Hi guys, welcome to Book Munchies’ Musing about Things: A Discussion (Post). Inspired by memes such as Should Be Reading‘s Musing Monday & Caffeinated Book Reviewer‘s Caffeinated Confessions (etc.), this is a Book Munchies discussion post, where I’ll be rambling about (mostly) book-related things and hopefully you guys will join in on the fun too (:
Today’s topic is: the use of .gis (in reviews, posts, etc.)
If you’re not sure what a .gif is, its – “a lossless format for compressing image files.”, basically an animated/moving series of images. People like to use them in an assortment of manners, usually to express an emotion or thought. Or for me at least:
Oh did you know that there are 6 universal emotions that transcends culture – happiness, sadness, angry, surprise, fear and disgust. /end fun fact.
I think there’s usually a big debate on the use of .gif in post. As of lately, I decided that they’re super fun and I enjoy using them in my posts and seeing them in other peoples. Though I know at the same time, there’s some who don’t like using or seeing them much. For me, .gifs are a lovely way to express things I can’t in words. I’m not a very eloquent writes so .gifs definitely help explain my love, hatred, enjoyment, etc. It’s like adding visuals to my thoughts.
The only problem is…sometimes I waste too much time looking for the perfect .gif, or you know just looking at all them because they’re hilarious.
If you read my reviews, you’ll recognize this as my favourite .gif (:
And What The Duke Desires by Sabrina Jeffries was my first review that had .gifs, which featured the awesome Richard Armitage because he’s awesome, haha.
Anyway, what are your guys thoughts on using ,gif? Yay? Nay? Minimal? What’s your favourite .gif?
