Avoid These Annoying Blogging Techniques.

...What annoys blog readers most? Here is a list of some of the most commonly annoying blog-writing practices—habits that are far more likely to backfire than spread like wildfire:
  1. Hard-to-Read Fonts: Unique fonts are cool for large titles or headers, but not for main blog content. When you choose a delicate script or very creative print, you frustrate readers who can’t understand what you’re saying. That’s why, for the bulk of your writing, you need to use a font that’s easy on the eyes—which is exactly why all the leading websites rely on standard fonts that are clear and recognizable.
  2. No Original Content: Blogs that only repost content from other sites seem lazy and unoriginal. When visitors realize there’s no clear voice or unique information being shared, they’re likely to go somewhere else.
  3. Acting Like You Know It All: Nobody likes a know-it-all, and that’s just as true in the blogging world as it is everywhere else. When a blogger acts like he or she knows everything, it’s a big turn-off for readers.
