Ideas for my blog (so far) (11 posts)

    I need help with my Blog before I start marketing it!

    My ideas so far:
    -Add pictures/videos to posts (can I add free pictures easily to posts? The plug in I installed didn't work well!)

    -Add a Forum (weight loss help groups, etc)

    -Add Google Friend Connect (Is this any good?)

    Any suggestions on how I can add my ideas to my site? ALSO...any other suggestions for my blog? I feel like I am missing something.

    Tell me what you honestly think: http://www.skinnytwinkie.com
    (health and fitness site)
    GOAL:
    -Want readers to comment more
    -Want readers to WANT to come back (most visitors per Google Analytics are first time visitors that seemed to have gone to my site on accident...)

    Please Note: I was posting 3X a day, and stopped recently while I am focusing on making upgrades to my blog. Will start back up since I heard this helps readers come back again and again. suggestions?

    Thank you all for your help! :)

    Site colors suit really well gives a happy, fun, full of life feel to it.

    Ads....Do something with placing the ads in different places they are bunched up and it looks really bad and takes focus away from your poll.

    I noticed your font colors are different on posts. Is there a reason for this? Don't forget some people find it harder to see certain colors than others. Dark colors against bright white backgrounds go well and are easy to see.

    Lower the number of posts on each page people often don't like scrolling so far down.

    Shahan took the words right out of my mouth! I have nothing to add.

    Great site. I love the colors.

    thank you...i will make some adjustments.

    I am trying to see about spreading the ads away from each other..just not quite sure how to do that yet! I think i need to learn some more coding? (I want one side bar on one side, and one side bar on another.

    any more suggestions would be great :)

    ok, changed posts from 10 a page, to only 5 a page. hope this looks better for everyone :)

    Also,removed one of my ads, and changed things up a bit with them. not quite where i want it to be yet...any help on ads placement would be great. i want them noticeable, but not annoying or blocking content.

    Or maybe you could show a teaser of each post in the front page instead of showing the whole post. If you need to know how to do this click here.

    By the way, great blog. I like your blog niche. I have a health blog too and your blog looks pretty good.

    Cheers :)
