Building a website that is based on a format that stresses interactive website building is possible and it is easy to accomplish. There are many free services online that will allow your visitors to interact with you the web master or you the blogger.
The free services that use the blog format usually come with the ability for your users to add comments to your posts. Make sure that you set your comments to be added only after you have inspected them. Sometimes people may try to add very odd comments on your website that your other readers will not appreciate.
Another way that you can interact with your followers is to add plugins that create more of a community feel in your blog. For instance, you can simply add to the side of your site, a plugin that has a summary of the recent comments that have been left.
By adding video to your blog or website, people will feel as if they are being entertained at your blog and may turn into regular visitors.
Since there are thousands of templates that you can use freely on the internet, make sure that you pick one that you can easily edit and enhance. I like to use the simplest templates possible and then I just add my favorite plugins to it.
Another way to create a community atmosphere is to include a gallery of photos on your blog. Perhaps you just went on a trip and you would like to share your photos with the followers of your blog.
