If you’ve read anything about the ‘How To’s’ of blogging, you know that it generally said that graphics make the post. If you want people to read what you’re writing, then – aside from good content – you should add some sort of graphic. In other words, people readers have short attention spans and need something pretty to look at.
Enter my questions. Is this true? Does anyone really care about the graphics? Sure, it makes your post look nice. Maybe adds a bit of pizzazz to it, but are we all so shallow as to not read a post just because there’s no corresponding picture?
To clarify, this is not a judgement, but rather an observation and a genuine question. Is a graphic in a post the equivalent of a book jacket? Can a good graphic make or break your post?
