My latest post with photos, ‘A Natural look at Beetley’ drew a large audience, and a very large amount of views. It exceeded anything else I have posted so far this year,and was pleasingly popular. Once again, I was reminded of the popularity of images on a blog post.
I can see from the stats, that any photo post exceeds a text post by at least 30%. The last one beat my best previous post this year, by over 40%. I am beginning to conclude that the many hours spent mulling over text posts are less well-received than photos, and starting to wonder if a dedicated photography blog is the way forward.
Of course, that won’t happen. Writing is what I am about, and photos must always play second fiddle to pictures, as a rule. I am not complaining, you understand. If readers enjoy the photos, then I am more than happy. It is just that I feel that I have a lot more to say. The old adage is that, ‘a picture is worth 1,000 words.’ That would appear to hold true, to this day.
To make everyone happy, the better weather will certainly generate more posts including photos. But be aware that there will be as many text-based posts too. Because fundamentally, writing is what I do.
