I think the pagination links (those numbered links at the bottom of your posts that indicate your post has multiple pages) should be right beneath the text of the post and not below the likes, sharing buttons and ratings.
I've made a little screen shot, to show you what I'm talking about:
I know it's a screenshot of my "Truly Minimal" themed blog, but this applies to all themes on WordPress.com.
Let me explain why I think it would be better to have the pagination right below the text.
I think with the current placement the pagination is easy to miss. When reading a post, to me it looks like it ends, when I see the likes, sharing buttons, ... I assume over 90% of all posts on WordPress.com close with one of these features. The readers get used to it so to speak. I worry a visitor might read a paginated post, see the likes and think "Well it's finished", might stop reading and miss the rest of the post. That's why I think the pagination should be right below the post text.
What's your opinion on this? Do you agree and think I'm on to something or should we leave everything as is. Love to hear from all of you. :)
