 manually tested best 360 cameras you should try

Pros of digital technology:

Digital technology is on the move. And there are lots of new gadgets introduced in the market each day. Sometimes, I feel lucky to be living in this age equipped with so many tools everything is just easy and accessible. I just can’t imagine being living in 1940 with actually nothing!( no facebook, no youtube not even google).

Confusion created by speed of technology:

360 camaras

 

The actual problem with this fast moving world is that we cannot decide where to invest( it really sucks). I mean, every day we see a lot of ads like ‘Hey, have you seen this’ ..’Record breaking sales’.. ‘take 70% off’.. blah blah blah. This really makes me confused and I end up buying nothing. Our human mind needs ‘options’. It needs options to compare and decide. We like to decide ourselves we just can’t believe anyone saying “hey it’s best for u”( how come he knows what’s best for me!)

360 camaras

 

Samsung has been a leader when it comes to technology and user experience. They just keep bringing awesome gadgets in the market. This time they have come up with Samsung gear 360. This gear can shot videos and capture pictures in a spherical view. It has two cameras which can shoot a 360 image but you can also use it to capture 180 images just by turning off one( yeah, draw backfeeling of control!). Although, it is a great gadget but itdrawback it just only supports Samsung devices Samsung Galaxy S6-S7, S6-S7(Edge), S6 Edge and also phones supported by Samsung gear manager app. So it is not for users like Apple and other brands.

It comes up with the price of between 300-350 US dollars. It has following specs:-

Resolution : 3840 x 1920

Memory: 1GB RAM Extendable by SD card supported up to 200GB
