I’ve been thinking a lot lately about this subject. Why do we “read” blogs? Do you actually read through posts with a lot of writing? Or do you skim over them? Or do you skip them entirely? Maybe the posts you are interested in ‘reading’ are the ones filled with pretty images?
Either way, there is no right or wrong answer. Everyone is of course entitled to enjoy whatever their heart so pleases. I just want to know what your thoughts are on this. Which one do you prefer, words or images? Do you read or do you look?
I used to be just a looker. Images, images, images. I couldn’t get enough. I would rather have a post filled with nothing but images than one single image with paragraphs to read. Or if a post included both a lot of images and a lot of words, I would skip over the words and just look at the images.
But you know what? I think I was missing something. There is so much beauty that can be found in people’s writing. I don’t know when I started reading posts, maybe because I got so interested in reading Elsie’s story as she was opening her vintage store. Now I find myself actually looking for posts with a lot of words because I want to learn people’s stories. I still love seeing pretty images of course, I’ll never get tired of that. But I’ve come to appreciate both.
So which one do you prefer?
