This is where the difference between a normal blogger and an A-list blogger comes into focus. But before I tell you how to write a great blog post, let me ask you a question: What are libraries made of? Like most people, I was thinking “books”, or maybe “walls”. While I’m not sure there is an official answer to this question, the scientist’s answer was: Letters. His rationale was that books are made of sentences, sentences are made of words, and words are made of letters. This got me thinking. What are blogs made out of?

I will share few tips which have been successful in helping me to decrease the bounce rate of my website. They should be … [Read more...] about What is a Blog’s Bounce Rate and How to Decrease It
