Following Damien’s earlier post, can I suggest the following…
- Nice logo (get rid of the colour bar)
- Decent stylesheet (blue links on a blue background don’t go)
- Option to add original post to del.icio.us, Kick or any other social bookmarking site, links outputted with each post.
- Utilise the space in the top right corner with something, anything, even if its an ad block, just looks like a white square
- Add the OPML feed that is suggested in the about section, then enable OPML discovery
- Graphic links for Politics in Ireland (might be able to get other political bloggers to sport a small button for posts from their chosen party etc.). Something handy, 88*31, 80*15 etc.
- Make use of meta tags in the source code
- Possible to arrange a daily email of ‘posts of the day’?
Just for beginners… it is Saturday night after all…..
Update: That box in the corner thing… how about a Google search for the site? Does the software have any way of generating a Google sitemap per post?
Woo, excellent stuff. Thanks.
You’re welcome…. 🙂
Yep, current stylesheet is shamelessly stolen from Planet, a popular open-source aggregator. OPML thing is in pipeline, as is email of the day (with option to just subscribe to a particular category).
