[As per the comments, there is alot of debate about this tip. If you google, you will get a LOT of heated discussions on record. I would like to point bloggers to a site that is a quickie intro to accessability in web design esp. relating to the visually impaired. Visit here for that.]
We all work hard to make the best blog we can, no doubt. There are many things we have to master to make it look presentable, it all can be so confusing huh?
One thing I suggest to help your blog be more sticky is to direct links to open in a new window. Back in the early days of aggressive "porn" ads, pop ups plagued us but that seems to have settled down a bit (or maybe thats my filter?)
Anyways, to make your links direct your reader's browser to open a new window (and thus not navigate away from your content and be lost to some other site) use this code.
(Note: Please substitute a back carrot (<) for the back bracket ([) and a forward carrot (>) for a forward bracket (]) in the folllowing link code.

and once your do the substitutions, this looks like this:
Let me know if you have any problems with it!
