    Agree about the Block Quote point. It does stand out from rest of the article and can get more attention than a bold face text.

    And engaging on the social platforms is not an option anymore, it’s a must do activity!

    I think most important thing is the Headline and content that fetch more readers, The blog should be more attractive and you need to be put effort for regular updation.

    I’ve noticed that posts that relate to what’s going on at the moment get the highest shares and readers… i.g. events, politics… oh and of course pictures of coffee and sunset. :)

    Facts are great though, I need to incorporate that more. thanks.

    Thanks Jeff. I always enjoy reading your blog. I’m going to work the Quotable Quotes idea into my next blog post. I’m curious, though. Did I miss how the photo ties into this post?

      I hope the Quotable Quotes idea works for you! And the photo is a visual for making sure you write a colorful opening, hence the colored pencils. :)
