Creative blocks happen, and luckily for us creative professionals, there are a plethora of blogs out there that provide endless ideas and inspiration. Sometimes, though, the Internet can be a little overwhelming. We put together a list of some of our favorite blogs to follow for creative inspiration. In no particular order, they are:

Bonus resource– Photography sites. The two sites we list below are not blogs, but since photos can inspire in so many ways, we thought we’d include some websites that showcase photographs.
