Two Reasons My Blog Content is Entirely Text

If you haven’t noticed, my blog has no photos. What sort of blog has no photos???

One that uses text as art.

For what seemed like the longest time, I agonised over whether or not to incorporate photos into my content. With my super busy schedule, my only resource was time to write. Cloud space for a gazillion photos was definitely an option, yet still I didn’t have time to stage books with props for every single blog post.

I wanted to be consistent with my writing, and I could do that as long as I didn’t have to add photos. I looked at other book blogs for beautiful layouts, and even did a Google search for “blogs without photos” in the hopes of finding one that would give me permission to create one as well.

In the end, I decided to do my own thing. YAY! Which brings me to reason #1…

I love using text as art.

Replacing photos with crazy fonts was the best idea ever!

I promise to use these crazy fonts sparingly.

It’s fun to represent emotions and get my point across with text. Seriously. You can convey so much meaning, and I’d argue you can do this to a greater extent with text than with photos. And now for reason #2…

It gives me more time to brainstorm and write!

I’m not incessantly looking for a place to stage a photo of a book, especially when folks can just Google the title and see a pic. Not to mention I’m being super careful about copyright laws. Instead, I can spend that precious time fleshing out my ideas about a book I’ve read or a story I’m creating.

You know something? I’ve found my voice with this style. It’s my speed.
