Bloggers are obsessed with blog improvement. It’s how we adapt to new trends, implement new technology, and refine presentation in order to draw visitors deeper into our blog.
It’s also how we waste a lot of time.
Whether you get sucked into the wonderful world of widgets or find yourself plunging into the plethora of plugins, it’s easy to stray from your original task and it often leads to a lot of lost time. No matter how fun or informative it may be, becoming distracting while performing blog improvement can cost you hours … even days.
So how can we improve our blog without sacrificing time? One way to achieve this is to focus on the four corners of your blog.
Before we dive into the series on exploring how bloggers can magnetize the four corners of their blogs, I’d like to go over what those four corners actually are and why it’s they’re so important.
What Are The Four Corners of A Blog?
Every blog is different, but most share four things in common – these are called the four corners of the blog.
These areas work together to create the experience of your blog – the better each corner is, the better the experience. The better the experience, the more likely your visitor is to revisit, socialize with you, and invest in your creative work.
Blog Improvement, One Corner At A Time
The reason why it’s crucial bloggers magnetize the four corners of their blog is because visitors tend to have short attention spans, and therefore require the information you want them to find upfront and center.
When bloggers fail to magnetize a corner, visitors lose interest and give up. The most common area where this happens is the sidebar. Bloggers pack their sidebar with unnecessary widgets, tools, games, ads, and more, leaving the visitor clueless as to what the blog has to offer.
By approaching your blog improvement activity with your blog corners in mind, you’ll be able to achieve more goals, keep track of time, and efficiently magnetize your blog corners, which will in turn, enhance your visitors’ experience on your blog.
