could your blog be better?

February 3, 2012 separator Blogging

Could your blog be better? More organized? Prettier? Easier to share? Have more followers? Be more interesting?
That’s where Shrimp Salad Circus comes in! From now on, I’ll be writing a featured called ‘blog better,’ where I’ll answer your most pressing blogging questions and address your concerns with tutorials, free templates, and all sorts of advice.
Now’s your chance to have your say in this new feature. Do you have questions, like:
  • How do I get more followers?
  • What kind of content do people want to read?
  • How do I add a sharing button to the end of my posts?
  • How can I make my blog prettier to look at?
To ask your questions – and be first in line to get them answered! – click here, or click on that giant question mark up there, and ask away. I’ll put ’em in the queue for a big, helpful post!


  1. Hi Lindsay, I have numerous questions…. why don’t my readers comment? How do I add media share buttons and not buttons linking to my media pages? Are there sites where people will critique your blog for you so you can get insight?

    Thanks for your posts, I love your blog, its content and layout!

  2. I’d love to learn how to get more comments. My reader-numbers are steadily growing, but my blog isn’t getting many comments. I know I should ask more questions and “tickle” my readers into giving their opinion, but how do I do that? I’m really looking forward to learn more about blogging by your lessons, have been following your blog for quite some time now and I’m really impressed by it! x. Maria

  3. I’d like to learn more about blog design. How you make your headers, your background images, etc. I love your blog by the way! Very cute and inspiring. 🙂

  4. Love this! You’re going to totally rock it, I know. How about “yes” to all of the questions you posted above 😛

  5. I’m looking forward to this! I love reading on how to make my blog better as there is always room for more improvement. 🙂

  6. Yes please! Do a blogging for beginners. Like how do you set up your own site, how to make it pretty, how do you get such pretty fonts and links etc. 🙂 your blog is really awesome to read!

  7. What about ‘blogging for beginners’? I don’t currently have a blog but I am preparing to start one. It is difficult to know where to start, and also how much preperation to do before I actually get stuck in. Even obvious things like which blogging site is best would be useful to hear someones opinion on. Any advice on that would be really helpful 🙂

  8. I’m curious how to attract new followers and how to encourage followers to stay. I have a good group of about 70-80 people who read consistently and about 15-20 who consistently comment, but I am getting to the point where I would like more followers. I would also like to learn how to make better use of social media – how do we increase output more than just having a social media presence?
