  1. I hope you Leave me a NoTe or Comment to let me know you stopped by! on my Blog. That was Gruesome and so True! By the Way. I added follow by email…..Duh!

    Great Blog Post!

  2. In my opinion, it’s good to be opinionated, especially when your opinions make so much sense, Jenny. I agree wholeheartedly.

    I don’t have a smartphone and can’t test my own blog’s readability but I know blogger has the option to make it mobile-friendly on the dashboard under Template.

    I hope plenty of bloggers read this post and make changes if necessary.

  3. With regards to your #4, about fonts, I think blog writers get into trouble when they copy and paste text from somewhere else and don’t realize that the formatting has carried over. It’s helpful to learn some basic html and occasionally take a look at the html view of their blog to see that the formatting is consistent.

    Thanks for the reminders.

    • I think you’re right, Elizabeth. I’m glad you mentioned it. Fortunately, with Blogger and/or WordPress, you don’t really need to know HTML … all you need to click is one button that removes all formatting, which makes it a LOT easier.

    • Dana, I like the look of your blog! It’s clean and uncluttered. Your writing style is conversational and doesn’t feel “forced.” The only thing I would recommend is that you also put some buttons on your blog for your readers to follow you on your various social media outlets, not just share your posts (if you aren’t already on a social media platform – especially Facebook, Google+, and Twitter – you might want to start now). Nice work!
