3 Masters Every Blogger Must Be a Slave To
1. What is your favorite new blog?
The reason you want to know the answer to this question is because a new blog has broken through the noise and captivated your attention. Why? What secret -or not so secret- souse is the blogger using to make you stand up and take notice?
How can you take that sauce and add it to your Goulash?
2. What blog have you been reading consistently the longest?
We are all transients on these here Interwebs. We hang around for a while then we move on. If a blogger has been able to keep your attention for longer than few post, how did he do it? Why have you been hanging around on his blog for so long whilst blowing by countless others?
What made your longest blogging relationship so sticky?
3. What is the best designed blog you know?
Make no mistake. People WILL turn around and leave if your design sucks. I’ve done it.
Things are so easy online, the second we encounter a modicum of frustration we bolt out the virtual door that leads away from your blog. The layout, color schema, font size, typography…it ALL matters.
I find the best blog design is the one that doesn’t get in the way of content and takes the reader deeper into the blog archives. As if the reader is sliding down a funnel.
What blog -in your mind- epitomizes the pinnacle of blog design?
- I would love to hear your thoughts on this. The floor is yours.
