What they really want is to discover whether you have a common interest they can connect with. Your readers want to know what you can do for them.

Declutter the Reading List | Small Notebook

Streamline your blog reading list. I do this with entire blogs as well as individual articles (so make sure your headlines are catchy, folks!).

Fans need to continually interact with your page. They can like, comment, share, click links, etc.

What Blog Tasks are You Embarrassed to Admit You’ve Overlooked? : @ProBlogger

Oh, my gosh, I definitely have my list. Today I’m submitting my blog to DMOZ. It’s taken only 4.5 years. I’ve been meaning to rewrite my About page for … um … a year or two? And my sidebar … oy.
What bloggy tasks have you been putting off and/or forgetting?
