If It's Free, It's For Me!

No, really. It's true. All graphics on this site are free to use. "Why?" you ask? And I answer, "why not?" I am a retired HR Director who has been volunteering as a social media specialist for my church for several years. This was a calling from God and I absolutely love doing it. A lot of Human Resources is marketing, conveying information in a way that's interesting and easy to understand, and convincing people to do things they don't necessarily want to do (case in point: how many of you have had to take mandatory sexual harassment training for the 3rd year in a row?) So, I had to learn much of what I use now while I was in HR. Since retiring, I've played around more with graphic design and am, hopefully, evolving along with the ever-changing social media scene. My graphics are primarily square, suited for Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, but, when it makes sense design-wise, I'll provide multiple sizes. Since platforms change their optimum size requirements like Imelda Marcos changes shoes (does that reference date me?), I will try to stay up on the current requirements. One good source for that information is Louise Myers Visual Social Media. She is great at publishing the most current dimensions for each platform. You can find her cheat sheet at https://louisem.com/2852/social-media-cheat-sheet-sizes. She also has very useful tips for use of graphics on your sites.
But why free? Again, why not? No, I'm not independently wealthy, but God has provided more than enough for me, so an income is not my motivation. Besides, I don't want anything that too closely resembles a job.
So feel free to copy and save any graphics on this site. With one caveat: don't modify them in any way, please. It would be great if you would include a link to this site, but that's not necessary. Thanks!
