Lately I’ve been on a kind of meme creation craze. Basically, I started making these images with quotes a couple weeks ago and haven’t stopped.
I wasn’t sure what it was about putting text on images, whether to promote my books, my websites, or, quite honestly, simply for the sake of creating them. It’s addicting. And it’s kind of weird. But, I finally figured out the real reason…
It’s a lot of fun!
It really is. If you’d like to try your hand at it, I recommend using Canva. (No affiliation) It’s mostly a free-to-use site where you can upload photos and add text and some basic (but cool) design elements to them.
So lately I’ve been uploading the memes to my facebook page and quite a few people asked me if they can share them, where they can get the higher resolution versions to print for themselves, and some have even asked if they can use the images on their blogs.
The answers are:
1. Yes. Help yourselves to sharing them. You can use the links to all the social networks at the end of the post and for Pinterest hover your mouse pointer over an image for the pin button to appear.
2. The higher resolution photos are on this post, click on any image and it will take you to the full resolution. There’s a lot of images in this post, so be patient for them to load (it’s worth it).
3. Yes. You most certainly can use these images on your blogs as long as you do me a solid and link back to this post. (Thank you.)
4. Print to your heart’s desire. They make great inspirational posters for your walls. However, please don’t sell.
