Weblog Usability: Ten Design Mistakes

Jakob Nielsen: Test your weblog against the following usability problems.

  1. No Author Biographies
  2. No Author Photo
  3. Nondescript Posting Titles
  4. Links Don't Say Where They Go
  5. Classic Hits are Buried
  6. The Calendar is the Only Navigation
  7. Irregular Publishing Frequency
  8. Mixing Topics
  9. Forgetting That You Write for Your Future Boss
  10. Having a Domain Name Owned by a Weblog Service


Randy: These are actually much better than the usual top ten mistakes made by bloggers. I'm gonna work on #1, 2 and 5.
