Hi, I'm Bethany and I'm a .gif addict.
In the last few months, I've become completely addicted to GIFS. Not because they're a
lazy busy writer's BFF when it comes to whipping out a blog post, but because there's some great imagery clogging up the Internet and sometimes a perfectly-placed visual is the BEST way to make a word come to life.
For example, if I wanted to say I was happy that today is Friday, I could simply say,
But wouldn't it be more impactful if I attached this little number to that statement?
Now you KNOW how happy I am, right?
Or, in this case, I could tell you I was feeling blue because I stubbed my toe last night while taking out the trash. This might tug on your heartstrings for about half a second, but that's nothing compared to the emotions this visual will conjure up:
Whoops, that's the image I searched on for 'train wreck'.
I meant this one: *apologizes*
See...you're feeling something now aren't you?!
And it gets even better!
If you're not feeling these GIFS, then your heart is frozen and the cold never bothered you anyway...
But if you're an emotion-driven being like the good Lord intended you to be, then you'll not only support my love of GIFS but you'll embrace it yourself.
