Top 5 blogging tips

I blog about 5 years ago and at that time, I researched blogs, probably more than necessary. Today I will share my five favorite blogs tips and things I should keep in mind when starting a blog. I posted the top 3 in Blogging Tips & Tricks Forum where you can add more of your blogs very clean advice.

Tip # 1 – Choose a reading theme

This is extremely important. To ensure that people can read your blog, and preferably to do with it for more than 1 or 2 seats. My proposal for a top when it comes to readability of the text is to put a lighter background.

My biggest pet peeve is on a black background. It’s too much of a strain to read and often migrate from a second blog, I see a black background, because I know it’s not easy to read.

Tip # 2 – Blue links are the best

I once read that people are 56% more likely to click on a link that is blue. Probably because that was the original color of links, so it is familiar. Personally, I just do not click on the blue link, because it is not always clear that the other colors are clear links, which can be colored, underlined text, though I know …

Tip 3 – You have an About page or widget

Again, this is another one of those things that I can turn off the blog before I read the message. I do not want to read 10 or 12 posts to get an idea what it is, like Blogger, blog or whatever.

Many blog readers also seek to establish relationships with like-minded individuals, people they can relate to or have something in common with. Make it easy for them to find you by creating a side that tell your readers that everything is important to you.

Tip # 4 – Use it wisely Categories

You want people to be able to find the stakes are, who’s looking for, with ease. So six classes are easy to understand and almost directional in nature. Keep this in mind the same thing, when you add tags, because if you do not make sense, no one to look for them, and then nobody to find your blog!

Tip # 5 – Do not forget the grammar!

I know it sucks, but you must think about your grammar to write blog posts. I’m not saying it has to be perfect because I’m also a big fan of writing for yourself, and his newspaper, without limits, but when it comes to publishing your blog and then have people read it, questions of grammar!

Check your spelling before pressing the Publish button, read the messages aloud – at least yet – to ensure that you have written makes sense. And the worst comes to worst absolute, edit, after he was released to make the changes you may notice.

It’s always the things I think not only when I start a blog, but when I’m publishing the positions and when I read through old posts. These five tips will get well on your way to publish quality content for many readers. Tell people about your blog, make it easy for them to go where they might want to go, and above all, do read!

The above function checks the “source of reference” to the page where the comment in the post. In the case of spam in the comments, if the reference source found empty comments are not allowed to be published so as not to receive spam.

The plugin is recatcha well, but it has one major drawback. Commentators on your regular blog to fill Catcha trying to write a review. This may seem depressing or confusing to the visitor, and he can not refrain from comment altogether. Many popular blogs are using reCAPTCHA, but I’m not a fan of this plugin, because it might offend the regular commentators.
