Make quote images to share on Pinterest

Make images of quotes for your articlesThese days with the rise of Pinterest it's more important than ever to include images in your online content. One way to do this simply is to make quote images. This image is known as a "pull-quote".

Pinterest is now the third biggest social network (after Facebook and Twitter) and yet and so don't get as much traffic to their posts from Pinterest as they should. Now there is a new tool to help bloggers increase their Pinterest traffic - ProQuoter.

ProQuoter allows you to easily create beautiful quote images of pull-quotes for your articles. Pull-quotes have an amazing ability to draw the reader's attention. They can turn a dull piece of text into an incredible visually stimulating article. If you don't have any exciting images to spice up your article then they can be even more important.

When writing articles, it is important not to have blocks of dense, impenetrable text. The human eye is drawn to space and color and it can be just as important as the actual text.

Pull quotes also offer an important way to highlight the key message of a piece of text - the 'take-aways'. You can even include actual quotations in your pull-quotes as long as they support your message.

With the rise of Pinterest having attractive images in your writing is even more important. If you can include inspiring, or funny quote images in your writing then people are more likely to share them on Pinterest which will bring more people to your blog entry. Pinterest even has a special category just for quotes, and many people on Pinterest will have a specific board for inspiring, interesting, or humorous quotes.

How to create and add a beautiful pull quote image to your WordPress blog entry

A picture is worth a thousand words but a picture with words is worth two thousand

When including images it's always good practice to include the text of the quote in the alt tag. This will ensure that Google uses the text as well and will also get your image included in Google image searches as well to make sure that you get even more traffic to your blog posts. It takes less than a minute to create a beautiful pull-quote image and you'll be rewarded for it.

    My favorite place to go is Busch Gardens. I enjoy going to Busch Gardens because it has exhilarating water rides and roller coasters, various themes in Africa that you can explore, and adventurous safari rides. I have always loved going to Busch Gardens ever since I went last year with my family. I loved the water rides and the roller coasters! My two favorite rides at Busch Gardens are Sheikra and Cheetah Hunt. They are both invigorating and fun to ride on. Each time you go, the rush always gets you to scream or shut your eyes tightly. Despite the long lines, it will be worth the wait once you get on the roller coaster. They are fast and scary at first, but once you get used to them, they are not as scary as before. I also like riding Montu and Kumba. Both of those rides will make you dizzy in an instant once the ride is over. I nearly tumbled over after my first ride! My favorite water rides were the Congo River Rapids and the Stanley Falls (or the log ride). Whenever I went on those rides, I would leave completely drenched. Gwazi was the first roller coaster I went on when my family first arrived at Busch garden. After one ride on Gwazi, I was crying and praying to God that I would not get sick or have to go on the ride again. My mom and my dad had different experiences though. My mom was laughing like a little kid during the ride while my dad screamed like a little girl. Sadly, my little sister did not get to experience Gwazi because of her height and age. My dad, mom, and I all agreed that it felt as if our stomach dropped. Before we got on the ride, we all had wild thoughts as if something horrible would happen. We all thought that everyone who had their hands up in the air were crazy! My second favorite thing about Busch Gardens is the Safari Rides. They are so much fun! I enjoy riding along with other passengers eager to learn more about the fascinating animals at Busch Gardens. My favorite animals to look at on these jungle safari rides are the Giraffes, Cheetahs, and the Zebras. I enjoy hopping on the train and getting to see the animals as well. The conductor and two guides talk about each animal, their habitat, information about their offspring, and other sites at Busch Gardens during the ride. Sky trails are also one of my favorite ways to visit the animals. You are soaring in the air above all of the exotic species, ride attractions, and people in Busch Gardens. It is a fun experience and I enjoy riding it. The Safari rides are extremely educational and informational. They teach you many things and are a fun and easy way to get to know more about the park and the animals! Finally, my favorite theme about Busch Gardens is its multiple themes in Africa. They have multiple themes like Egypt, Timbuktu, Morocco, the Congo, Nairobi, and the Safari of Fun (for the younger children). My favorite place to visit is Timbuktu. There are many rides and games like Scorpion, Sandstorm, the Carousel Caravan, Sultan’s Arcade, and many others. You can also find a large food court called the Desert Grill Restaurant, and a 4D Theater called the Timbuktu Theater. It features short PG movies with outstanding sound and realistic animations. Busch Gardens is a very fun place to visit and I cannot wait to go there again and experience the rush of all the roller coasters. Busch Gardens is a great place to go if you want to have lots of fun! I enjoyed it and I would recommend it to anyone who likes adventures and roller coasters.
