I mentioned the other day that I’m going to move my blog, probably this weekend.
I wanted to find out what kinds of things you like & dislike on the blogs you read (and write!).
I have some diverse interests in the blog world, so I come across a number of different things, but the diet blogs are generally pretty similar.
I am going to go ahead and move now and design it into something I like later, because I’ve already spent 2 months of intertia paralyzed by of the number of things I’d like to do (versus the limited time, knowledge and money I have to spend on it). I think I’ll have a lot more incentive to get the things done once I’m in the new location (like moving into a house with a bathroom you hate - every minute you spend there reminds you to get it fixed up!).
Feel free to comment with anything you want - but here are some ideas to spark your thoughts on what you love & hate about blogs you read :
- Mascots or other illustrations
- Organization - how many pages
- Ads & ad networks
- Featured posts
- Recent comments
- Dates on posts (necessary or not)
- Categories & tag clouds
And anything else you can think of - all input good, all opinions matter, but ultimately the blog I will produce has to serve ME first and foremost! Although I love the community aspect of blogging, fundamentally I blog for myself most of all…
