Now, I don’t want to toot IFB’s horn too much here, but we’re always encouraging you guys to get creative, think outside the box and try new things. Over the summer, we wrote a post about trying out new mediums on your blog, things like street style photos, video content and – you guessed it – animated .gifs!
While the Tumblr-sphere is full of .gifs ranging from cats eating pizza to models on the runway, you didn’t see too many on fashion and personal style blogs – until recently! I’ve seen so many fun and whimsical .gifs that add personality and originality to your blog content. To get an idea of how you can incorporate an animated image into your posts, I rounded up some examples I’ve seen on IFB community blogs recently:
Katherine of The Style Tab used a .gif to show off how to style one holiday dress a bunch of ways.
Julia from Gal Meets Glam made a sweet .gif of her and her husband for Thanksgiving.
For Halloween, Liz of Say Yes to Hoboken made a cute and quirky .gif of a fun costume idea.
So now I bet you’re saying, but Taylor, I don’t know how to make a .gif! That’s okay, because we have a post that will teach you how in 5 Easy Steps or Less! Now get giffing!
