More little blogging tips
So here are a few more little tips for ya. In addition to the first three I mentioned...
Suzannah's blogging tip #4: Search feature.
Please, oh, please, add a Search widget on your blog! On Blogger this is really easy--it's one of the widgets you can put anywhere you please. I have one on my right sidebar a few images down. It's really helpful if someone sees something on your blog but doesn't remember exactly when it was. Using keywords, people can find your posts. You want that, right!? Tags are helpful for this, too, but searching is way easier.
Suzannah's blogging tip #5: Make it easy for people to follow you.
There are so many great tools out there for following blogs (I just got a Bloglovin' account and love it! Here's my blog on it), so it's great to have lots of easy one-click ways for people to follow you. Blogger, Twitter, RSS, Bloglovin'... add buttons for people to connect with you!
Suzannah's blogging tip #6: Pinterest!
I looove Pinterest (duh. Who doesn't?). But, it's also a great way to introduce people to blogs! I've found a lot of fave blogs through it. So, take great pictures that people want to pin, for one, and you can create a board for your faves from your blog. A tutorials board, a board for special projects... when they're on Pinterest already, they're a lot easier for people to pass around and get linked back to you from! And, it's so much fun. You can also look at anything that's pinned from your blog, click on the link, and see all the pics people have pinned from your site!! And, you can get a Pin It! button for the bottom of your posts to make it even easier for people to pin your stuff.
