  1. Think carefully before deciding to watermark your blog/website images. Maybe it is more critical to watermark certain ones than all of them. Though it's not intended to, watermarking can cause your readers to feel like outsiders, when THEY are who you are writing for.

  2. It can be annoying to read a blog or website where every image is watermarked. You can feel like you are looking around and through the text on each image.
