New post at Making the Most of Your WordPress Blog’s Sidebar

Posted by Libby Fisher on Wednesday, July 6th, 2011 in Blogging, WordPress

Today I published my latest post for bizchickblogs.comMaking the Most of Your WordPress Blog’s Sidebar.

The post covers 3 important reasons why the sidebar is an important area of any blog, one of the biggest mistakes bloggers should avoid making, and 5 plugins worth trying out on your own blog.

Make sure you take a few minutes to head on over to, check out the post and maybe even leave a comment to let the rest of us know which plugins you use and/or recommend! 🙂

  • Sidebar is one which can be utilized for varied reasons, we can even highlight our most preferred link in a blog roll and even highlight the recent comment. All these will induce the visitors to comment on the blog post.

  • I like how on many themes, the sidebar helps keep a clean, organized look. Too much clutter makes the rest of the blog difficult to read.

      Hi Jason,

      I agree with you! Thanks for commenting!

  • After reading that post I have reconsidered my sidebar a and my conclusion is that there are too much widgets is really better to have few but the right ones.

    Reading your post about the side bar, give me some enlightenment. Side bar is a great tool if used the way you mentioned on your post.
    I’ll take these advice and check my WP if there is any type modification needed for my WP blog.
