1. Social Media Links And RSS Feed
There should be link to all your social media. If people love your content they would like to follow you to get all the updates about you and your blog. You can also widgets of your social media on your sidebars. That way, people are just a click away from liking you and lazy people like me. Like those type of things.

2. Comment Section
Let your audience say what they want to say after they read your content. So, just give them an option to comment and also reply to your comments. Don’t just let your audience speak, reply and interact with them.
The comment section should be an easy process because people don’t like too long processes just to add a comment. In the comment section asking for Name, Email and Website, Comment is enough.
3. About Page –
Your fans would love to know about you and your blog’s history after they start loving your content. So, add a well detailed about page and tell the world of who you are and how you started your blog. No matter you are a blogger or you run a website an about page is a must.
