It’s day 11 of yeah write’s 31 dbbb challenge, and today’s task is to create a sneeze page. According to Kerstin Auer, who wrote the introduction to today’s lesson, “A sneeze page is an actual page on your blog, reserved for your very best posts, posts on a certain topic or even monthly features.” Kersten adds that, “As with everything else (at least as far as your blog is concerned), the possibilities are endless. The purpose, however, is the common thread: to show off the best of your blogging, hopefully attract new readers and turn them into loyal ones.”
Having a sneeze page on your blog is thus having a list of the best blog posts you’ve written (hopefully the list will be long). It spares your readers from going through your archives while giving your blog an extra boost – readers would most likely want to see what your best posts are.
I gave my sneeze page the title “Pages that Rock,” and it appears on the blog menu. Hopefully, you’ll click on the page and read through what I consider to be my best posts first before creating one for your own blog. Kersten says that having a sneeze page is “the ultimate in customer service: your readers get 10 posts for the effort of one click!” I don’t have 10 post on my sneeze page yet – I plan to add pages as I blog.
What title will you give your sneeze page?
