How to Design a WordPress.com Blog

Posted in Asides, Technology, WordPress.com Tips by engtech on July 21, 2006

Evolving Trends is what I think the perfect example of a well-layed out WordPress blog looks like.

  • Little sidebar clutter.
  • Lots of tags to make it easier for people to find his blog and to increase inbound links.
  • Intrasite links (Related and Semi-related) on every post to ease navigation to similar articles.
  • A sane amount of Web2.0 social bookmarking site submissions chiclets on each article.
  • Each post is a well thought out article instead of a quick link (like this post).
  • …and as I mention again and again, the occasional off-beat post with a sense of humour.

    and don’t forget the occasional this-does-not-belong-here-but-its-fun-so-who-cares post! e.g. the latest post: WordPress Logo Competition. :)
