When you write blog posts or articles online, the flow and format of the post is very important. If you are just writing and writing never ending posts or articles, it will sometimes overwhelm your readers though it has very good information. You can just read through your post once or twice before its being published and it may ring your bell. I don't believe writing posts just using text is can claimed as bad. It's about keeping reader attention attached to your writing. Here, I'm gonna talk about an element which could help guide readers and structure your writing - Headings. Have you been using headings in your posts or articles?

Also those recommendations will be visible for users in Google search results too. Did you install Google +1 button for your posts in Blogger? If not you can implement +1 button by reading Add Google +1 Button for Blogger Posts.

Are you new to blogging? May be you may have never heard of labeling or categorizing posts, but I know you already have the idea of categorization. Simply, if you get a movie as an example, you can see that it has been categorized under Action, Drama, Sci-Fi or such categories. The use of categories is productive when an user needs to find related movies. For example, if he interested in Horror movies, he would like to go through Horror category and find interesting movies that matches to his tastes. As like that, when you are writing posts or publish media on your blog, visitors would like to go through related and interested categories instead of going through each and every posts. Obviously, everyone doesn't like each of your posts. But they might prefer posts written about specific subject. That's why categorization plays a major role on your blog and need to think about. So would you like to categorize or label your posts too?
