Blogs are typically about a single topic. If you want to make a great and exciting blog but don’t know where to start, you are reading the right article. Keep reading to learn everything you have to know to have a successful blog.
Don’t overuse things like plug-ins, ads, images, or keywords. Doing this will raise a red flag on search engines and cancel out your hard work. Instead, write in a conversational tone that flows naturally.
Find blogs within your niche and comment on their posts. Google Reader allows you to organize your blogs by folder. Make a folder for the blogs you most want to follow so that you can find them when you want them. Comment on these regularly, when there is something you want to divulge.
Make frequent blog posts. Many new to running a blog make the mistake of starting up a blog and then failing to update it enough. When readers are not given frequent updates, they may become bored. A good rule is to make new posts and email updates at least once a week.
Enjoy your blog, but don’t let it take over your life. If you don’t take a break, you run the risk of burning out. Take a short walk, call a friend or take a quick break for a few minutes. The time you take aside from working on your blog will improve the quality of time that you do spend on it.
Differentiate your blog from the mass of “me-too” blogs out there. Readers will be attracted to unique information. You can also interest readers by providing information they can’t find elsewhere. Turn your unique experiences and interests into blog content. Answer common questions comprehensively. The point of this is to provide your readers with a reason to check you out when they are looking for information.
