- A row of page tabs (just below the header). I don't think I've seen any blogs without page tabs, but it makes things a lot easier if I'm looking for a review or the blogger's giveaway policies.
- A search box. If I'm looking for something on a blog I like, I want to be able to find it easily.
- Short bio about the blogger. I don't want a novel (that's what the About Me page is for), but I like to know a little about the owner of the blog I'm looking at.
- Social media buttons. I want any easy way to follow you, including Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter and now Bloglovin'
- The blogger's current read. I love to see what everyone is reading and this is the easiest way barring finding their Goodreads account.
- Blog button. If I like your blog, I'll probably want other people to know and a button is the easiest way to do that.
- Follower and pageview numbers. I know this stuff shouldn't matter, but I like to see what kind of following a blog has.
- Blog tours. I love seeing what blog tours other people are in because I might be interested in the book on tour, and I also like to see if some of the tours are still open.
- Basic book rating. It's okay if it's explained in one of page tabs, but I'm happy to see it on the main page as well.
- Blogroll. This kind of goes hand in hand with having a blog button. I want people to know what my favorite blogs are!
- Book countdowns. I want to know what books the blogger is excited for and then how long until I have to wait for the books.
- Favorite books and book boyfriend teams. I like to see what people's favorites are and see if we share any of the same ones.
Well, I got to 12! That's good enough for me.
