Counting Windows.. Ties to Website?
I was reading one of my favorite business blogs the other day when the writer asked "how many windows does your house have?"
She then mentioned that most of us had gone through room by room to count them. Yep, that's what I did....mentally.
She then went on to point out that most brains are most comfortable in the visual mode. That's how most work. (I'm still raising my hand on that one)
There is a point, if you just hang on a minute longer...
All of this was to illustrate websites need to have photos on each page to hold the reader. It's not a sign of a lack of intelligence, but what interests and holds our brains. She said we can work on SEO and getting high in the google searches, but if we don't have photos, we'll lose the readers who do visit us.
So are you stalling on adding a photo to your CV page or bio? From her very valid and logical point, I say...go for it and add at least one. Add more. Keep the readers eyes traveling from one place to another.
That's my weekly passed on pearl of wisdom...If you grab enough, you'll be able to string a new necklace with your knowledge. And meanwhile...TGIF-
See you Sunday
ps I love this battered old house at the top. My hands ache to fix it up and make it beautiful again.
