Book Blogger Hop July 13th - July 19th: 263 Is a Strictly Non-Palindromic Number

Jen at Crazy for Books restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another, but then couldn't continue, so she handed the hosting responsibilities off to Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them.

This week Billy asks: Does a cluttered blog have you not returning? By cluttered I mean too many columns, small type, too many photos, difficult to follow, etc.

I have to preface my response to this comment to say that I don't actually visit very many blogs. There are a few I return to on a regular basis, but between work, the Littlest Starship Captain, the Redhead, keeping up with this blog, and the various other demands on my time, I'm just not able to do a lot of blog reading.

That said, there are a number of things that will cause me to stop visiting a blog. Anything that autoplays, whether it is music or a video, makes me immediately click away from a blog. An overly busy background, especially one that makes it difficult to read any text is a big negative for me. I don't mind icons as long as they are confined to well-defined sidebars, but things should be clearly labeled and the blog should be easy to navigate. Above all, the text of the blog posts should be obvious and easy to read. Nothing will turn me off a blog quicker than page elements that obscure the text of the posts.
