Images can play a very important role in making a blog successful. Along with quality content, high-quality images can transform a normal blog into a premium quality blog.
Featured images are an unavoidable component of any blog these days because they attract the readers first, and then the quality of your content will keep them engaged.
Along with choosing the most appropriate images for your blog posts, how you place the images within the content flow defines the overall quality of the post.
Choosing the right image for your blog post can be difficult and time-consuming at times; the image you select has to make sense and go along with your content perfectly. The image should also be of good quality and free to use.
