Making My Blog The Best It Can Be

picture three

Every day I blog, I try my hardest to think of ways to improve my blog and content. I have looked back over the years (yep, I said YEARS, I have been blogging since 2008!!!), and think I have come a LONG ways from where I use to be. I want that to be a good thing and for the most part it is!! But I do miss how I was so carefree and silly! I would like to be like that more, but fear I would not do as well as I am doing now. So, I tone it down a bit ;) There are tons of ways now, to engage readers and companies you would like to work with. One of the ways is with online conversion. This can help me understand you all, my loyals, and personalize your experience, by visiting my blog and yours truly... ME!!

Big companies do website testing, I am sure, and I can see why. It is great. It helps them to see the ever evolving needs of their … [Read more...]

computer

There are many and I mean MANY reasons why I will leave a blog as soon as I stumble on it. Below are 10 of my top most reasons for why I stop reading a blog and leave... 1. Small print... Please don't have such tiny print that even a person using a magnifying glass won't even be able to read it. There are blogs out there like this, trust me, I have seen them and never gone back. 2. Blogs with BLARING loud music...'nuff said 3. Dark blogs with dark lettering. Who can read that? 4. Blogs with so many ads and google ads that you don't even know where their content starts and the ads end.... Hate that!! 5. Blogs that have content cut off of their pages or ads overlapping ads.. drives me nuts (by the way, does my header do that for you????) 6. 4560985430 hoops you have to jump through, just to leave a flippin' comment.. turns me OFF 7.
