Blog Images Are More Important Than You Think

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Once a person sees a picture, their curiosity is peaked, and they process the information they are seeing faster than seeing only text. It is also the perfect medium to catch anyone’s attention and keep their focus on the image as some may find an all-text content boring to complete.

With people now turning online to get the information they need, bloggers need to capitalise on the benefits of blog images on their content to get people constantly engaged. 

But, how do blog images change your blog? Here are some great reasons why you should consider it:

1. It Makes Your Content Visually Appealing

An image can make the content more appealing and create an excellent impression to the readers accompanied by relevant content. It can also create a connection between you and your readers because these images will make your blog more friendly and invite them to interact with you.

2. It Provides The Post With Structure

Utilising blog photos can also make it easier to divide your text into parts, making it easier for people to read your blog. The images can serve as the introduction of your post or as additional information for a particular section of your post.

A strategically placed image can also help break up a big chunk of words, especially when most are mobile readers.

3. It Helps You Explain Complex Information Easier

Writing technical information and instructions can be very hard to understand because of the complex language used for these topics. With the help of blog images, you can provide your readers with an illustration that will explain these complicated terms and help them recognise them in the future.

4. It Improves Your Social Media Exposure

If you want your blog to succeed, you will need to appeal to various audiences. Some of these audiences are those who don’t want to read posts without images. With the right pictures, you will get their attention and get the engagements you need to get your post recognised. Having photos with your posts can also work well with social media algorithms, which will allow your post to be seen more in the timeline.

5. It Inspires You To Develop Another Skill

Since blogs are increasing and competing for the same audiences, there is a need to enact strategies that will set your blog apart. One strategy you can apply is custom images that are designed to match your blog and content. It doesn’t have to be polished, but if you give it your all, your readers will take notice and see you as a professional blog. You may even sell your image-editing and creating services to other bloggers, giving you extra income in the process.

6. It Makes Your Blog Looks More Professional

If you can combine your text and image content well, you show your readers that you care about giving them valuable content rather than bombarding them with content that holds no value. If you customise the image, they will appreciate it by showing their support to your brand.

If you want people to peruse your content, you need to give them reasons to stick around and check your content. With the right blog image, you can transmit the information you wish them to learn more efficiently and cause them to accept your call to action. Always use high-quality images that reflect your content, and make sure to ask permission to use them before putting them in your blog.

    but not through out a blog cause most all mine are with videos.

  3. I do not prefer my Blog to be image free. It just is. I already spend so much time on writing every day. I enjoy the images others use, although some are distracting and I see some stock photos over and over. I like when images enhance the writing and are not just the equivalent of emojis.

      Those images with stock photos label all over are suppose to be paid images. Meaning you need to pay the photographer or the company in order to get those labels off. Otherwise, the person who is using them is infringing copyrights.

    Good tips, Kally. I used to never think about including an image in my blog posts. I now try to have at least one photo in a post, but sometimes it’s difficult to find just the right one.

    Honestly, I feel more inclined to read blogs with pictures than those without. It certainly seems more professional.


  7. Thank you dear Kally. As a food blogger, I must use pictures, but I didn’t know they are so important. Thank a lot. How are you?


  8. Thanks for sharing on this, Kelly. 🙂
    Adding images does help. 💯


  9. All good points! Photos are part of each post on my blog. Since I am a writer, a photo helps the reader visually see the prose at work. They also attract readers to the post as well as ending up in Internet searches. I use my own photos along with those available from WP.

    La douceur de vivre c’est :
    C’est un café avec une amie, un baiser volé, un message inattendu
    C’est le regard amical d’un passant
    C’est répondre au téléphone et entendre avec surprise la voix de ceux que nous aimons
    C’est une bouffée d’air frais après une journée enfermée dans une pièce
    C’est un sourire
    C’est une promenade au soleil après des semaines de pluie
    C’est un nouveau parfum
    C’est le sourire d’un enfant
    C’est une confidence entre sœurs et frères
    C’est d’entendre la voix de ses enfants
    C’est notre chanson préférée à la radio
    C’est une émotion soudaine
    C’est la pleine lune
    C’est un câlin affectueux.
    Mon Amie Ami passe une agréable semaine avec tes proches et ceux t’entourent
