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.

Can you recollect discussing about embedding YouTube videos? Yes, we did. One of the features it offers is, enabling autoplay of videos. If autoplay is turned on, the reader / visitor doesn't need to click play button to start the video. Instead, as soon as the page loads, the video or playlist starts playing automatically. Sounds annoying. Isn't it? But it has a few uses too. Hmm... There's a time and place.

"Fun and Helpful". Don't you think?

Are you a Googler? Google Search has been very popular among many online users to find relevant information. Neither I can recollect a day spent without using Google Search to find information online. The next most adored feature Google Search had for me was discovering content using images.

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?
