So when I first started blogging, I freaked out because my website took 8 seconds to load.
EIGHT WHOLE seconds.
That’s detrimental to SEO rankings. And seriously, for consumers, ain’t nobody got time fo’ that.
(Also, I forgot to mention, if you’d like to check our your site speed, click here.)
So I did some research and I realized that big pictures were a huge problem.
And since content new needs to be visually appealing with at-least-decent graphics to make the run, you see my dilemma.
Then I was faced with another problem: how in the world do I embed my pictures?
I scoured the internet and pieced together information to finally figure it out how to do embed pictures into my blog posts using dropbox ( and all fo’ free! Weee!)
So I hope this short and quick tutorial is helpful for you and upload time!
