Blog Questions

It’s now been a week since I started this website, so now that the dust has settled a bit I’d like to ask a few questions. Specifically I’m interested in what format or tools you might find particularly useful.

Is there a comment system you like to see on a blog? Do you like seeing “follow me on …” links or do you find them annoying. Is it useful to have related posts, etc.

As I mentioned in my first post, I’m most familiar with Google+, and that has its own community. I’m hoping this site will draw a wider readership, so I’d like to make the site as useful as possible with few annoyances if I can help it.

So any suggestions you more experienced blog readers have would be greatly appreciated.
