One of such alternatives is to recommend related content following a post or article. Have you been recommending old content to your readers too?

If you are on Blogger blogging platform, you know that the best possible way to interact with your readers is via comment form. As the platform enriched with Google+ social features, now bloggers can switch to Google+ comments to expand the horizon and to take conversations into a whole new level too. Yet all the conversations are made available to public. Don't you have a necessity for a contact form despite of having a comment form on your blog?

Generally, blogs have two types of pages - Post and Static pages. Now, you are on a post page too. Static pages come in handy when you need to display information related to your blog, which may not fit in for usual blog posts. For example, biographies of authors and story behind the blog. Unlike blog posts, static pages may not visible to visitors unless you decide to show them on homepage or somewhere easily accessible. Have you got a navigation menu for your blog?

How many of you are using Internet Explorer as your regular web browser? If you are using Microsoft Windows operating system, I wouldn't be surprised though. However it has its own way of doing things. Yeah, quite stubborn. Those who are familiar with design or development of websites, probably know what I'm talking about. For example, a blog theme or template may render very nicely in any web browser except for Internet Explorer because the theme / template has no specific instructions for Internet Explorer. Can you recall such experiences? Well, I've got some!

Have you been using headings in your blog posts or articles? Headings are helpful to break down information for readers without overwhelming them with texts all over the page. Not only human readers, but also electronic devices and automated tools read your content and make use of headings to structure your posts or articles to present in a better way for human readers. Even search engines index your content effectively and structured manner if you use HTML header tags properly and your content will perform better in search results too. You love some SEO boost. Don't you?

Hello Blogger folks, do you enjoy blogging at your end? I know you are. I have no doubt about that. Few years back, it felt like Google abandoned Blogger platform as it wasn't getting much attention. But recently Blogger has been offering some wonderful features to the blogging platform to improve the experience of bloggers and readers. Blogger's new look, Dynamic Views, integrating Google+ social platform and introducing threaded comments are few of them. Are you satisfied with the default comment form and its capabilities?

Have you been using Dynamic Views on your Blogger blog? :) I'm sure you are attracted to those elegant templates developed with modern web technologies. Easy to use and manage, but unlike the usual layout templates, customization and gadget support is still limited. But don't lose your hopes, 'cause Blogger team is working on it. Now, it's not about upcoming features I wanna talk about. How do you feel about allowing visitors to switch among other dynamic views?

Hello bloggers, have you been blogging lately? I'm sure most of you and it's rare we might see bloggers running out of topics if they love to write in their niche. Don't you agree? If you explore the blogosphere for a moment, you will find personal blogs, blogs with random topics and almost other blogs are fit into a particular niche. Of course, correct me if I'm wrong there ;) Is there a possibility that a blogger might write in the same format when writing posts or articles?

"Now all you need to do is copy below CSS code snippet into your blog template and it will turn your background color into green." Are you familiar with such instructions? If you have been visiting my blog for a quite time, you might have heard of it for sure when it comes to tutorials related to design. If you are looking for customizing your blog's look and feel, CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is where you need to focus on, 'cause HTML alone doesn't help on styling your blog template. That's where you will need some knowledge in CSS or else you need to know where to use CSS code snippets provide in tutorials on web space.

So when? Ah... I've missed the first question ;) I wanna ask how do you send out or publish your posts on your blog? I know... You just push the publish button and it goes public. I mean, how would you decide which time is best for your post to get published. Hmm... You might be writing your posts and publish it rightaway when you are done with all sorts of editings. Or you might complete your posts and publish when it's the day or time to pubish. Else, probably you may follow either of ways depending on the content you gonna publish. Now can you tell me your secret?

Don't you just love staring at beautiful images or photos? :) I do and hope we all do. Usually we use images in our posts or articles. Don't we? Using relevant and meaningful images add more value to your content, and mostly it grabs attention of readers and helps understand something very easily and quickly than explaining something with 100s or 1000s of words. Hmm... Just imaging you gonna add an image to your post while writing a blog post and of course you know why you are adding it there. But for readers, not all but for some, they might be surprised what your image trying to express. Haven't you come accross such situations?

I have a quick question for you at the start. How would you mention a person in your blog post? Mmm... Just type the name of that person? Or Name and link it to a social profile or blog? Most possibly you would say "YES" for one of them. Don't you? If you admire that person or feels your readers would love to get connected with that person, most probably you would give some more than a mention by linking a social profile or blog. Anyway, what if you can mention a person instantly when you writing a post without bothering to find exact profile URL and spending time to create a link? That'd be wonderful enough and save your precious time too. Isn't it?

I know, as a blogger, you care your blog design, template or theme you use on your blog. It's reflecting your personality in a way, don't you think? If you are on Blogger platform, there are different sorts of themes you can use for your blog. Most of them are layout templates where you can arrange widgets on your layout easily and I have no doubt that you have heard about wonderful addition of new templates too - Dynamic Views. Have you been using dynamic views with its all glossy and interactive features and enjoying the latest web technologies it use? If you do, you probably need to take different routes to make some changes there. Now let me ask you - Did you ever wanted to add a header image for your blog configured with dynamic views?

Do you use images or photos in your blog posts? It's true that using relevant and eye-catching images tend to keep readers on your pages. Absolutely, a picture is worth a thousand words. I'm sure you have come across sceneries that cannot explain using words. Images help readers refresh their eyes and get attention instead of several hundreds and thousands of text does. It's a matter of attraction. But it needs to be relevant and meaningful. Else using images doesn't make sense most of the time. Instead of adding images to your posts or pages, have you ever thought how you can make use of the image HTML attributes?

We almost know about Google+ social platform now and it's the social platform offered by Google. Google+ has been improving over time since it started in 2011 and still does as social networks are very dynamic and need to be competitive in order to survive. As Google+ emerges on the web, it has been integrating more deeper into Google products and we have been witnessing how Google+ affects on some of Google products such as Google Search, Google Reader etc. Blogger is another product of Google which comes as a blogging platform and lately it has been associating with Google+ social layer too. We did talk about adding Google+ Badge for Blogger once it has been introduced. What if you can show off your Google+ followers altogether while letting readers add you to their circles?

Have you heard of a blog seeking no readers at all? Mmm... No, I haven't. Eventhough we all blog for different reasons, we are expecting at least one person to read what we have been sharing, right? Usually blogs are accessible for anyone exploring the web. But there could be scenarios where you might not wanna share what you blog about with everyone else in the world. Sounds like a private space, isn't it? Anyway, Have you been thinking of restricting your blog from others?
