RE: Wordless Wednesday

I am posting this little commentary here mostly to ask a question…a debate I am having with myself. Any comments are welcome!

I keep asking myself if “WORDLESS Wednesday” doesn’t imply no words. I think it does. Myself, on the other hand, is more influenced by others who post with a title. So we disagree on this not-so-very-important subject.

It would seem that the image would inspire comments and it might be interesting to see those comments, unaffected by any title given. Reality seems to be that many of we bloggers don’t really have time, or take time, to comment…just hit the like button. That is ok with me…I get it! However, I reiterate, if I tell you something about my picture, will you be swayed to see it my way?

I will give an example and hope he doesn’t mind. If you don’t follow Norm, you would find him interesting and witty. His post today is titled “Love Your Earrings.” That drew me in, I was very curious to see what he had posted. If I go look at his picture without the title, what might I have noticed first?

Just a silly little thing that I spend too much time wondering about. What do you think?

Happy blogging!

One thought on “RE: Wordless Wednesday

  1. I don’t think there is a right or wrong answer to this. Either philosophy can work just fine. It depends more on personal preference than anything else: leave it to your viewer to draw their own conclusions, or directing their attention/perception by giving a title – whatever feels right.
    I say you should follow your gut on this one.
    Either way, thanks for the shout-out 🙂
