By now, you probably have a good idea what blogging is all about. Blogs are online journals or diaries where you can write about things that interest you or just write about your life. They are generally more personal and informal than webpages and are one of the top growing areas of social media. If you have a blog you need to improve, or are wanting to start up a new one, keep reading for some great ideas.
Do not overuse Adsense ads, plug-ins, images or keywords. These things cause search engines to lower your ranking, making your site useless. Keep your writing organic, and allow it to flow smoothly.
Always make sure to blog on a regular basis. Many bloggers will start by posting once a week, or once a day, and then fail to continue the frequent updates. Those that have become interested in your blogs will lose that interest if you don’t provide new material on a frequent basis. A good rule to follow is to compose new blogs each week, and send emails about the updates.
Add new content to your blog regularly. People will return often if they expect to find brand new content. If new content appears infrequently, visitors won’t be motivated to come back to your blog. Post at least daily to keep your readers coming back for more.
Don’t forget your life that is not blog related! When you fail to take time away from your computer to enjoy all that life has to offer it can lead to obsessive behaviors, often resulting in blog burnout. Set aside time to go outside, visit friends, or even just mess around. Having some time outside of running a blog will prevent burnout and allow you to return from your break ready to write great content.
Use images in your posts. The power of a well-chosen image to add interest and clarity to your subject matter can greatly improve the effectiveness of your writing. Blog readers like to see what you are blog posting about. Pictures can say much more than words can. As such, be sure you use lots of images on your blog.
