Solidarity with France

Like many, I’m devastated by the news of the recent terrorist attack in Nice, France. I’m limited in what I can do, so I’m showing my support in the simplest way I can: blogging. Here’s a photo of one of my most prized possessions: a 2-franc piece from 1959 (incidentally, the year Barbie first debuted!) that I inherited from my grandma. I’ve flipped it over to display the French national motto, “Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité,” and mounted it in a locket that I think will display it better than my hand would.

The Photo Quality Conundrum

I compressed all the photos on my previous posts to make them more mobile-friendly. Now I’m starting to regret that decision because the compressed photos are of lower quality than their uncompressed versions. I’m soliciting feedback from you, my readers, in the hopes of making an informed decision: Would you prefer 1)  posts with high-quality photos or 2) mobile-friendly posts with lower-quality photos?

Here’s how this is going to work: My next few posts will all have high-quality photos so that you can compare the high- and low-quality photos. Then I’m going to need you to leave the number of your opinion, 1 or 2 above, underneath this post.

Let me know what you think, and thanks for your opinions!
