Creating Graphics for Your blog, Instagram, Twitter

As bloggers, we are always using graphics to enhance our work, and break up all the text in our blogs. And of course, we use graphics on our social media sites to attract people to our blogs, services, books or whatever it might be. We all use different tools to create our images. Or we simply take a free image from any free image site and use it. And some of us even do text overlays on the image, or animations etc.

Canva.com is a free tool that can be used to create any graphic from a blog post, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, poster, invitations, and so much more. Canva is a great tool that allows you to any type of graphic you want for any type of social media or blog you want. It is quite easy to use and at the same time a bit tricky.

Canva has a lot of free templates that you can use and change the words, images and make it yours. Therefore, their templates, graphics, etc fall under a non-exclusive licence, meaning they can’t be used as part of a trademark etc.

If you are confident, you can create these graphics for yourself. It is a fun tool to play with and quite easy to use.

I have created a simple how-to YouTube video on this for you to see how easy it is to use see below. Also, I have created a blog post that shows you how to use it for Pinterest – click here to read.

If you scroll further down in this blog post, you can see some of the graphics and designs I have created for myself and bloggers on wordpress.com.

Additionally, you can “HIRE ME “to create canva images for you (details below). Canva is easy to use when you use the templates. However, if we want our graphics to stand out we need to make them unique and that is where I can help your graphics stand out.

Additionally, if you look at my blog itself it shows you what I have created too.

Blog banner

The blogger banners created here for Roberta (Robbie) required time and effort. They where specific and therefore I would not count these as simple. Robbie is my 1st paid client.

of course, I had to design a blog banner for myself too.

Pinterest Pins Created for Other bloggers and some for myself.
