Things may look a little different over here. Not too different, but a little tidier I think.
I have been looking at my google analytics to work out where all you lovely readers come from every day. The majority seem to come from ‘referring sites’. These are like a direct link to the post for that day. So, when I write a blog post, you are coming to that exact post from twitter, facebook, readers… etc.
This means not many were coming directly to the home page. To see the new home page (because I know you came here directly to this post!) click www.katrinaleechambers.com.
So, I thought that seeing as my home page is under-used, I should trial snippets from my blog posts and see what happens. The best thing about google analytics is you can see your bounce rate (time people spend on pages, and how many pages they view at a time).
If you all bounce of it quickly, then I’ll trial something else! 🙂
I’ve also really tidied up my comments section. It flows better. I’ve also removed any junk in the sidebar.
…. and I’ve taken Google Friend Connect off. This widget is becoming absolute in March this year for WordPress blogs. I’ve added lots of areas around my blog for readers to still be able to subscribe (a floating bar at the top, the RSS button floating on the left, and 2 options in the top sidebar for you to be able to subscribe via a reader or email).
I’ll let you know how it goes!
Hope you like it.
Have a great day. I’m resting after my massive garage sale yesterday. Blog post to come about that! Boy, was that hilarious 😉
