Occasionally on a blog, a gif is better than a jpeg or png image
You probably associate an animated gif with social media.
They are usually for amusement value and are often small snippets taken from a YouTube video, or even from Instagram videos.
If it is only for fun, you can find thousands of them online if free gif libraries, so there is no need to create an animated gif yourself.
Perhaps if the subject of this post was about books that are real page-turners, I could add something like this.
I know it is not the most exciting gif ever made but is apt to show you that you can add one to a blog post on most blogging platforms.
If you use WordPress, you can load up a gif in the same way that you load all your images in the Image Editor.
