I wonder… Personally I prefer to see everything with less effort. So a forum post with all the content in the actual forum post will for me, trump a forum post that links to a blog with all the content on the blog. I am that lazy/busy. So content here will be more likely to be seen by me than content I have to click on to get to. On a similar note, I am unlikely to click on a link to a blog that has no teaser pics in the forum to tempt me. Just a link rarely swings it for me. A forum post inviting people to go to a blog is an advert for that blog, and for me adverts work better with images. I hope that makes sense, I have not had breakfast yet and am running on coffee alone..
I’m the same. I always intend to go back and click the link but rarely seem to get around to it. Pictures aren’t a guarantee I’ll read it but are more likely to pique my interest enough that I do.
It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.
It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed,
That hands acquire shaking,
The shaking becomes a warning.
