6 EZ Ways to Improve a Website

Today is crazy busy, but I prepared a short post with big impact for you. All of these are based on pet peeves reporter by frequent internet users.

6 EZ Ways to Improve Your Blog

1. Remove auto-start music.

I'm a music lover, but that doesn't mean I want to hear the music you love.Especially when it comes on at full volume!

2. Change the background to white or a light color and the text to black.
Reading text on a black background with a white or fluorescent color tires the eye tremendously. People who are online all day, reading, don't need that kind of eyestrain.

3. Remove those jumping, hopping, blinking animated gifs.
Unless your purpose is to distract visitors from your content, get rid of those animated gifs.

4. Change font to an easily read serif font
Use a serif font online. It's crisper and easier to read than fonts commonly used for print like Times New Roman.

5. Use images to illustrate your posts.
There are many sources for free images. Use them to break up big blocks of text and make your posts more interesting.

6. Use sub-headings to break up the text.
Online readers scan text vertically, looking for the facts or the gist of the content. That's why it's good to break up big blocks of text.

Takeaway Truth

Remember, the way you format something to be read online is different from the way you format it for print.


  1. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads
    up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
    I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something
    to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let
    you know. The style and design look great
    though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Thanks
