Believe it or not, background image is very important when it comes to the whole look and feel of your website or blogs. Even if you don’t have much content, if the whole look of the site is nice and balanced, it could leave a good first impression to your visitors. The problem is that, sometimes it’s really hard to get a good background images due to the licensing and stuff (Flickr, anyone?). Well, worry not! You can grab some free background images from subtlepatterns.com
