re: Do gifs bother you when reading an article? VIEW POST


One of the things to remember about some of the articles that end up here is that they're the result of article mirroring. In my case, anything that I post to my Blogger/BlogSpot tech-blog gets mirrored here. While there are many people that are writing for others to read, there's likely just as many that are writing solely for themselves - others' reading is more a side-effect of search engines finding your open-published page.

For people falling into that latter group, what's important is how readable/memorable an article is to the author an not "some rando". =)

That said, I generally eschew graphics in blog posts (unless there's really, really, really no other way to succinctly convey a concept). Though I am way guilty of making Slack channels look like Geocities had a seizure.


I tend to forget that some people do write for themselves. An interesting point, thanks.
