I have been doing my blog for nearly two years at the end of this month. One of the best pieces of advice I can give you to help with your blog is to make sure you add pictures to your posts.
Why you ask? well let me tell you…. for a start it is easy, simple and effective technique applied to a blog post.
When using images in blog posts they help break up the text so it is much easier for the reader to read.
Added pictures makes it more visually appealing, giving more colour. It can also help encourage the reader to continue to reading the blog post to the end, which is always a bonus.
As the internet is predominately visual based, we are all used to seeing pictures on social media, so, if we see pictures on blogs it is more friendly orientated and it can help capture a reader to want to read your post.
Pictures can help enhance the message that we want to get across to the reader and they leave a lasting impression.
Images can help give your post the chance to be more memorable for the reader, so they can have an influence the reader who may want to come back .
Pictures in blogs can help be another way to enhance the changes of someone catches your post through a search via the search engine.
If you are using a graph is is a brilliant way to illustrate a point to the reader.
If you don’t feel confident in using your own pictures then there alternative options such as royalty free or stock images to use so you don’t worry whether the picture is good enough.
Added pictures to a blog post can be a way to make your post more personalised.
What are your views on pictures? Is it something that you agree on? Love to hear your thoughts!
