I have been working on constructing things and updating a few things. One of the biggest issues or problems I have had is whether or not to have a sidebar. for those who don’t know a sidebar is all of that stuff over in the right hand side of the post you are reading. After looking at several popular book blogs, I noticed that they do not have sidebars. while there are plenty of others who do. I have waffled back and forth on this for a long time now. Finally, I didn’t bring it to you as y’all are the ones who see the sidebar the most.
Pros of a Sidebar
With a sidebar, I can list things like giveaways and books I will be reading. There is a lot of information that I don’t have to post in a long, drawn out post for you to see. I can also advertise in ads there, which I currently use to make a small amount of money to keep this blog going. I will admit that I struggle with what to put in the sidebar from time to time. Another would be less clutter on the blog itself. You would click and post and only have that post to read. There wouldn’t be anything else.
Cons of a Sidebar
I have always had a sidebar, so I am thinking that the cons are not as easy to describe. There wouldn’t be anything there. The space would just be empty. For little things, I would have to do a full post or a social media post. Giveaways wouldn’t be shown there anymore. It’s just empty whitespace. That scares me more than you can know.
So, the big question is, do y’all want the sidebar or not?
