Before starting a blog,  I was interested in what other people had to  say  about usability and blogging and came across the following interesting articles:

  1. Twenty usability tips for your blog from ‘I’d rather be writing..from Tom Johnson’
  2. Weblog Usability: The Top Ten Design Mistakes from Jakob Neilson’s Alert Box

Some of my favourite tips from these websites are:

  • Include a photo and make things visual!
  • Make headlines descriptive
  • Archive by topic (not date)
  • Post often
  • Make as many links as you can and tell people where they are going
  • Don’t forget that you could be writing for your future boss..
