The Importance of Images


I've been in the world of blogging now for about 15 years. Of those years, most of them are on WordPress and my current blog, Oh So Lazily, has been around for about 6 of them.

    I have an illustrated blog and a majority of my comments focus on the images. I think images help to break up long paragraphs and give readers the option of the “long” read or a short version of east post. Couldn’t agree more with this – pictures are essential.

    I try to post at least one photo in each post, but it depends on what the post is about (and how lazy I am). I agree that it draws some more attention to the post. Since I usually takes lots of photos I always have something that is relevant to the post.

    Your first paragraph describes me. I thought that the words ought to be enough, that if I write well enough, it should stand for itself. On the other hand, I don’t really know where to get pictures. During most of the year, I’m really busy with two teaching jobs. I don’t have time to write much and since not many people have stopped by my blog, I sort of gave it up. I go back to it now and then when we’re on a break, but sometimes months go by and I haven’t done a thing. So, to ask a stupid question: do I have to take my own pictures? Can I google images and use them? One time I tried to look up royalty free pictures, but it got too complicated and I gave that up too. Your blog is very helpful! I’m glad that I found it!

    • Hey Jeanne, now you can use Google images Google allow users to use by usage rights. You have to go Google image search section then click on ‘Search tools’ to bring down a list of filtering options. From there click on ‘Usage Rights’ and you can filter results by the options.
