Bento&Co sells a variety of Japanese kitchen products. On the home page of their online shop, they post this colorful graphic to bring you over to their blog.

2. Give Graphic Preview of Blog Posts in Drop Down Menu

Shop Terrain sells a variety of home products. At their online shop they have a blog called, The Bulletin. When you run your cursor over its heading in the main menu, you get a drop down graphic that shows you the last four blog posts.

3. Make it Standout in the Menu

Capwell+Co does something very simple to get you to notice their blog by highlighting it in the menu bar with a graphic. BHLDN does something similar by putting the name of their blog in a different color and typeface in the main menu to make it stand out, as does Shop Terrain in the second graphic above.

FINAL WORD: There’s no point having a blog if visitors don’t even notice it. Which of these ideas are you going to try? Let me know your results!
