What makes you stop and read a blog post? Is it the headline or title? Do the words of the post grab your attention? Or is it the picture associated with the post. Maybe a combination.
Statistics show an image increases interest and a picture always makes things more appealing. Most web readers are accustomed to seeing images on a page and you don’t want to disappoint them.
So, let’s add a picture to a post. There are three really simple ways to do this. In this post, we will cover uploading an image.
Log into WordPress and click “Add New Post” or “Open” and already existing post you have saved.
After the blog post is written, click where you want to place your image and then click the “Add Media” button above the Write block in WordPress. You’ll get a popup box with several options. You’ll click the “Upload Files” option and follow these steps:
10. Save to draft.
11. Preview to see how it looks.
12 If it meets your approval, click “Publish.“
There, you have added an image to your blog to make it more pleasant to view and garner interest.
Next, we will discuss adding an image via your media library.
