This is excellent advice from Chris, The Story Reading Ape! Thanks so much Chris for this recommendation.
Even if your blog theme doesn’t require it, WordPress recommends you include at least one image in your posts.
I’d further recommend you include a Featured Image (see the categories, tags, featured image options before you schedule or publish).
This will not only enhance your excellently written post, but when the post is reblogged, or uploaded to other media, (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, etc), it will appear and enhance those shares as well.
