I have to try the bolding - I saw that you did that to my article this week, and I LOVED it. But oh, how I struggle with keeping it short. I just love words!!! {grin}

I break up a ton of text with photos!

Oh goodness, I am such a rambler! I already do the bolding and italicizing naturally, but I probably should try to add it in a bit more on purpose. You're so right about people not having the time. I would love to read a lot more entire posts, but having a toddler...forget about it!

I barely have enough time to get my own posts up some days, let alone read others. I try to keep up with my favorite blogs because I want them to know I appreciate them. But, I'll tell you what...I definitely seem to stick around for the posts that are broken up, and have nice pictures. Nice pictures make for happy readers too, I think. They make me happy at least, haha!

Have a great weekend ladies!

great stuff, as always. those tips work. i've been doing that myself lately.  it's hard to read a long post written in one huge paragraph. 

I agree- I am always interupted by the littles when reading posts... so spacing, bolds and smileys help me keep track of where I am when I return.

Thanks- As usual Sarah Mae.... ps. love the pin!!!  :)

Great advice Sarah Mae :)

I wish more bloggers knew these tricks! Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge. The pin is just gorg!

This is so true...I hate when people throw 1000s of words at me in big bulky paragraphs.  If I want that, I'd read a textbook!
