    Do you enjoy themes with background images or do you find them distracting? Maybe it depends on the image and the blog. Some are subtle, so I think they work. Sometimes, the really “busy” backgrounds distract me from the content.

    Sometimes I like to have a background. It really depends what site I have.

    I like to have background. It is more appealing to the eye.

    I like colored backgrounds to break up the page. I just find some of the ones with images to be a little too much sometimes.

    Much depends on the computer I’m using. If the computer has enough memory to display an image-heavy site smoothly, the graphics don’t bother me. Most computers don’t have enough, really, because ads and cookies eat up so much working memory. So I’m almost duplicitous…as long as a relevant image works with the computer I’m using I’ll comment on and even link to the pretty pictures, but when graphics start clogging the browser I’ll stop visiting the site; I’m more likely to read regularly if a site uses only a few, small, relevant graphics. And NO moving video or audio content.

    it really depends on the article posted. background images on the sides are okay but not in the middle of the article

    I like a non distracting background.Sometimes I find free images on Pixabay.com to use on web pages. It’s an easy to use image site.

    I prefer a blank background or something with a very light color – maybe something pastel. I find other backgrounds too loud or unprofessional looking.

    It depends with the background. Sometimes, I prefer simple background like plainly white.

    It depends, if I’m in a mood for it…I have blogs with and without them…if the stock options are good I’ll go with those unless they’re absolutely hideous!

    Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t. A good picture can stress what the blog is about, but it isn’t always needed.

    It really depends on what your blog is all about. I always use cat backgrounds for my blogs haha.

    I have put up an Autumn background in my Expat Life site. It looks good.

    Nice. Autumn can be so beautiful. I love the changing colors. That sounds like a pretty background.
