  1. Apart from points 4 and 5 I kinda agree with your post. However, there is one more thing which could drive potential visitors away…

    Now don’t take this the wrong way, but it also helps to pay attention to your blog environment and to make sure it leaves a “full” or “finished” impression. After reading this post I got intrigued and checked your ‘About’ page, only to discover that it was still the default as setup by WP.com. That can leave a wrong impression with visitors who might be interested to learn more about the person behind the post.

    Apart from that, really enjoyed reading this!
