    OK, first up... what exactly do you want your readers to do?

    Where do you want your readers to go?

    Until you provide that information, it will be hard to come up with a good call to action.

    Also, your blog design seems cluttered and it's hard to read some of the text under "recent posts".

    I'm not even sure how you intend to monetize that blog, the posts seem quite random (well, I suppose musings would be).

    On the other hand, one of your posts is an analysis of "Sailor Moon", so I give you props for good taste in entertainment.

    Regards,
    Daniel

    I am not sure if I understood your question correctly. But anyways, will respond in two different ways;

    How do I insert a decent CTA inside my blog posts? If you have too many posts on the sites, manually inserting the CTA might be cumbersome except it is done with some tools that automatically place the CTA at the end all the posts depending on the theme you are using.

    If you are asking about the type of CTA to use; it largely depends on what you intend to achieve with your site, why was the site set up in the first place, who are the posts meant for, what do you intend to achieve with each post etc. The questions continue. If you are able to respond to these questions, then coming up with a CTA should not be a problem.

    I also discover that the posts are kind of random and some texts blended into the image on your homepage which makes it unreadable.

    Do some work on your homepage at least to make it enticing and appealing to your site visitors as well.

    Thanks

    Personally I always place the call to action near the beginning of a page. It must be visually impacting and decisive. When the user sees it, you want to encourage immediate engagement.

    Is this a technical question, a "do my work for me" or a "look at the site in my sig" thread?

      No, I'm trying to figure out what I'm doing: thank you for the comments, everyone--I'll work on them, and then make some more, call-and-response-like.

    First, you always have the option to update your old blog posts, so you can change them as you like in order to insert a CTA, but what is your goal from your CTA, is it to sell something or to simply get more Email subscribers, If it's the latter, then I suggest you to use this format one time and anywhere inside your blog posts: (Would you like to your free ebook giveaway, you will learn how to make a sense of life).

    Hope this helps, good luck

    I am an expert Blog...reader.

    From my experience reading some of the best blogs out there and always searching for more I think the best and most effective strategy is to always have a list builder opt in at the end and one way to do it is create several incentives to join your lists tailored exactly to the theme of what the blog post was about.

    You can even segment your lists to the blog post topic and begin to share helpful content and occasional recommendations on each of those topics.

    You have to be more specific with what your objective is.

    Do you want to get email subscribers. If so, use an email form and a send / submit button.
    Do you want the reader to keep reading. Then put a link that says "Continue Reading"
    Do you want the reader to fill out a survey. Ask them to fill out the survey.
    Do you want the visitor to buy something. Put a "Buy Now" button next to the product.

    That's what a CTA is, telling or asking the visitor to take action. Generally, it's a link
    with instructions to it. Otherwise, it's direction for your audience to do something for them
    to get something.

    It could be for other things too, such as for polls, a link that says "see results".

    What do you want your blog visitors to do next? Sign up to your list? Buy your product? Once you figure that out coming up with a call to action is easy.

      Okay, I want my readers to subscribe to an email list, and I want them to keep reading blog post on my site, though it will have links to offsite articles in the text, because I don't think it would be moral. Does that make sense?

    I have no idea of what to do, or what the site is about when i visit your page. Make it simple. Present an offer of your services, offer something for free, and just sell. Right now i doubt if anybody understands it. How many sales or clients have you gotten so far? It also needs a redesign.
