If you've been actively reading blogs or logging in to Nuffnang Innit
these days, you'd notice that a lot of the post were regarding blog traffic.
And you'd also notice that most of their "ways" was by using a traffic
Of course these sites provide you with traffic...
BUT do they provide you with readers that really read your posts??
Think of this as something like opening a boutique at the side of a highway.
Cars will pass by but then no one's gonna step in the shop.
But then it's a totally different story if you place that same boutique beside
an alley. Although there's not as much people compared to the highway,
at least these people have more time to get a better glimpse of the shop.
They might get in the shop, buy something and maybe come back to visit again.
And who know they might even bring along some friends.
some might want it cheerful, right? So you don't want to over decorate and
distract your customers from what you're selling.
Same concept that can be applied to your blog. You want the layout to be
simple, not to many animations and advertisement because there is only one thing
that your readers come for... your blog posts. And maybe some of your readers
might just come back just for your layout. ( My sis has a weird behavior, she goes to
certain boutiques just to look at their chandeliers.)
Next, still with the boutique. Well in a boutique store you will want
ample space for your customer's to move around. That way they can
browse faster, decide faster, purchase faster and F*** off faster for
more customers to come.
Again same goes to your blog. I think that you guys should know that
the widgets on your blogs affect how fast your blog loads. So try to minimize
the use of widgets. (I know it's hard right??) With that people are able to access
your blog faster and they get to read those interesting topics you have. Oh... one more thing
try showing as few post as possible as it also affect blog speed.
I think you should have realized by now that most, if not all,
of your blog readers are also bloggers themselves.
As a blogger you should know that we love people reading our post.
So as an understanding blogger that reads other understanding blogger's
blog, you should understand that leaving an understanding comment
is very understandingly important. Do you UNDERSTAND??
Plus... please finish reading the post and understand it before putting any comments.
And I've also discovered that we bloggers and blog readers who are also bloggers
have come up with a new type of online conversation with the chat box on their blogs.
I call it the Instant Conversation Method.
Blogger A : Dropped by. (on blogger B's chat box)
Blogger B : Thx for dropping by. (on blogger A's chat box)
There you go... a CONVERSATION.....
Hmmm... I think I've just helped some boutique owners out there....
