I try to check out each of your blogs every month as part of my regular maintenance of the site. We will be giving the site a face lift very soon along with a lot of new features.
Did you know that you can change your blog template? My wonderfully hubby chose a beatiful default theme for our users but as many of you have already discovered, there are many more to choose from. We have enable a large selection of themes that my husband has checked out, in which all the features offered actually work.
Be sure to check out the alternative templates.
The landing page will be changed and look significantly different very soon. Be sure to explore the site and features. I know you will be pleased and amazed. If you want your blog to be seen, you need to post as often as possible; daily is ideal but even weekly will improve your search engine presence.
A few additional tips today:
- Space is good – break up your posts into paragraphs. Using smaller paragraphs makes online reader much easier on your readers. Believe it or not many people have trouble reading long articles with no breaks.
- Use sentence case type. Authors who write in all caps are considered YELLING, in the online world. I personally think those who write in all lower case are simply too lazy to use good writing habits. Both are hard on your readers.
- Keep it short. The ideal blog post is between 500 to 800 words. That’s not to say they can’t be longer or shorter but you should target your blog for this range for maximum readablity.
That’s it for day. Keep writing. I’ll have more tips for you next week.
