Adding some pretty little images to your Fargo posts

This is just a test of using an image via the glossary. Recently I discovered a handy little site called lorempixel.com. It's a great resource if you are working on a web project and need some quick and easy placeholder images. It's also a great example of what Dave said about how to make money on the internet. You're not going to get rich with an idea like this, but it's a nice simple strategy that solves a problem for web developers. And in turn, they can run some ads directed at web devs.

The cool thing about lorempixel is that you use HTML to generate an image based on whatever height/width you want, and whatever category you choose (landscape, sports, people, etc.) For this example I set it to 150 x 150 pixels and gave it the abstract category. I also added the img-circle class (Bootstrap! FTW). Then I dumped that into my glossary and called it "pic." Each time I post something I can add a pretty little flourish to it.
