Do you use your own pictures in hubs?


Do you use photos of yourself, your family, your friends, or anything else from your personal life? Or do you search the internet for pictures that match the subject you are writing about? What is your reasoning behind your decision?

    There's nothing wrong with wanting your personal privacy or being discrete. Don't sell yourself short though, I'm sure you can take some really nice photos if you wanted to.

    I don't have an iPhone, or one that even has "apps" so I am clueless on these cool new tricks and tidbits ~ sounds really cool & handy. Thanks for your answer!

    I also try to use my own pictures for recipes, however, most of the time the family eats it all before I have a chance to take the picture! LOL

    I'll have to work on that ~ it has affected the number of recipe hubs I've written.

    Pictures do help "tell the story" or at least draw people in, & you are correct, sometimes it is very difficult to take a picture of what you are writing about for yourself ~ thanks for your answer
