3 little blogging tips that will make a difference

1 - Make sure your blog has a search box

Nothing is more frustrating when I remember a past post from a blog that I want to re-visit. Only to find the blog doesn't have a search facility! Very frustrating having to trawl through the whole blog to find that one post and it usually ends in me giving up.

2 - Create a contact page with a visible, clickable email address

Contrary to popular belief this does not result in a lot of spam email (although do expect a little). It does however make a difference to the opportunities you will be offered. PR's can add your email address to their contacts list - they can't do this with a contact form and will simply move onto the next blog.

3 - Bloglovin

Most of us read blogs via bloglovin. It is frustrating when you stumble upon a lovely blog that you can't follow on bloglovin! It takes two minutes to sign up and add a badge to your blog. Bloglovin provides you with loyal, regular readers and to me it's a no-brainer!

  1. Fab tips and I agree with them all! I would also say people should test how their blogs work on their phone too as often many are not phone compatible and their buttons or search box doesn't function on phone view which is how most people read blogs. Great post #thelist
