finding content blog

Family Features' goal is to make finding free content at fast and easy. Here are a few tips to help your search:

  1. The “CONTENT CATEGORIES” section of Family Features’ editors site should be your first visit. Our search function allows you to use certain key words like “comfort food,” “Labor Day,” “kids,” “health” and more that drive you to specific articles. Or, if you’re looking for an easy format to place in your publication like a pre-designed full-page or half-page layout or simply a Word document and jpeg images, use the “Select Format(s)” drop-down menu to find the format that suits your needs. You can also specify digital content including videos in this area, too.
