If you’re active on social media or enjoy reading blogs, you will no doubt be aware of the popularity of quotes.
There is something about quotes that people find inspiring, motivating and worthy of sharing.
Perhaps they are a good pick-me-up when times get tough, or maybe they remind us of the meaning behind our everyday routine.
Whatever the case, quotes can be powerful. They are also fun to weave into your blog posts to back up your thoughts, provide alternative viewpoints or encourage readers to reflect. Quotes can help you begin or end your blog post with impact.
