Share some Pictures – Day 18 of 30 days of blog post ideas

Welcome to day 18 of my 30 days of blog post ideas series. Today we focus on eye candy…

A picture is worth a thousand words, as the old cliché goes. It’s a cliché for a reason though – because it’s so true. People love looking at pictures. Pintrest and Instagram are perfect proof of this.

Creating a picture post every now and again for your blog will inject some interest between all those word heavy posts that you normally write. If your pictures contain people all the better – people love to look at faces.

Take some pictures of an event, a client meeting, a celebration, or just some pictures of your team (if you run a business). Create a post that contains the pictures along with some explanation of what they show.

  • Practice taking good pictures! The better the pictures, the better the post. The most important piece of photograph advice I know is: get closer! Make your subject fill the frame.
  • Make sure you get permission from the people in the photographs before you publish them.
  • Don’t make the photos too big otherwise they will take a long time for users to download. Resize them before you upload them, or resize them in WordPress.
