There is a saying that goes "a picture is worth a thousand words". I guess I'm trying to test that theory and I need your help. Today my blog was given a critique by Laura Barnes at Laura B Writer ( http://laurabwriter.blogspot.com/2012/02/blog-critique-on-write-track.html ). I am very honored that she was willing to review my blog as I have only been doing this three months now and look to more seasoned bloggers for their wisdom and insight into what is best for blogs in general.
But her critique certainly made me think about a few things. She said I had too many pictures in my blogs and it takes longer to load onto mobile devices. The pictures I use in my blog are a vital part of my post itself but I wonder if in the name of "progress", I should limit pictures to one or two? What do you think? A lot of people visit my blog because of the pictures so will it hurt the overall feel of the blog to remove them?
She also said that blog posts should never be overly long. My blogs average about 350 words but maybe they seem longer because of the pictures? My posts can be shortened, but then would the "message" be lost?
I will let YOU, dear readers, be the judge! Stand up and be counted! Please leave a comment and let me know what do you think about the possibility of removing the pictures and/or shortening my daily posts. I want my blog to be something you enjoy so here is your chance to chime in! If the majority of the comments say they don't like all the photos, then I will stop. If you say you are falling asleep before you reach the end of my post, I will cut them shorter.
Thanks, everyone...because where would I be without my readers?
