Does your blog suffer from the 'top 10 mistakes'?

As part of my on-going quest for the perfect website (and a blog is merely a website) the latest Usability report from Jacob Nielsen is of high interest: Weblog Usability: The Top Ten Mistakes

  • No author biographies
  • No author photo

  • Irregular publishing frequency
  • Mixing topics
  • Forgetting that you write for your future boss
  • Having a domain name owned by a weblog service
