3 Reasons Why You Should Check out Pictures of Puppies, Kittens and Cute Animals
Like anyone starting a site I took a look at what was already out there. All of the self-development websites looked the same. Stock pictures of happy people: a woman in a field throwing leaves in the air, etc. To me, it was all very generic. I didn’t want that. We need something different.
Wanting to focus on the quality of the content, ideally I would not have any pictures at all. However, I quickly found out that a site can look pretty boring without pictures. I was stuck. I needed something to grab my readers attention, but not take away from the writing. Hmmm.
There was much contemplation and I tried a lot of different directions — if you have been following the site you may have noticed all of the edits. Then, the answer came to me… puppies!
Eureka! It was so simple yet so genius.
- Not only are puppies and kittens super cute and adorable, it has been proven that looking at pictures of cute animals boosts mood and increases productivity. An interesting study on that here.
- Puppies will eliminate any feelings of comparison and let you focus on yourself and your improvement.
- It is just weird enough to be quirky and that is JUST my style.
Hope you enjoy the pictures of the cute puppies and kittens. I find they are making me smile as I edit the site. And remember to keep on keeping on. There are people out there who want you to succeed (I am one of them).
