(4) As a daily blogger, photos help illustrate my subjects and provide visual interest. I may not use photos in every blog, but I enjoy using them when possible. At times, I use free clipart. Illustrations of any kind break up the text and present a more readable blog. Because the heroines of OUT OF THE BLUE and THE TEXAN’S IRISH BRIDE are from Ireland, I’ve used photos of trips to Ireland in several blog posts. To flavor many other posts, I’ve plugged in photos and the occasional cartoon character.

In addition to adding to the impact of a post, I believe readers enjoy photos. I certainly do. One of my favorie blogs--other than mine, of course--is that of Beth Trissel. She features wonderful photos taken by her husband and her brother.
What’s your opinion? Do you like photos in a blog?
