Videos that auto-play at the bottom of your posts means I WILL NOT EVER READ YOUR BLOG. Extend some courtesy to your readers and do away with the video advertising, or at the very least, make sure it doesn’t auto-play as soon as the page loads. I promise, you’re losing readers because of it.

Malcolm Bedell is co-author of the critically acclaimed "Eating in Maine: At Home, On the Town, and On the Road," as well as the junk food blog "Spork & Barrel," and "Brocavore," a blog about food trucks and street food culture. His contributions include Serious Eats, Down East, L.A. Weekly, The Guardian, and The Huffington Post and his food truck, "'Wich, Please," was named "Hottest Restaurant in Maine" for 2015 by Eater. Finally, he finds it very silly to be trying to write this in the third person.
