30 thoughts on “The Biggest Reason You Need To Create A Blog Title Image

  1. Hi Lillian,

    Great post. I LOVE images and I try to make my posts rich with images, but I have to say I haven’t spent a lot of time thinking of my blog title image…. After reading your post I definitely will pay attention to this so that I can get noticed.

    Thanks for sharing this valuable information!

    1. Hi Monisha,

      SO many blog title image ideas going through my mind for your fashion blog! I see sparkles and glitter… LOL

      Definitely give it a try. I think you’ll do really well on Pinterest.

      Take care,

  2. Lillian,

    I can never miss a beat of one of your blog posts. I’m learning so much about images and as you know I’m a great fan of Canva.

    My big AHA moment here is to start keeping my images consistent. Ashley has his done in such a way you know it is him. So does Adam and Julie. I think it’s time for me to choose a layout that will remain consistent to each blog I put out. Now…trying to figure that one out lol

    I want something to reflect my brand.


    1. Hey Donna,

      Consistency is key! I’m loving the image on your blog post today. It totally reflects your personality!

      For me, I like the vertical positioning because of Pinterest shares and I wanted a clean look so that’s why I have a border with no photo. It is tough to figure out a style that fits you. Even if you just have a certain design element on the corners or certain types of photo backgrounds, you can make it your own. Play around and see what feels best. I’ll get into more detail with the next post.

      Take care,

    1. Hi Andrea,

      Don’t posts without images look so boring!! Glad to hear you’re doing title images.

      Take care,

  3. Hi Lillian

    Such an honor, thanks for including me. It took me a while to come to my branding realisation, but now that I am on track, I try to apply it everywhere. It really makes a difference. All you need is a standard font (although mine changes a little) and color, and you are good to go. Don’t forget the logo too! super important, and sometimes a background on it to make it stand out.

    Glad you are spreading the word, awesome stuff

    1. Hi Ashley,

      It’s my pleasure! I do like your distinct image and it really does get you noticed.

      Take care,


  4. Hi Lillian,

    Great post…always so much info and inspiration coming from you. I’ve used both horizontal, and vertical, though I do see the difference in attraction just from looking at the examples you’ve posted. I think I”ll probably go more for the vertical from now on for me. Images are usually what draw me to the post. Thanks so much for again, more great tips.

    1. Hi BG,

      Glad you stopped by! I’m so glad I can help. It really all depends on where your target market is on social media. If you have a lot of people on G+ and Pinterest, then vertical is definitely the way to go.

      Take care,

    1. Hi Erika,

      Thanks so much! I’m glad this post has given you some inspiration.

  5. Great point Lilian. I never thought about images for branding in that way. I have used Canva as well but certainly never been consistent. Might start putting some thought into that.

  6. Hey Lillian,
    Wonderful post … yes, creating a brand is not just about posting your name, but the graphics as well. Great post and made me think about my own branding… right now. LOVE the new blog! Looks great 🙂

    1. Hey Lesly,

      Thanks for the compliment about the new blog! Love my new internet home.

      Let me know what you come up with for your branding.

      Take care,

  7. Hi Lillian,

    Great post. There are just so many little things that we don’t think about and then meeting people like you who have such great ideas to share makes things so much easier.

    I’ve never really thought about vertical and have to admit I am stuck in the horizontal photo mode but will be looking to change that.

    Thanks again.

    1. Hi Monna,

      Really think about where you’d like your posts to be shared. Horizontal is fine and it really all depends on your preference.

      Take care,

  8. This post is so informative and interesting. I used some times Blog title image for my post , It was just that I like to present my post in this way .
    But I didn’t knew the important logic behind it.

    Thanks for sharing this, now I wil.l create blog title image for my every post.

  9. I see a lot of Pinterest images by fairly well-known bloggers, which are horizontal or square. I think the reason I like infographics so much is that there is so much packed into one, and they’re always visually pleasing with their mix of graphics and text. I didn’t know there was a better and not-so good way of adding graphics to my blog, but now you’ve given me something to think about.

  10. Great ideas on your NEW blog Lillian. Loves lovely. Nice and clean and simple look.
    Made me think about my own branding. Having a consistent look
    such as the colour etc. I recently had many different pics of myself and now only 5 with the same hair , shirt and background on all blogs and facebook pages. Would like to now work on vertical images only, great for Pinterest.
    Signed up for your Canva course. Thanks for the gift pics!

    1. Hi Kathryn,

      Thanks! I’m glad you like the new blog.

      I’m so happy this post got you thinking about your own branding. It’s really important to stick with the same images. Thanks for signing up for the Canva Course for Business! It will be launched June 8th! Super excited about it. 🙂

      Take care,
