Links Á La Mode & A Visit To The Chateau

It has been another crazy week in the world of North On Harper.  But that is a good thing, right???  Anyways, this week I had the pleasure of getting together with the fabulous Kristy of Full Time Fabulous and Stephanie from The Loudmouth.  Both ladies wrote lovely posts on the get together— so please check them out!

Also, I wanted to include the Links Á La Mode feature from Independent Fashion Bloggers. I am such a big proponent of this weekly roundup.  There are always great posts to read and I am sure you will find a few that you love as well….  Oh!  And don’t you worry- NoH Does will be up this afternoon!!!

YOUR BLOGS PERFECT ACCESSORY: BRILLIANT PICTURES

Edited by Denimology

 

As I was selecting my posts for this weeks Links A La Mode, I realized how important it is to have attractive and original images in your posts. I noticed that I would open a post and close it promptly if the images looked rather….. what’s the word… meh.

 

Here is how to have your blog posts chosen by me [Denimology] for LALM:

  • Images Are The Main Course — A great image will draw in your reader. The image might be beautiful, odd, heartwarming, instructive or just curiosity-provoking,  so long as it keeps the reader wanting to read your post.
  • Don’t Forget To Use an Image — It’s better to use a generic image than no image at all but ultimately your image should represent what the subject of your post is about.
  • High Quality Images Are Best — We’ve all heard the saying “Pictures speak  a thousand words”, but in the blogging world they speak even more.  Adding HQ pictures to a blog post will visually stimulate your readers and help them identify with you, the writer.
  • Resize Your Images — While images can make your blog looked polished and professional, having images that hang over into the margins or that are cut off is sloppy blogging.
