I have noticed that a lot of blogs do not have the FOLLOW BUTTON from WIDGETS in a convenient and EASY TO SPOT location!

If folks see it without searching, they will click and follow!  UPDATE your site from the ADMIN section.  Leave a comment if you need clearer guidance!

    Hi Martha!

    Good post!

    An issue I have too is people use a Gravatar with no blog link . . .

    I don’t understand why some pages have several buttons – but no “like” button.


    • Some things are affected by theme design, and some appear on the post but not the home page. The follow button, when I joined WordPress, appeared automatically at the top of my site.

      You can drag and drop widgets to the sidebar list to control the order. There are 2 follower buttons and I recommend offering both!

        I can understand that. You have to click my new posts to read them on my Home page. My front page is stagnant. I run across bloggers and I can’t find like buttons, even when I click into their article. I have noticed blogs have a follow option on the lower right hand side. It appears when you first clock on the articles, as you scroll down, it disappears.


      • When you drag the follow button from widgets/admin, you can drag theminto any position on the sidebar, so you can reorder the entire list of sidebar items and in some cases footer items as well.
        I believe some bloggers turn off like buttons, but i find them useful since it tells me if I am reaching my target market.


  2. Thanks for this advice. Will you kindly take a look at my blog and let me know if I should make a change?
    Thanks and God bless!

      • Thanks for checking it out and for following! I’ve only been blogging a year. So as a newbie, I sure appreciate your help. I’ve been writing freelance for magazines and newspaper as well as studies and devotions. I’m also almost finished with my novel. Thanks again for taking time to read my blog.

    Is this an actual widget? I am not sure if I have one at inpulsearts.com/Word
