5 Things You Need to Know to Write a Superb Blog!
1. Pick Your Subject Carefully......
It is very important to pick a subject that will be interesting, full of valuable information, and entertaining at the same time.
You want to be able to keep your reader's wanting more. Most people have a short attention span and will usually not read the entire blog, unless you zing them with interesting and entertaining content.
You must choose a topic that you are passionate about and that you have great knowledge of. It is best to check out a topic on Google first to make sure it is a popular subject that will guarantee a large audience.
You will need to do a lot of research before you start writing to insure you are providing accurate and information about your subject.
2. Stand out From the Crowd.....
You will need your blog to be separate from others and to make your visitors want to come back for more. You must show them you are worth remembering. There are many ways in which you can achieve this.
Since we have become so visual, it is important to incorporate great images and graphic in your blogs. There are many programs that provide you with unique pictures and ones you can create yourself.
Anyone can publish quality content. What you need to do is make sure your visitors are able to apply what they have learned in your blog and when they see that it works you will stand out from the rest of the crowd.
It is important to be personable and able to connect to your audience. You should make sure you reply to every comment. Also, be active at Social Media networks, as it is a great way to connect and interact with your audience.
Don't feel like you are under pressure to produce constant posts, as this will result in you not being dedicated to spending enough time to create unique blogs. It is far more important to have quality blogs with great content than a mass of those that are just filled with air!
Make sure the design you use is of great interest. There are many places that offer great templates that are free and many others that you can purchase. You could use a color scheme that gets your reader's attention, a unique header design that stands out, or just a good design that makes your blog different.
3. Content is Boss...
Nothing is more boring than to start reading a blog and lose interest in the first paragraph. You must be able to not only have great content, but it must be Epic content if you want to get tons of attention and a large amount of fans waiting for you next blog.
What makes epic content depends on how it affects the reader. It gets massive attention and should change the visitor in some way. Epic content will help to establish you as an authority and create loyal readers.
Authority, in turn, gives you credibility and influence. It will mean that your audience will trust you and want to follow you. Your blog should provide critical content that leads your readers to take a required action that they can't ignore, if they have any common sense.
If you can tap into the emotions of your readers, either by laughter, getting mad or just inspires them to take action, then you have succeeded in creating Epic content.
Add credibility to the data by citing your sources. Quoting or referencing the work of experts will add authority to your content.
4. Finding the Right Mindset..To be a great blogger, you must be able to have the right mindset. You must want to be able to help others, to provide them with something of value, something they need, something they can't get elsewhere.
You must be a Real person, have your senses en-tuned with what your readers are looking for, what they need, what they desire, what are their fears and dreams, then you will be able to connect with them on a level that will make you memorable.Be yourself, you have much to give and, after all, you are unique. Create your blogs so they display who you are, be fearless and own them. if you are crazy, weird, or just funny, let it shine in your blogs. Don't be the mundane blogger who only goes by strict rules, follow your own!
Haven't you loved reading some of those wonderful blogs that are somewhat colorful and grab your attention. You know the ones that create emotions and you feel a great connection with the writer? Don't be afraid to take risks, it is not as important to be successful as it is to be true to yourself.
