There Are Boobs at the End of This Post.

7 Apr

I’m going to move like a mad woman now.

You know, if I had my way, I would just put up a post without a picture.  But absolutely everything I read says people want pictures.  People are more likely to check out your page if you include a picture.

It makes sense.  I agree.  I mean, it’s like like I’m J.D. Salinger over here.  Words alone will not suffice.

But I can’t help but fight against it because it just takes so darn long to find one.  At least, it used to.    I’ve been spending all this time crawling the web for images that are easily credited, community property, and somehow relevant to my posts.  Even if I have an awesome writing day and it takes me 20 minutes to whip up a post, I usually double the amount of time just in the search for appropriate images.   You know, because you people want pictures and things and I try to sometimes care about your needs.

That’s right: I do it for you.

But my problems are finally coming to an end.    So don’t worry – you don’t need to feel like I’m the one putting all the work into our relationship anymore.

Yesterday I decided to wander back to a comment I left on a WordPress postaday2011 blog post about how the most time-consuming part of blog writing is the picture finding part.    It seems I left this comment and never really intended to wander back…because I never even thought about it until yesterday when I found myself in the same dilemma.  As it turns out, people had lots of awesome suggestions.  There’s a whole slew of image search engines out there with an option to only search for baggage-free images.

Well I’ll be.

So get ready folks, because I’m super equipped now.  I’ve got all the tools I need.  No longer will I write posts about Puppy Amusement Parks and spend half an hour just looking for a picture of a bunch of dogs leaping through the air.  No longer will I write about pole-dancing and spend my time weeding through dirty, gross pictures just to find something to help ya’ll with your need for visual stimulation.

You know, if I was really a people-pleaser, I would write some scandalous title and put pictures of hot chicks on every post too.  Because lemme tell ya – those posts are totally hits.  You all like boobs.  And dirty words.

I’m just stating facts, people.

    Would you share some of your favorite picture sources? I usually use my own images, but sometimes I don’t have the quite the right thing – and in those cases, I’ve run into the same issues you did! And yes, those are indeed boobs. I wonder how many people scrolled down to see them before reading the post?

    I would love to know what search engines you use. I hate looking for pictures. For the record, don’t Google Image Search “Big Butt Runner” at work.

    P.S. Take that picture of my tits down immediately.

    I honestly read the whole post before getting to the boobage.
    That lady should have worn a larger necklace. The tiny diamond makes her cleavage look like the grand canyon. Or maybe that’s what she was going for.

      haha I love that you say that as if it required self-control on your part. And you’re totally right about the necklace.

    Also, I find that using my own pictures or making my own images is the best way to go! [sorry bout the double post]

      I wish I could do that but I don’t have the time. I wish I could just Google Image and use whatever I want as long as I credit them but that’s not really a safe way to go about things. Since I don’t make money from this site, I don’t think it should matter, but hey… whatever. 🙂
