- Include popular categories and important pages in your top menu. I change mine sometimes, but I always like to include the following: About, Contact and Disclosure pages in addition to my Fashion, Baby and Fitness categories.
- Be sure there is an easy to use archive feature in your sidebar. This allows people to easily find older content. For example, if someone wants to know what we did around Christmas last year, they can easily find it by using my archive dropdown.
- Have a search bar somewhere that is easy to find. Along the same lines as the archives, this gives people an easy way to find what they want.
- My “More Posts” link is big and easy to see. When you scroll to the bottom of a blog’s homepage or category page, you often have the ability to click a “read more” or “more posts” button to see more content. Make sure yours is bigger than 12 pt. font and is easy to see.
