Don’t Need a Photo for Your Blog Posts? Think Again

If you enjoy the life of blogging but wonder why you cannot get anything going with it, you could be missing a crucial aspect of your post. Every element that makes up a blog post is important, some more than others though.

Blogging is more than writing words on a document. It’s about telling a story in an engaging way, informing your audience of something you find important, or a way to just let out what’s in your mind.

You could write the most engaging piece out there though and still struggle to gather traffic. Do you have images attached to your writing?

Adding media to a blog post it an essential element of blogging that many undervalue. The old saying goes that a picture says a thousand words, and that rings true for blogging as well. With online stock photo websites to join, (sign up Depositphotos to see the variety of images available), it’s never been easier to add pictures to every post.

If you don’t think adding media is important to your blog post, think again. Here are five reasons why you should include a photo in every blog post.

Social Media Sharing

Social media users love visual content, and there’s no denying that. When you scroll through your feed, you’ll see image after image, attached to content. It’s likely the photo that first grabs your attention before you begin reading.

If you want to have your blog gain traction on social media, adding visuals will help with that. Every image will make sharing your post that much more impactful.

Explain a Story

Images are a way to explain something that words sometimes cannot do. If you’re telling a story about a vacation you went on, photos from that trip will help show where you are. Adding photos to a tutorial post help explain each step that much more.

Help Structure the Text

Adding images can help you structure the post more. Instead of adding a bunch of gaps between sections, a photo helps will up the white space, while adding something intriguing to look at. Having the post broken up into sections makes it easier on the reader to follow along, especially if they scroll through the piece.

Reduce Text, Not Length

Not every blog post needs hundreds and thousands of words to be successful. Sometimes, having multiple images with a few sentences after each one can be more powerful to the reader than a page with a thousand words. Depending on what the topic is, this may be a good route to take.

Showcase Your Skills

For someone who doesn’t blog, if he or she comes across your post that has valuable writing mixed in with relatable photos, it’s likely to impress them for two reasons. The first is that organizing a blog post with photos is not an easy task.

Not only that, but it also shows that you’ve taken the time to make your post the best it can be, and that means something to the reader. You’ve taken the time to find images that help enhance your writing and make the experience for the reader more enjoyable.
