If you are thinking about starting a blog, start with having a theme for what you will be writing about. When people like what you post, they will return to new blogs. A popular, interesting blog can be built by anyone, focusing on topics that range from telling jokes to showing photographs.
You should add to your blog as often as possible. One of the most common mistakes of bloggers is starting a blog and updating it infrequently. Your reader wants to come back to read something new, and they won’t return if they don’t think you’ll be posting. A good rule of thumb is to create new blogs weekly and send out email updates.
Make frequent updates to your blog. To increase and maintain your traffic, you need to provide new content on a regular basis. Without more content, visitors will stop coming to your blog. Try to aim for posting at least one time every day.
Make sure your posts are brief yet to the point. Providing your readers with plenty of details is important, but if your post is too long, many visitors will tire of reading it. Apart from certain literature blogs, people don’t want things described with the level of detail that a famous author might use. In other words, focus on the meat of the post, not the garnish.
Read your reader feedback and respond to it in a neutral, positive manner, and don’t let it get to you emotionally. Whatever the subject is, there will always be people who criticize. Constructive criticism is a great way to see where a blog is lacking. Any that don’t offer something of value, you should reply to let them know you’ve read it and forget about it. This will display a greater sense of professionalism, and will impress your readers.
As mentioned above, it’s possible to start an interesting blog on just about any topic. Have some videos posted, quotes and pictures to really grab people’s attention. Keep what you’ve learned here in mind to build the best blog possible!
