This morning I have been surfing the internet about blogging tips, and I stumbled upon this article in http://www.incomediary.com. I think it would be insightful to many bloggers and aspiring ones who need more knowledge on how images could be a tool  in creating an attractive blog post, and how to do it.   Hope you will find this useful.

You shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. But that doesn’t stop millions of people from doing exactly that every day.

Everyone makes value judgments based on appearances. Unfortunately for me, that means I’ll probably never land a date with Adriana Lima (below).

It also means that simply having well-written articles on your blog isn’t good enough. A good blog post has to look good too — and that means using images to make your blogs stunningly beautiful.

How Beautiful Images Benefit a Blog

When you use quality images on your blog, readers associate your blog with that same level of quality. When you use dull or generic images not only will readers not click on your posts, they’ll also assume your content is dull and generic too. So use images that reflect how exciting, interesting, and beautiful you blog is (more on how to find those images below).

These types of high-quality images don’t just improve the perception of your website, but they increase its “stickiness” as well. Visitors are more likely to click on an article when the post image catches their eye or inspires a bit of curiosity.

Good images also help to make your post more likely to be shared on social networks. For instance, when someone shares an article on Facebook they have the option to choose one of the images contained on the page. If you want your content to go viral, you’d better make sure it contains some great images.

The Importance of Putting an Image Above the Fold

On most computer screens, the above image peeks just above the fold when this page loads. That means that every reader is guaranteed to see that there’s an image there — and almost every reader is going to scroll down and see what the image contains. Chances are, those readers are going to read the headline below the picture next… and so on and so on.

Simply convincing your viewers to begin reading and scrolling down is a big hurdle and it’s hugely important. It’s so important, in fact, that Michael asks that every single post on Income Diary have an image above the fold.

Does it work? Well you’ve read this far, haven’t you?

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation?
    My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any ways to help protect against content from being ripped off? I’d definitely appreciate it.
