Day Five: Make the Most of Your Archives

Today’s assignment: integrate a feature to draw traffic to your older content like a widget, related posts, or a “Best of” page.

I love how these assignments spark you to make little tweaks and changes to what you already thought was “okay, that’s kinda nice”.

With this assignment, I trimmed some fat by removing widgets like the Facebook Page which I have no clue what to do with just yet and the Instagram feed that I am not using much.

With the real estate space saved, I added in a Top Posts and Page widget (due to yesterday’s assignment nudge), a Recent Comments feed and the Related Posts feature I had no clue existed.

There is always room for improvement, right?

  1. I do have a “Top Post” widget, which is graded by the number of “Stars” a post is given which was the measurement about three years or so ago and before “Likes” came in. That being the cases, there has been no change to my “Top Posts” for blogging centuries, and most of my 400 plus efforts languish in deep obscurity 😦

Great blogs thrive because of comments and readership. I'd love to hear from you!
