Comment Friday for August 15th

Comment Friday at Blog about your BlogWe haven’t done our Comment Fridays in a while. I’ve been a little busy doing quite a bit of marketing as well as working on new projects. My newest, just announced, ContestLive.com looks like it could be fun.

If this is your first Comment Friday we give one lucky person a featured link as our “blog of the week“. Along with that we are also giving that winner 250 entrecard credits.

With our post about Bloggers Selling Sex, it got quite a response. In the post I mention overall it is important to have images in the post. Do you usually include images with your posts?

    Hmmmm, selling sex. Well, I have read that on social bookmarking sites, you’ll drive more traffic if you put in your profile that you are female, between 18 and 28, and put a sexy shot up for your avatar. I guess sex does sell.

    Maybe for the sex mongrels, it can be effective but only in a one-time deal. I usually focus on content when I do read blogs and not on catchy but irrelevant photos. I usedsome sexy images before but where it was with relevance to the post.

    Admittedly, it is good for attention catching butif the content of the blog cannot hold the reader, the image is useless.

    Everyone is selling sex. Not only bloggers. Now that’s an excuse, right?

    I almost always put images in my posts. It helps the mind realize what it’s reading, if they are relevant images of course :)

    I like putting images in my posts but only if it’s relevant. As much as possible, I also like to use my own images although I have used images from flickr and other sources with proper attribution of course.

    Yes I do use ‘clean images’ within my posts as I see my ideas discussed into an integrated way of illustrations + writing.

    I always use images in posts. They are usually photos I have taken on my trips and relate directly to the post. Like it or not human beings are visual creatures and sometimes they pictures can convey more than the post itself.

    If I do have a picture that is relevant to the topic, I’d like putting one in my post. It creates a better post because there is a visual representation of the topic.

    Otherwise, I don’t post a picture, just for the sake of posting it.

    Thanks!

    Sometimes I use images, sometimes not. Our blog is pretty colorful as is – so for the sake of just doing it… no. But a good screenshot of the social media or internet marketing strategy we’re discussing often helps. In that case, yes. As for sexy pictures nope. However, yes sex is a huge draw online, maybe we’re missing out LOL!

    I always try to put an image in my posts. I think they just grab the readers eye and draws them into the article.
