WHO ARE YOU BLOGGING FOR? PART 2
If blogging for your readers, stop and think about them.
Do you want your readers to enjoy visiting your site, reading your blog posts, and for them to return again?
Have you considered the following:
• Annoying pop-ups asking your readers to sign up for your newsletter – Get rid of those! Put an email sign up on your sidebar or at the top or bottom of the page!
• Aggravating pop-up ads all over the page or ads that overlap the text content – No one wants to see that mess, seriously!
• Posts/pages that take forever to load due to pop-ups and ads, images that aren’t optimized, poor server performance, excessive plugins, unnecessary redirects, etc. – I have high speed cable internet, as well as a custom built desktop computer and laptop that are both supercharged, lightning fast! However, on some sites I just have to give up as they take forever to load. You can do better, you really can!
• Tiny, light-colored, or fancy font, all of which are hard to see and read – If your eyesight is good, you’re so fortunate but not everyone has good eyesight, not even if they wear contacts or glasses. This is so obvious!
What can you do to improve your site of these annoyances? If your site has none of these aggravations then you’re ahead of the game!
