Review

This is one of the best how-to books I've read on both blogging and using images in blogs. Terri's experience as a teacher clearly shines as she organizes the book in a step-by-step fashion with great tips, both the do-this, and the don't-do-this! She uses images throughout to illustrate her points, which gives a visual representation of the information. Along with instructions on the skills of blogging, she includes recommendations for social media sites as a tool for getting that blog seen. In the final chapter, she includes "a round-up of links and resources..." A great book for beginning bloggers as well as a fine resource for experienced bloggers.

About the Author

My name is Terri Webster Schrandt and I am a university educator and retired recreation and parks practitioner who decided to embark on writing a blog about it all. Happily married my second time around, I love to stand-up paddle, camp, write, work-out, read, and attempt to windsurf now and then.
I began blogging on WordPress in 2011 with the idea of sharing professional development topics. Discouraged and bored, once I got some direction and further focus, I re-branded in 2014 and started blogging on a consistent basis. I re-re-branded in 2015 to focus more on leisure pastimes and recreation. 
WordPress dot com uses the "Reader" to showcase recently published posts. This is when I noticed that some posts used images and some did not. Intrigued, I followed and read many posts. I found I was much more attracted to blogs that had an image attached to the post.
As a WordPress blogger, I participated in Blogging University "classes" which improved my writing and photography skills. Once I completed the Photography 101 class, I started taking photos of everything, just in case I needed it for a blog post.
Over time, I learned how to maximize the use of images on my blog posts, and became proficient at joining and participating in blog-oriented photography challenges.
I took a basic photography class in college; you know, the kind where students rented the camera for the semester and developed film in the darkroom?  It was then I knew I had an eye for composition, so it was natural that my interest in photography grew. 
Once I got a smartphone with Samsung camera technology and experienced the ease of uploading photos, the ability to always have a photo for a blog post became that much simpler.
However, you do not need to be proficient with photography or a camera to have your own images.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I am here to tell you a thousand words (in a blog post) are worth a picture!
