When you stop by to read a review are you taking advantage of all the links and additional information at your fingertips? Caffeinated offers a wealth of information with each review designed for you the reader. I am going to show you what each link does to enhance your experience.
I recommend that if you own a blog or website you add a search box. Believe it or not it ranks in the top ten of pet peeves for readers. I recently hosted an event and used search buttons to find folks start up posts. I had hoped to comment and cheer them on. On some blogs I was forced to click older posts over and over, refresh after refresh..eek gads!
It’s the start of a new year and the perfect time to look over your blog, update your social media and catch up on any maintenance. We are often busy creating new posts, reading and making sure that are blogs are up and running, that we often forget to clean things up, make sure links are working and updating archives.
Today I thought we would chat about sidebars. It’s where we show a bit of our personality, maybe some fan pictures or blog love. I am not going to talk about cleaning it up, or the time load those images and widgets require, not to mention how they distract the eye. Or the fact that last years read-a-thon is still there …..you have heard it all. Today I am going to mention things that should be in your sidebar to help visitors.
Coming from blogger where labels are the norm I quickly had to learn the differences regarding tags and categories. I assumed fellow WordPress bloggers understood them but recently I had the chance to look under the hood of four WordPress blogs and was surprised by their categories and tags. So I decided to share what my research has learned, and what the experts recommends and help you clean house.
