hey @deairby there are a lot of responses on this thread i hope my answer doesn’t get too lost in the mix.
The most important and usually the only reason you want to use an image on your blog “besides visual appeal for readers” would be for Google.
Google likes images but the truth about images is, Google cannot see the image itself, they see the http://”whatever the link to that image is”.com
Your images on your blog become another source for google to to figure out what your site is all about.
How about that for some SEO…
Ever see the section where it says name your image? You can literally name your image when you submit it into your article (you will want to name the image your keyword you are trying to rank for.)
Quick tip: save the image file as your keyword, or something similar to the name of your keyword on your computer…
Then, when you upload the image to your server, the link to that image will have the keyword inside the URL.
