Great Blogging Tips

Get a schedule and stick to it

Having a regular and continuous posting schedule serves multiple purposes. It lets your readers know exactly when to expect your pearls of wisdom. You have a lot of competition waiting right out of your door, and more new blogs being started every single day. You can either post 5 days a week or just once. If you specialize in a certain type of information, you may not want to post every day, but you do want to keep your content relevant and fresh. This will keep your readers wanting for more from you. This will also keep you from being totally forgotten by your readers.
Another reason is for the search engines. You want the search bots to get used to a certain schedule and pattern of posting, and then they will regularly come to index your site.

Use Your RSS feed

That leads us to the importance of using your RSS feed. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. What you can do is encourage and entice your readers to sign up to your RSS feed, that way they will be informed and updated whenever you post an article. Your article will only be a snippet of-course. And if it catches their interest and intrigues them, they will click on your link and go to your blog. Also, many other blogger’s are looking for new and fresh content. If your posts are something they feel that their readers may be interested in, they will include it on their blogs. This will give you even more exposure and bring you in the spot light.

Stay on topic. Stay informative

If your blog is about the financial market, stick to it. Don’t write an article about erasing carpet stains, unless you can relate it to something financial. I know it may seem natural, but… if you are writing from the point of view of being knowledgeable about a particular subject, make sure you are fully updated with your information. If you are mainly offering your opinion, make sure that it is clear to your readers. It is important that you establish trust.

It’s your reputation

Never endorse or promote a product that you have not personally tried. It will quickly become obvious to every single reader who has tried out a particular product that you are oblivion of what you are writing about. Your readers may not always agree with what you write, but by having an honest and a true opinion and offering factual information you will earn and maintain their respect.

Write with clarity and simplicity

Be absolutely sure that your posts and blog entries are easy to understand and comprehend. What may seem obvious and regular to you may be something completely new to some of your readers. It always drives me totally nuts when somebody writes: “as everybody already knows”. Unless you are a professor who is speaking about a course that you have already run through with every single student present, don’t assume that every reader comprehends and understands what you are speaking about. Also keep in mind that the worldwide web is just that, global. You are able to reach a worldwide audience, so depending on what kind of subjects you are writing about you may want to keep that in mind.

Be sure to do a spell check and proof-read.

Hey, it only takes a click of your mouse to use your spell checker and a few minutes to go over and proof read your article, so do it. Nothing is as ‘unprofessional’ as having a few misspelled words in your article and typo errors. You may also want to consider and rethink what you are writing, especially if you are in a heated moment. Remember that everything you publish on the net is archived and stored and can be found later. So whatever you are writing about, take a moment or even a day, to reflect what you are posting.

Using the right Keywords

this can be a little complex. You need to use the right kind of keywords in your article for the search engines to index your post accurately. If a certain amount of people are searching for some information is using particular keywords, you should make sure to use them in your article, several times if possible. This tells the search engines that you have relevant content that is related to what people are searching for. The trick is not to make it seem to obvious. Be sure to use the keyword in your articles headline.

Quality matters

Look, you just won’t get that many chances with your readers. People can overlook many defects in writing styles and patterns, but the bottom line is that if you don’t offer the kind of information they are expecting and want, they just won’t return back to you. I know I don’t myself. So if you need to, be sure to do some up to date latest research on your subject. Until you become proficient in just being able to articulate off the cuff, take some to plan out your article, or series of articles.
