  1. Great post, Bekah! Yes, a featured image is SO important! It makes a post look way more interesting! I use Canva, and love it! BTW, I sent you an email a while ago about whether or not you still wanted to do a Collab with me. I’d love to still do one, and am now available to do it! πŸ™‚

    1. Also, I don’t know who the *heck* would pick NO FEATURED IMAGE as an option?!?! I hate not having featured images. The images help to describe the post, like a pre-post summary. Also, they give your reader an overall good feeling. Some blog themes don’t support a featured image that well, but I made sure to choose one that does πŸ’•
