Real Estate Website Uses Kitten GIFs to Attract Readers. Good Idea!

A still from a very good YouTube video about getting your cat to go on a diet.

The Llenrock Blog about commercial real estate already has its work cut out for it in attracting readers who aren’t in the biz. And when it comes to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, it’s even harder. In fact, even Llenrock blogger Eric Hawthorn “quickly become[s] bored by conversations on the subject.”

But he feels compelled to write about the two GSEs due to some, um, like, important developments…and…actually, we don’t want to talk about the GSEs either. We just want to show you how Hawthorn chose to make the conversation “more palatable to your average, easily bored reader.” With kitten GIFs!
