Day 25 of 30 Days to Being a Better Blogger

Teach42 challenges us to think about images in our posts. “Do you generally use images in your blog posts? Or do you know of someone who you think does this pretty well on a regular basis? If so, share a link!”

I learned to use images in my blog posts when I realized that I liked to read posts that had pictures attached to them. If it was just all text, I found them boring. I also like to find pictures that help emphasize a point that I’m making. When I first started though, I just plopped a picture on my post. Then after reading about copyright laws I was horrified that I had been “stealing” pictures. Now I always use the creative commons pictures or my own pictures and I always add the credits to the picture. I think it really makes a difference or at least I find my own posts more interesting.

what a fantastic blog! I'm so glad I made contact with you.

Would you be interested in Guest Blogging over my way? Is that part of the 25 day challenge? :-)
