Tip: posting a new blog entry

I subscribe to many blogs using iGoogle as a news reader. It’s a real time saver because I can easily see which of my favorite blogs have new entries. With one glance – at one web page – I can see all the new post titles and click on them to read the entire post.

The blog entries show up much better if you give your post a title. If you skip past the title field your blog post shows up as a blank line. Then there’s nothing for your reader to click on; you have to go to the blog to find the post. It’s just one more step for the reader and the more steps there are, the less likely your blog will be read.

iGoogle is an example of an RSS reader. For more information about RSS, go to Common Craft’s website.
