I notice quite often that I scan blog posts quite quickly to pick up on one of two things: keywords in the title or pictures. One or the other has to catch my eye to stop my scroll down the page.
How important do you think pictures are to blog posts in general? Do we pass over potentially influential or interesting posts because of a lack of graphics or the lack of choice key phrases (two separate issues, granted).
I will look into the issue of both. My supposition is that both are important, but need to be used both consistently and well. I think that I am more strongly influenced by graphics, as I can process these faster. Can make assumptions at a more rapid pace.
What do you think?
