    It looks like there's loads to learn, a lot of great help too. I think I've already discovered it is useful to have a collection of your own photos of the things you want to write about, so I'm going to start snappy away at every opportunity.

      Good luck! Yes photos are good, because then you don't run the risk of breaking someone else's copyright. That said, it's quite likely that any photo you upload will end up in Google image search and be stolen by someone else.

    Hi Susan! Welcome to HubPages! I hope you're time here is fun and profitable.

    You can never have too many of your own photos. If you plan to write about books or book series and plan to use images of the covers, I recommend making a book stand backdrop.

    Best wishes!

    Welcome Susane! You are already off to a great start with your idea to go taking photos, as they greatly improve your chances of getting more traffic. Best of luck!

    Thanks for all of your kind words. I have become quite obsessed these last few days reading, reading, reading......on this site and all over the internet. I have also learned I need to organise my photos so I can find them again ha ha ha.

    Laughed when I read the title to this. I honestly didn't see it before writing my own similar post today. I have lots to learn here as well but I'm looking forward to making this an important staple in my current writing career. Best of luck.
