Being a visual artist, I truly believe images and graphics in communications work to deliver a more complete message than text alone. That's not to mean that text alone cannot (or does not) have the potential for exceptionally weighty and informative stuff. Let's face it, where would we be today without novels, printed periodicals and informative blogs and, dare I say, textbooks (you wouldn't even know fully what I'm trying to communicate with THIS message). Which leads me back to my original point... including images and graphics.
The greater impact of images and graphics in text is made abundantly clear in many of the other blogs here on the web. One can't help but be drawn to the message when there is an image or graphic that accompanies it. Interestingly, I have not always followed the include-image/graphic-with-text habit that I am currently espousing. Perhaps you have not either. I, for one, am going to try to follow this rule in my future blogs.
To further help get my "messages" across more completely with images, when you have time, please visit my other pages here on this site and/or visit the sites I've linked to this text.
