I’ve seen GIFs used everywhere in the blogosphere. You just can’t miss it. Some people use it for their everyday posts while others use it for their book reviews. I, however, never use GIFs.
Why? I’m ashamed to say that I don’t know how to use GIFs. Well, no, I do know how to use GIFs (it’s called looking for a good GIF online, saving it, and waiting for the right moment to use it), it’s just I don’t want to.
Don’t get me wrong – I like GIFs. I love reading posts with GIFs used in it; it makes the post more entertaining to read about and more relatable. GIFs easily brighten up posts and it’s so fun to stare at them.
It’s just…I can’t bring myself to use any. I’m better with words than with using images, which is plain weird because images say a thousand words. Plus, there is also the fact that I’m lazy to look up the perfect GIF to fit my post. I don’t have a folder full of GIFs to use when the time comes (although I wish I do). Again, I’m too lazy to spend time online to look for the perfect GIF that my post calls for.
Do you use GIFs in your blog posts? Do you find them fun and easy to use?
