- Comments - If your posts have several comments, this is very appealing to readers and actually encourages them to leave a comment themselves. Thus having posts with zero comments does exactly the opposite and can cause readers to lose interest and leave your blog. One way of alleviating this problem is to edit the text that reads "0 comments" to something different such as "please leave a comment" or simply "comments."
- Theme - An attractive, easy to navigate theme creates a positive blogging experience. However, an unattractive theme that is difficult for the user to find information may cause the user to become frustrated and leave. Furthermore, it's best to create a blog with a plain, simple white background. Dark backgrounds can be somewhat difficult to view text on. If your blog has several large image files that result in slow loading speeds, this could also detract visitors who may get tired of waiting for your blog to load.
- Post Frequency - It's important to continually provide good, interesting content if not on a daily basis then at a minimum every other day. Readers will be disappointed if they visit your blog and you don't have anything new to offer them.
