Blog Post of the Week
Let’s face it, most of us who run a blog are concerned about two things: making money blogging and making your readers happy. Ultimately, it really should be about making it easy on your readers and engaging them so they can find the information they want and/or need and the rest should flow from there. In light of that, how often do you see a website or blog that has random and obtrusive ads thrown up haphazardly and think to yourself “Hey, this is a site I want to check out?” If you’re like most of us then it’s likely rare at best. What I enjoyed about this post was that it walks through the balance that can be difficult to reach, but it gives actionable ways to achieve it. If you’re in search of that balance, make sure to check out this post for some pointers.
