Newspaper headlines are not complete without images.
Magazines don't publish work of authors, without illustrations.
And I submit that Expertscolumn is not complete without pictures in the columns its authors that publish them.
I know it's extra revenues to infuse there, but what the heck, the return of investment is surely well worth it, especially if the site is to be made physically attractive to the new owners? What is paramount is, the writers are most benefitted, and ultimately, the readers.
So if there's a will to do it, to incorporate images and videos into our column, the time is ripe for the administrator to do it NOW instead of the new administrator gaining credit for that. I do not mean that I cherish the thought of Nik clinching the sale, however!
The fact is, Expertscolumn, must somehow, embrace the idea of having these features of images and videos being a final mainstay in the work of us authors.
And Nik cannot forever dispel this overwhelming clamour. Because should he decide to remain at the helm, amid the auction he set in motion, he will have ultimately gave in to this long standing request by the majority of writers, no doubt.
Why not accede to those requests now?
