I decided to make a post about how to make your blog readers happy.

Here are some few points which are proved to be helpful.

  1. No clickers: Try to use less clickers which are the most annoying thing to the readers. They link every 3rd word in the post. They are used by the bloggers to increase their revenue but readers get irritated by them. So try to use less clickers.
  2. Full Page Ads: Apart from clickers full page ads are also a mess. They make the reader wait for a certain time before displaying the page. They often make the page load slower.
  3. Make your content easily accessible: Make RSS feeds, email notification and SMS alerts available to the readers.  Also post these links in sidebar in a location where the readers usually see. Not on the footer.
  4. Make pages loading faster: Try to use less plug-ins, widgets and other content which makes the page loads faster. Users with slow internet often get irritated with the slow loading of the page. Don’t bloat your blog too much.
  5. Provide a chat box to users: Most of the readers are too lazy to go to the contact page and send you an email if they want a post related to anything. Get them a chatbox like Digsby Widget, Cbox or yahoo Ping. The users are able to directly contact you.
  6. Reply to each and every comment: Reply to every comment and be polite to readers. Replying to comments make the readers come to your blog again and again which will ultimately increase the page views.
  7. Clean Template: Choose a good-looking template +  neat template. So it makes the interface more user friendly.
  8. Slideshow Widget: Add images to your post and add a slideshow widget. You can have many alternatives like Wowzio.
  9. Translate page widget: All the users are not from the same country where you are from. They have different languages and can often find understanding English difficult. So make them translate page widget available.
  10. Link Exchange: Add a link exchange page if the readers want to exchange the link page they can do that easily.

These are some points which can be used for making blogging wonderful.

Apart from these there are more but we will carry that in next part.
