A matter of taste
So, I’ve discovered in my blogging of late that adding pictures to posts can really liven up a blog. It adds value at the margin.
I’m not sure if everyone will agree or not, but I have a request: Can we add more color to these digs? Or at least more black and white?
More attention to this detail, I suspect, would add quite a lot to this place, which can feel awfully stark at times. A blog is more than words, after all. It’s a sort-of multi-media experience. Or at least I think it ought to be.
On top of that, I have some redesign ideas swirling about that require pictures to function at all, so we’d best get practicing. And adding a picture to a post can add a double meaning or enhance or drive home the point of the piece – or even just give a visual to a book or a person you happen to be discussing. It can make a post show up in more searches, too.
So…as hands-off as I am, please consider sprucing up your lovely writing with some lovely images.
If anyone has a problem with this, of course, it’s not a huge deal. And feel free to yell at me in the comments. I know I’ve been very meta lately. I expect it will continue, for good or ill.
