Blogger Onibalusi Bamidele has come a long way in a short time ::: he has written a post every serious blogger should read and subsequently tweet, bookmark and print! I have a conflict with his tip #7, Only Get High Quality Traffic: I intend to continue networking via Entrecard, which makes it difficult to keep my bounce rate low, just because of the nature of the "Entrecard beast." I am WONDERING... if I cut down on my dropping ECs and only interact with other bloggers who show an interest in my blog, would that eliminate the bounce problem? (I know the numbers of credits others would need to advertise on my blog would drop dramatically! [LOL])
Onibalusi's #1 rule is to keep the load time of your blog as fast as you can! I would NOT recommend adding anything like CommentLuv, Disqus or Intense Debate. Why? You'll lose every single dial-up (and some mobile) readers! These features will EVENTUALLY load, but dial-uppers have better things to do than to wait 15 minutes for your blog's comments to load! FIND A BETTER WAY!
Thank-you to everyone who has promoted my blog post in memory of blogger "Explorer Kitten" - the murder of Karen Woo is unthinkable - a needless death, a great waste of talent. RIP!
