Make Your Post Easier To Read

 

A post is easier to read when there is something to look at.

Always use a photo or a graphic when writing a blog.  The pictures taken during the course of my day will usually spark an idea for my daily  post.

If I want to make a specific point I'll create a graphic  with words.

You can see some samples in the collage below. 

 

MRome Graphics

 

 

Making my own graphics has been fun and creative. I have used free form drawing apps, found images in coloring books and with the help of a few other  programs have just made this a part of my daily blogging.

 Many times I spend more time on the graphics than on the content.

If anyone needs  help with making these kinds of graphics...let me know.

No need to worry if the images are copyrighted since they are original.

Good morning Margaret. You do a great job. That said the best tip is a font that is large enough.

Love the idea of the free form drawing program.  Sometimes finding the right stock photo can be quite a challenge.

A picture is worth a thousand words, or more if it's a good one. Have a great day.

Jenna Dixon I found it was too time consuming to find the right photo/graphic. Much faster for me to create one.

Gita Bantwal And thanks for stopping by.

Larry Brewer - Benchmark Realty llc Always good to see you.

I will not put up a post without a photo and if I don't have one that hits the target a neutral generic post with some script that leads to the story

Posts that are nothing but a wall of words are very hard to focus on.  Eye candy helps make it easier to keep a reader on the page.

I've never been big on mix pictures. I think it is too much for my eye. LOL.  But it does look like a cool idea!

I agree 100%~  I try to post a graphic or two with each posting.  It will liven up the post, and make you chuckle at the graphic I find that ties into it.  Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do writing.

Thanks for the inspiration, Margaret!  It's true that posts with great graphics and photos get more attention and seem more "complete."
