Top 10 Weblog Design Mistakes

27 Nov 2005 (Sun)

Top 10 Weblog Design Mistakes according to usability guru Jakob Nielsen:

  1. No Author Biographies (trust: add a descriptive ‘About’ page)
  2. No Author Photo (credibility, recognition)
  3. Nondescript Posting Titles (time: create microcontent)
  4. Links Don’t Say Where They Go (anticipation: use link titles)
  5. Classic Hits are Buried (time: add highlights)
  6. The Calendar is the Only Navigation (time: use categories)
  7. Irregular Publishing Frequency (anticipation)
  8. Mixing Topics (recognition: carve niche)
  9. Forgetting That You Write for Your Future Boss (future value)
  10. Having a Domain Name Owned by a Weblog Service (future value: readership, links, search engine ranking)

Looks like i’d better do something about points 1., 2. and 5. ;-)

Masie’s Experimentations

31 Oct 2005 (Mon)

A reflection by Elliot Masie in the latest LearningTrends newsletter:

Dear Learning & Training Colleague,

You have watched me, as reader of Learning TRENDS, experiment my way through the design of a very different event, Learning 2005, over the past 12 months. (Me: “It has been truly interesting to watch.”)

In just 3 days, I’ll have the incredible honor of welcoming 1,500 learning colleagues from two dozen countries around the world to the start of a very different type of “conference”. We changed a lot of assumptions during the design process and I wanted to share those with you, as a personal reflection:

Crossing The Road II

24 Jul 2004 (Sat)

Extracted from a commentary in the last issue of The Sunday Times entitled “Web feat or just show-and-tell?”:

“A BLOG, OR WEB LOG, is like a paper diary except that you compose your entries on a computer and send them up to a website. You can make a blog completely private or limit access to friends. But if you really don’t mind having your innermost thoughts read by utter strangers, then you can write a public blog that anyone can go to by typing in the correct Web addresses.

“What suprises me is that lots of bloggers (or bloggettes?) actually relish opening a window to their lives this way…. Even more unexpected is that these bloggers really let things hang out when recording their personal dramas for general consumption… So, if you know a blogger — or a journalist — be careful of what you say or do to him. Otherwise one day you may find your dirty linen washed in public without you realising it, until it is too late. Then you will know what the view is like from the other side of the window.” Read the rest of this entry »
