    Great info, thank you. I try to do most of these but there’s a couple of new things I should be better about addressing in my blog, like the popular posts feature. Thanks again.

    Jeff, these are great points. For some reason your website is not graphically appearing well on my computer. I’ve triple checked – it’s not my computer, so you must have something wrong with your blog site. FYI.

    Thanks, Shawna

    There are so many efforts to really make a successful blog it is important that as many of these efforts above are identified on your own blog.

    I very much enjoy my daily online readings, especially the short whitty posts. No need to stretch a subject, unless of course your a ‘story teller’!!

    There are a couple of issues I have with this list. It assumes that the blog author is established (ie: awards, credentials, etc.). Most unknown bloggers in, for example, the lit field, are without such things and should not be discredited based on this criteria.

    Building a fan base has to start somewhere. Credentials and awards come later with recognition.

    Another issue with this post is the cliche of “Top (insert number here)” lists. They are a turn off for me. What attracted me to this particular post was “Blog Mistakes,” not top 10.

    I agree and employ the rest of the techniques mentioned in the article, however.

      Here’s a tip:
      The 2 rows of menu links at the top of every page seem like just a single line of text/links. What I mean to say is you need to space the links apart so that its clear to distinguish between them. You have all the links in Uppercase and no clear spacing between them, making it hard to read.

      If you do not know how to do this, then I can provide you with a solution. Just paste the following code into your theme’s CSS file and that should take care of it. Feel free to adjust the numbers if you feel like it & let us know if this helps you.

      #crosscol-wrapper ul li { padding-right: 10px; padding-left: 10px;}#crosscol-wrapper2 ul li { padding-right: 10px; padding-left: 10px;}

     It was brilliant advices and I’m really now changing some of these mistakes in my blog. But I want to add a new mistake:

    The design of blog: It should be attractive, easy navigation and comfortable to the eye. There are a lot of bloggers who ignoring this point.

    But you really added more value of some conceptions in my mind.

    More than Thanks Jeff.

    Very good article. The main point is to have quality content in an eye-pleasing format. Reading an article online is a lot different than reading one in a magazine, where a lot of text is fine. On a computer screen, text which isn’t broken up into shorter paragraphs or bullet points is pretty hard on the eyes.

    Drawing readers in beyond the first sentence or paragraph is what good sub-titles do.

    This is great. I am a huge fan of the ‘bullet points’. With such a huge amount of content put in front of us on a daily basis, bullet points make it easy to digest information quickly. And most of the time they have just as much of an impact as an entire paragraph. Good read!
