My Answers

How important are images to a blog post?

Very important; I love using images in my posts. Searching for the right ones, filling the Alt text box and copy/pasting the image credits takes up a lot of time. But I don’t mind since I feel that the pictures add value to my text.

What is tbe role of images in blog traffic and reader engagement?

Most people, unless they are looking for some particular info, scroll through blog posts in their free time. A post illustrated with eye catching images is therefore more engaging than solid blocks of text.

The featured image, I feel, is particularly important since it is what at times makes me want to click on a post.

How many images on average do you use in a blog post?

Three or more on average. For the writing prompts, quizzes and award posts I usually use just one or max two. It depends on what I fancy, really. I have even been known to constitute a post entirely of images as you can see by clicking here.

I am really looking forward to reading YOUR answers. Please remember to tag your post
