...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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
