There are some great websites out three to help work out how to use blogs for business purposes. One of my favourites is eMoms at Home, down-to-earth chat and advice…
I recently hired blogging extraordinaire Sarah Lewis to help me overhaul my blog. I’m quite clueless when it comes to CSS – and Sarah is both talented, fun to work with, and a dang cool lady. I should have my new template up and running by the end of February.
Because of this, I’ve been doing a little housekeeping around here.
Although the work I’ve been doing is minor in the big picture of things, even small tweaks are making a big difference, so I wanted to share them with you. I was surprised at the time I put in (less than 2 hours on all of these combined) vs. the results, which were way more than I expected.
Simple changes like replacing a small feed icon with a large one, better placement of subscription information, a pages letting people know what subscription to a feed is… all pretty simple.
I think the honesty in her post shows that you don’t need to be an expert in all things web to do well at the blogging thing, you just need to know when you need a bit of help, and I guess, where to get it from.
eMoms has a good readership and subscriber base, so I’m glad to see that these small changes and tweaks have made fairly immediate difference. There are some simple ideas here that should be fairly easy to implement on most sites, have a read of the rest of the article here, and check out her archives for lots of other great articles.
