Formatting tip - How to conserve pages


Blogs that have hundreds of posts are obviously going to cost more than those that have less, but with this tip about writing captions for your pictures, you can save pages (and money) in a post that's mostly pictures.

KEEP YOUR CAPTIONS SHORT

By keeping your captions less than 6 words I can fit up to 9 photos on a page. If you write 2 paragraphs that will only make sense if the photo is right next to the description, then I will be forced to put 2-3 pictures on each page so there is enough room for text. Multiple posts like this can make your book more expensive than it needs

to be.

The othe
r option is to
SKIP CAPTIONS ENTIRELY - WRITE YOUR POST FIRST AND THEN
INSERT PICTURES AFTER
What I mean by this is, if you want to describe each picture, make the captions flow into each other so they can be combined into a paragraph.
This saves
space by making it possible for me to layouts like this that maximize the space for text. I have 70 different layouts at my disposal and I do my very best to use the ones that make the most of the space without compromising the design.


If you are a veteran blogger and know that many of your posts do not comply with this advice - that's ok. I can still make you a beautiful book!




This tip is mainly for those who are just getting started and know that down the road they want to publish their book - either on their own or hire me to do it.
