NEED MORE EYEBALLS ON YOUR BLOG?
Who doesn’t. More and more, seems like people just do not want to read. Is it Chronophobia, fear caused by thinking too much time may be involved to read? Perhaps, and I have a cure for this.
Take a look at the Reading Time WP plugin by Jason Yingling. What this plugin does is estimate your posts reading time, displaying same at the posts beginning (or, wherever you wish with use of a shortcode). Average adults read at a pace of 300 words per minute (who knew?) so the plugin does the math.
Maybe this extra validation will encourage your site visitors to spend a minute or two reading your stuff.
