I present you the previously alluded to mystery project. This has been a long time in the making, a month to precise. It’s probably not as exciting as some were hoping it would be but it should at least prove enlightening.
If you’re a blogger then you know just how hard it is trying to routinely come up with interesting, unique and timely material. Many bloggers succumb to the inevitable writers block and fade away. Some may resurface months, even years, later but many go down for the count and become a distant memory.
So far the blogging tips have covered some basics with images and then some more technical stuff with compression. This time we’ll dial it back a bit and do some more basic stuff that anyone can do regardless of your choice of blogging platform.
The first part of the article was pretty simple stuff and something every site can utilize. This part is going to get more technical but will also be where you may see the biggest impact so hang in with me here.
The other day I was messing around with my blog and decided to see how large of a footprint it was. What I mean by that is every site has a footprint, which is to say how large the site is in terms of kilobytes or megabytes. All the images on your site, the text, etc, all adds up and is then delivered to the people visiting your site. Obviously the more text you have and the more images you have the larger your site is. There are other factors we’ll get into later. Thus begins another article on blogging tips.
We’ll change gears from blogging tips on how to increase your blog traffic to tips regarding comments on your blog. Comments let us bloggers know that people are reading our stuff and they care enough to reply. Comments are probably the most sustaining feature of a good blog. Getting a lot of comments on an article is the difference between something that’s forgotten in a day to something that lives on weeks after it was posted. You want people to comment on your articles, to discuss it, so you need a way for them to do that.
I’ve only been really blogging for about 10 months, however my full time job is as a PHP programmer for a web hosting company. I may still be learning about blogging but I have good knowledge regarding the technical side of things. So, I thought I’d start a helpful little series to help bloggers get the most out of their blog. I’m not going to bog this down in technical jargon. My aim is to keep it simple and clear.
