Content, image and video hosting for blog beginners

First off I'll post a few links to where you can find content you can use on your site, these sites will explain to you how you can us this content, all the legal stuff about using others material. Original content is always best.

I will also post some links to image and video hosting sites, These sites will let you show images and videos on your blog (the image section will be brief, as you can upload images through blogger).

Public domain content and licensed material
Wikipedia Public Domain This will explain public domain content.
Creativecommons This is what some of the sites will use.

Trafficgeni, public-domain-sources
Has a rather big list of public domain sources. Great starting point.

Great source for articles, must read there conditions of use before you use the content. Very easy to find other services like this.
Enormous source of content, make sure you read the FAQ and the licensing terms with each media item.

Great source for images, each photo has its own license that tells you what you can and can't so.

Public domain photos.

With all of the above it is common courtesy to ask permission first and to acknowledge the owner when you use content.
