Overall good advice but to remove clutter I'd rather include embedded social media buttons instead of visible ones. By removing comments you are also not a blog anymore by definition. Without commenst thare is no community on your blog and peopel stop caring about you.
What do you mean by embedded vs. visible social buttons?
I agree with many of his views, the content is the most important element of a blog. After reading this post I checked out the previous post about author marks, a system he's implemented to highlight areas which the author feels are important.
In short, he's added the ability for the read to toggle the highlights on and off. I think it's a simple but effective way to get your point across and will probably implement such a system on my own blog when I get time.Anyone interested can read the post: http://mattgemmell.com/2013/05/16/author-marks
