Are you a blogger? Are you passionate about blogging? Are you new to blogging and want to try it out? The question for today is “What do you blog about?”
Blogging seems to be taking over the Internet little by little everyday and everywhere. Almost every other site you come across is a blog and (or) has a blog on it. Celebrities are doing it, teenagers in high school, and just about everybody else. But as a webmaster “What do you blog about?”
Making a blog is easy to set up and install but making it successful can be a great task. Whenever you see a successful blog with great contents, lots of traffic and subscribers, doesn’t it make you wish this blog was yours? Well no it’s not. Enough of the day dreaming.
Below there are 5 main steps to making your blog successful:
1) Your blog title.
Your blog title or the domain name has ALOT to do with getting targeted traffic to it. For example: If you came across a blog which was titled, Online Photoshop Training For $50.00 or Photoshop Tips. Which blog would you be more interest in? I don’t know about you but I would be interested in the Photoshop Tips titled blog.
2) The theme or layout.
As soon as a visitors come on your blog the layout and theme is the first thing that greets them. If everything is jumbled up or too much ads it just might turn your visitors off and never want them to come back.
3) Your blog’s content.
Always provide you audience with rich content, meaning they will want to read whatever you have posted in your blog. When adding a new post always get straight to the point and stick to it.
4) Interacting with your visitors
Have a section on your blog where your audience can contact you, or whenever they make a comment on your post you can also make a reply so that they know that you care about them.
5) Post regularly
New contents on your blog makes your visitors come back to read them. You don’t want your audience to stray after you have “captured their minds.” Always have fresh new content for them to read.
Following those 5 steps closely can make your blog a big success. In the next topic I will talk about promoting your blog and getting traffic.
