Hi!

Sorry if you've read this on another forum page, but I've recently started my own blog.

Check it out here onlyanimanga.blogspot.com

I've mostly done posts on anime and manga reviews, with some comparison pages and recently a review on the Psycho Pass movie. If you like to then recommend me some anime and manga to review or a new feature. Currently I'm working on a "7 things in Anime/Manga" feature, but this will take time to do.

I've checked out your blog Classicpowell. I like what you've done to it and I'd like to share some hints & tips which I've done to improve my layout and what not.

You should make a logo for it using cooltext or pixeleditor (online equivalent to photoshop). I've used them both and would recommend them to you.

Experiment with backgrounds and colours - because if people want to check your blog out on phones and tablets, they should be able to read your posts easily. I have some friends who told me that they couldn't read my posts when I had a dark background and played around with different colours for background and text. But I have seen yours on my phone and the white background for the text showed up (maybe my blog just doesn't like my phone )

Experiment with layouts for easy navigation around blog if you're wanting to add more features/gadgets

Add a twitter chat window so people can contact you quickly if they want to. Get a code for a twitter

Make it easy for people to subscribe to your blog - you can do this through the layout settings and adding gadgets

I hope this helps you. Blzreaper I'll check out your blog too and feel free to use these hints and tips!
Also feel free to give me some hints and tips on my blog and what else I can feature. The more the merrier!

It's on the right hand side of my blog. You can get it if you share something via twitter. A window will open which will show what the tweet will consist of and will require you to sign into Twitter in order to send the tweet. At the bottom you should see something about getting Twitter on your site. Click on that and you should be able to get the Twitter chat window using the available code.

Once you have the code, go onto the blog layout page and go to the "Add Gadgets" on the panel you want it on. You should see a feature to do with the HTML code and paste the code into that.

Now you should have a twitter chat window. Hopefully this will help you get it easily - I tried to make it as straightforward as possible

Yeah I have one too.

http://inthecubbyhole.wordpress.com

I haven't put much up for this month. However with the Autumn / Winter line up, expect something to be posted up on them at some point. Feel free to exchange links with me as well.

Also some few tips:

- Don't be shy to comment on other anime blogs. This helps to draw traffic to your blog and build up a network.
- Use the MAL review guide to help you out with your reviews. Don't use all the bullet points for each category. Just pick at least two from each category, you feel you are comfortable answering.
- Try to use track backs / pings

There are several ways to promote / getting more readers on your blog.

Social media

Connect your blog site with social media. Use twitter to help your blog. It isn't a must, but it helps. Sites like FB or google+, anime forums (use your blog URL as your signature), MAL, Anime-planet, Crunchyroll, Humming bird etc. The general idea is to post your blog link, everywhere. However it would be a good idea to just focus on three sites. So you'll have your blog site, twitter, and social site. Build up a rapport on them sites.

What are trackback or back links

Since you're using blogger this will help you guys out

https://support.google.com/blogger/answer/42533

It should explain as to what they are. Advice here guys, put the url before you publish your post - it won't work if you're already posted. And don't track / back link spam. Always allow back link - it is more neighbourly that way, unless it is spam linking.

Follow and comment on other blogs

Follow and comment on other anime blogs. This is crucial in building up readership and followers. You also build up a network of fellow bloggers, who will leave comments on your blog and follow you. Don't be shy in introducing yourself and leaving comments. You have the use of OpenID. That is how you can leave comments on other blogging sites.

Link exchange

Exchanging links with one another is one way of getting your blog out. Leave a comment on this site guys, they actively exchange links.

https://animewithsky.wordpress.com/link-exchange/

Use relevant tags and keep posting!!!.

Just to note. I'm not familiar with blogger that much, so guys experiment with back links.

If I still have a wordpress and blogspot account, I will have to check out your guy's blogs and follow them!

I personally have been blogging for about 5+ years now, but I just launched a new one on Tumblr back in January. They added some great features for blogging, plus I find the platform very easy to use and is easy to customize. (if anyone was wondering why I choose tumblr over a traditional blogging site like wordpress) I will admit though that if I could customize my blog on wordpress or blogspot as easily as I can on tumblr, I would have definitely went there instead.

here is my blog though for those interested:

http://raithreviews.tumblr.com/

activity has been slow because of work, but I am usually able to at least get one out per week.

I also have this other blog on tumblr where I just post gifs and such (pretty much a typical blog you would find on tumblr) so you can look at some pretty pictures there if you are bored
